Hidden away on the edge of Dartmoor within the gently sloping Tamar Valley, this historic country house and hotel hosts luxury ceremonies and receptions all year round. Find yourself totally lost in acre upon acre of wonderful landscaped garden created by Humphry Repton in the 19th century, including the amazing grottos such as the Shell House, as well as myriad other follies.

Several rooms and spaces at Hotel Endsleigh are licensed for civil ceremonies, including the Little Shell House, the Parterre Garden and all of the ground-floor rooms in the historic house. Wedding breakfasts and formal receptions of various sizes can be hosted in the appropriate rooms, and up to 150 guests can enjoy lavish celebrations in a marquee erected out on the lawn.


Formerly the residence of the Dukes of Bedford, the property was previously known as Endsleigh Cottage. The mansion was commissioned by the 6th Duke of Bedford, John Russell, and constructed in 1810 by renowned architect Sir Jeffry Wyattville, known for his work on Windsor Castle and Chatsworth House.

Lady Georgiana, John's wife, was reputed to be a driving force behind the creation of both the house and its stunning gardens.

In 2005, the celebrated interior designer and renowned hotelier Olga Polizzi purchased the property and began to bring it back to its former glory - with a little touch of modern luxury to boot!


Hotel Endsleigh presents a variety of stunning spaces ideal for wedding parties of all shapes and sizes. The entire property is available for exclusive use.


All of the ground-floor rooms are licensed for civil ceremonies, which includes the Parterre Garden and the little Shell House.
