My son and his bride chose Bickleigh Castle for their wedding, what an amazing place to celebrate. It was absolutely wonderful. Everything was perfect – from the lovely cottages, breakfasts, cream tea in the afternoon when we arrived, the Barbie in the evening to the most wonderful wedding ever!
So seamless and perfect without one realising how much hard work goes on being the scenes. A massive thank you to all at Bickleigh Castle – wedding breakfast amazing food, chef, fireworks incredible and the dancing and singing in the evening!
The castle is medieval, but the rooms and bathrooms are quite modern and comfortable. The owners and staff are warm, friendly, helpful and efficient, and went out of their way to ensure that the wedding reception, breakfasts, dinners, fireworks, etc. were all over the top. The owner and wedding coordinator exceeded expectations a number of times to ensure all went well – even to the sewing up of a broken zipper on a bridesmaid’s dress as she headed for the church! We will definitely spend more time at Bickleigh Castle.
The food for breakfast was delicious and very filling, The tour of the castle was very good and informative and learnt a lot of interesting facts. The accommodation was spacious and really nice. Definitely worth recommending. Would defiantly stay here again
It’s just like a movie scene. Beautiful scenery, wonderful location, superb hospitality, I honestly couldn’t have wished for a better few days. John and Sarah could not do enough to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. Thank you once again to both john and Sarah for all you did and making us feel so welcome.
The management gave us 2 rooms in one of the cottages with our own private landing. The rooms were very cozy and the beds comfortable. John gave a group of us a 1hr 15 min tour of Bickleigh Castle on the second morning. It was a unique experience to be able to stay on the grounds of a place with so much history. I would highly recommend it to everyone!
From the start of coming to view the Castle, your kindness and hospitality has been amazing. Sharon did a fab job at helping us organise the most perfect day imaginable, and very prompt with replying to emails and speaking with us about anything we needed; this made the whole process run so much smoother, cut down on the stress, and I think that it really showed on the day just how well everything came together.
On the day itself, a lot of guests commented that they thought they were at a Celebrity Wedding!! It was a lovely touch for Sarah to come and see me and give me the last roses out of her garden, and the love and kindness from Sharon and Polly was really touching; it was obvious how much they wanted us to be happy and give us the most perfect day.
We cannot say Thank You enough for giving us a Wedding Day that we didn’t even know was possible. We knew our Wedding Day would be special, but we didn’t know it was this possible to be this happy, and now, we will hold on to these memories forever. We just wish we could relive the day again and again and again. We are so proud to have had our Wedding at your venue and would recommend it to anyone for future weddings. It was 1000 x better than we could have ever imagined.
My husband and I celebrated our 15 year anniversary at Bickleigh castle and were very happy to have stayed there as its fantastic! The castle is amazing and the owner gave a very interesting tour! Very special in a beautiful location. There is a stunning river and bridge at the bottom of the road where you can sit in a pub garden and enjoy the view.
After an amazing night sleep, we went to the Orangery. Freshly made Coffee and warm Croissants were awaiting us together with Juice, Yogurt, Cereals and Toast.
We upgraded to the Tudor, I love Tudor history and all that it entails. Oh my goodness!! It was divine!! The bed was the best bed that I have ever slept on…so big and comfortable. This isn’t just a B&B ….this is England at it’s best!!
My partner and I stayed at Bickleigh Castle for a midweek getaway and it was amazing. The room and the entire property are magical and the staff are extremely helpful. Would highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a nice romantic break and we will definitely be coming back.
