Location: Great Bidlake Manor, Bridestowe, Devon, EX20 4NT

""Great Bidlake Manor was a superb place for a family holiday. With the weather being lovely the grounds were ideal for all ages with a spot of cricket, some football and of course some sunbathing too. This was by far the best property we've stayed in. Couldn't fault anything! Lots of little touches which are well thought through with no expense spared. Carol (the housekeeper) was a great host who made us feel welcome (Many thanks).  Definitely would come again" Mr. B on 21 August 2016 "The perfect location for a memorable holiday" Mrs. J on 1 August 2016 "Great Bidlake is beautiful and provided us with a peaceful and extremely comfortable holiday"  Mrs. T on 25 June 2016 "An excellent, extremely spacious and impressive property for a family get together. There were seven of us meeting up from four different locations and we all felt very much at home at the Manor. And the weather was good. Plenty to do though in the Manor if the weather's bad" Mr. B on 8 June 2016 "Excellent property, extremely comfortable and probably one of the best-appointed rental properties I have stayed in. Special mention to Carole and Jonathan (the housekeepers) who were very helpful and attentive. We would definitely recommend Great Bidlake" Mr. G on 28 May 2016 “What a fabulous venue for a family get together.  Great Bidlake Manor surpassed all our expectations in terms of quality and location.  The rooms are beautifully appointed and large in size yet they always feel warm and welcoming.  Lots to do nearby in terms of activities, and surprisingly close to the beaches in North Cornwall.  We will definitely be back!”  Mr. M 14 May 2016 "The property was great and we had a lovely time staying there, despite the worst efforts of the weather" Mr. S. Tuck  on 11 April 2016 "Fantastic location, fabulous property and facilities" Mrs M on 24 March 2016 "This property is very spacious and retains many original features, but has all modern comforts. The showers are brilliant, with lovely quality towels and even fluffy dressing gowns provided. We loved the large open fires which, as it was cold during our stay, we made full use of. Carole (he housekeeper) was friendly, helpful and professional and the house was immaculately presented" Mrs C on 1March 2016"
