Gidleigh Park

Gidleigh Park is an impressive Tudor style house that sits majestically within 107 acres of serene gardens and woodlands on the north bank of the River Teign. Nestled inside the Dartmoor National Park, Gidleigh provides a perfect escape. With picturesque walks, historical houses and quaint villages all within reach there is something for every guest to explore in the area and you can’t help but fall in love with what ends up feeling like your new home.

Gidleigh’s history is rich and ancient, dating back to the time of William the Conqueror in the 11th century. But it was not until 1660 that it was bought as a private home by Mr Bartholomew Gidleigh himself. After passing the property on through several owners, Gidleigh Park was eventually converted into a small and simple hotel in 1955.

Today, this charming and luxurious hotel comprises of just 24 rooms, so there is still a feeling of privacy and exclusivity as you would have with a private home. Each room is beautifully appointed and has been individually designed featuring fine antiques and artwork, with stunning en-suite bathrooms and spa suites that inspire a true sense of indulgence. There is also The Pavilion, a charming thatched cottage reached by a footpath along the river, which is ideal for those looking for a more secluded stay. The service at Gidleigh is warm and friendly, and each morning you will have tea and shortbread delivered to you in bed as you wake in the morning – a perfect touch!

The hotel has built an esteemed reputation for itself around its two-Michelin star restaurant which, under the onsite Executive Chef Chris Simpson, serves contemporary and refined food, the quality of which you would struggle to find elsewhere. Chris Simpson arrived at Gidleigh Park in January 2018 and is renowned for outstanding dishes, cooking only with the very best of local ingredients.

Gidleigh Park offer thes ultimate five-star experience; come here to indulge, savour and relax on a getaway that you would not regret.

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
