Why Not Get Friends & Family Together With Our Great Value House Parties?
It's Time For A Unique Castle Party
With our unique and historic setting, Bickleigh Castle is the ideal holiday destination for a large group of family and friends to stay for a fun filled weekend, week, or longer. Perfect for groups between 20 and 40 guests, we are able to offer luxury breaks from self-catered, part-catered or fully-catered.
Our private estate comprises a large amount of land, encompassing fields, gardens and the beautiful river Exe. Previous groups have held football games, zorbing, tug-of-war, cricket and archery to name just a few.
It is ideal as a base for outdoor activities. With plenty of local cycling routes, fabulous walks, fishing and golf local courses, there is fun on our door step for guests of all ages. People have enjoyed rafting on the river in the Summer with inflatables, ‘wild swimming’ and canoes, but for serious watersports enthusiasts, it is ideal for kayaking, and you can paddle down the river for miles. If you wish to bring a kayak, we have suitable storage space.
You are not, of course, tied to the Castle! We are in a beautiful part of mid-Devon affording some very good walks and cycle-rides. The local town of Tiverton has, apart from shops, its own Castle, horse-drawn canal barge trips, and the thriving city of Exeter is only nine miles away perfect for culture, artisan eatery's or just some retail therapy.
Bickliegh Castle offers a truly unique environment for families and friends to party like kings and queens of old, or kick back and relax. With comfortable bedrooms, modern facilities and flexible accommodation, if you are looking for a great value and unique destination for your next group holiday, you simply won't find better.
