Arriving for the first time, as you round the corner of the long and winding drive, from the distance appears Gidleigh Park.
The quintessential country house is nestled in a wooded valley within the natural beauty of the wilds of Dartmoor, Devon. Its location is breath taking and the views are something else altogether. Taking in the gardens of the estate and the river running through, the house is a backdrop to showcase an eclectic art and antique privately owned collection. The journey to Gidleigh is of course so often made by those seeking to enjoy one of the finest dining experiences in the UK.
Gidleigh Park’s Executive Head Chef Michael Wignall is famed for his respect for food and an ever evolving style which creates unique dishes full of flavour, underpinned by a contemporary, less formal approach to fine cuisine. Describing his food as ‘modern, technical and meaningful’, each element features to add flavour or texture, enticing diners to experience new combinations and ingredients. As one would expect, the dining experience is matched with one of the finest cellars in the UK, holding over 1,300 bins under the expert guidance of our sommelier.
Adding to the five-star experience, the bedrooms at Gidleigh Park are of exceptional luxury. All individual in style and design, they feature the most stunning bathrooms, wet rooms and spa suites that inspire a true sense of indulgence.
