Great Bidlake Manor Self-Catering

Holiday home
A stunning 13th century Grade 11* manor house over three levels, located in lovely countryside a mile from the village of Bridestowe on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park. It is a very special and unique destination for families and big groups of friends to gather. It sleeps 12 in 6 en suite bedrooms plus library, a sitting room, TV room, music room complete with instruments, dining room, breakfast room with wood burning stove off the well equipped main kitchen, smaller second kitchen and a games room. You can arrange for caterers to cook for you if you wish. There are 13 acres with gardens, woods, ponds and paddocks with wonderful views over the moors. Play croquet, eat alfresco in the lit barbecue area with chimenea.There is beautiful moorland to explore beyond the manor, with opportunities to walk and cycle, and with a pub in Bridestowe village and lively towns at Tavistock and Okehampton there are plenty of eateries and shops to browse. National Trust Lydford Gorge is a stunning place to visit. Great Bidlake is a fantastic place to spend time with friends and family.

Nestling among mature woodland on the western slopes of Dartmoor, the historic village of Lydford is a jewel in this area of outstanding scenic beauty. To the north, just half a mile away, the high tors come right down to the village edge, while to the south the River Lyd winds its way through Lydford Forest on its tumbling course northwards.

Devon, with its quiet country lanes, patchwork of lush green fields and sleepy villages is not to be missed. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

Everything was absolutely wonderful - great bedrooms, fantastic en-suites, well-equipped kitchen, great sounding piano... Rabbits. Sheep. We've never used Sonos before - very nice. Comes with its own wood & walking distance to the pub. I can't think of anything that wasn't lovely.

Bidlake Manor is a lovely place to stay.. This was our second family holiday there and accommodated the 10 of us superbly. A family Birthday made even more memorable. Our two dogs could not fault Bidlake either, acres to roam.

The people who met us at the property were very helpful.. There were no problems. We thought it was excellent value for money, given the vast size of the property. We didn't really have time to take advantage of all the facilities on offer.

Eight of us stayed for a week. It took a few hours to navigate the huge house. The rooms are all stunning, all en-suite and each has its own attraction. A great place to dine in once you get used to the cooker. Lots of little snugs for a quiet read. Everything worked. Well placed for all sorts of days out all within an hour. Well worth a repeat visit.

I booked Great Bidlake Manor to celebrate a significant birthday. My wife and I were joined by five other couples and the house proved to be a superb venue for relaxing and celebrations. The facilities are second to none - my wife did the catering in the well appointed kitchen and all twelve of us were able to sit comfortably at the beautiful period dining table in the large dining hall. All six bedrooms are wonderfully decorated and furnished with extra king sized beds and on-suite bathrooms. Plenty of fiction and non fiction books in the library together with local maps and guides. There are open fires in the lounge and dining hall which we lit and the underfloor heating keeps the whole house nice and warm. The boys enjoyed the games room with the pool table, dartboard and games console. Outside the extensive grounds are great for a pre-diner stroll and in the summer the large patio area would be great for drinks and eating al-fresco. Okehampton, Tavistock and Launceston are only a few miles away and worth a visit and Exeter is about half an hour away straight down the A30. In conclusion I would thoroughly recommend Great Bidlake Manor to anyone seeking a luxurious break on the edge of Dartmoor

This beautiful Manor House was everything we hoped for and more, exceptionally clean luxury accommodation which was very well equipped and the heated flooring and fires made it a lovely cosy retreat for a get-together for the whole family.. The house has generous accommodation with enough room for people to have their own space if needed, but simultaneously providing informal and formal dining areas for the whole family and likewise with the sitting room. The open fires were the icing on the cake. We also loved the separate music room, the TV room on which to view either one's own DVDs or the wide selection provided. There was much else to take advantage of if so inclined, such as the study with a wide range of books, the pool room, darts board, second kitchen with full washing facilities etc. It was an idyllic setting and a really well furnished and thought out large family home that we felt privileged to have been able to experience. In fact, the whole experience made some wonderful family memories and we would love to return in the future.

Beautiful house .. We felt extremely well provided for. Plenty of utensils and it seemed that our comfort was paramount.. Local pub. The White Hart very friendly and welcoming --11 adults, 2 children and 3 dogs.... we had an amazing tme. Have already booked for next year. The house is clean, atmospheric, and well thought out. It is by far the best one we have stayed in.

Great Bidlake Manor is an outstanding property ideally suited to quiet family getaways.. It was immaculately presented and every comfort was provided. The games room was a real bonus but the beauty of the house and grounds was a permanent distraction for us. Thank you so much for a wonderful break away from it all.

The House was amazingly comfortable, with many added comforts.. The bedrooms were large with excellent en suite facilities. Every comfort had been thought of and the kitchen was well stocked with facilities to cook. There were provisions provided for us eg. coffee, tea, tin foil, cling film, dishwasher tablets etc. All in all the best house we have stayed in.

Staying in Great Bidlake Manor feels like a cross between a luxury country hotel and a family home.. Everyone in our party, from the youngest to oldest, thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The addition of tea and coffee in the kitchen, plus all the logs for the amazing fires, were a wonderful extra you don’t normally get in self catering. Everything had been thought of to make your stay the best ever !

I have nothing but praise and thanks for the owners and caretaking staff at Bidlake .. My one area for improvement would be the potholes in the approach drive , however it did not distract from having a good time
