Bickleigh castle is full of old fashioned charm. Yes it's a little rough around the edges but the beautiful setting more than made up for it. Our bedroom was charming. Very comfortable beds with a very nice bathroom. We did have to go and find replenishments for our tea and coffee tray and our room was not made up when we went out for the day so things are slightly haphazard.
However we just loved everything else so we could overlook these minor details.
We had the continental breakfast each morning of our stay and it was more than adequate, lovely fresh fruit and yoghurt followed bt croissant. The young men serving us were friendly and helpful.
We would love to return as this place is so unique and in a lovely part of Devon.
