Highbullen Country House Hotel is an Arts and Crafts-style property, set in a 125-acre estate overlooking Exmoor's verdant valleys. The property was named Large Hotel of the Year and won the bronze Taste of Devon accolade at the 2014 Devon Tourism Awards.
The hotel, positioned halfway between Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks, is in a great location, is just an hour's drive from Exeter on Junction 30 of the M5. The property is a 40-minute drive from Westward Ho! beach, a "magnificent swathe of sand" (Rough Guides), and just under an hour's drive from Saunton Sands, Croyde and Woolacombe -- three of North Devon's top surfing beaches. Torquay and Paignton on the English Riviera are an hour and a half away by car.
The hotel has a fine-dining restaurant, which is open every evening for locally sourced meals accompanied by panoramic views of the Devon hills. In the mornings, guests can feast on a continental buffet spread, and there is also the option of a cooked breakfast. More casual meals, including burgers, pies, pizzas and pasta, are available in the Cellars restaurant and bar, or grab a sandwich at the Club Bar.
There is an 18-hole golf course in the grounds, which has "excellent greens" and a number of "outstanding holes" (The AA). Hotel guests can play at the reduced price of £10 per person, and buggies and clubs are available to hire. Other activities include tennis, fishing and shooting. There are also two croquet lawns, a fully equipped gym, and indoor and outdoor swimming pools on site.
Standard Rooms are cosy and have free Wi-Fi. Deluxe Rooms are more spacious, and Superior Rooms are larger still. Bedrooms were refurbished in 2013 and are in the main manor house or in the neighbouring estate buildings, with views of the lawns. Superior Rooms in the Forrester's Rest are more secluded and overlook Exmoor. These rooms can accommodate dogs -- quilted beds and treats are laid on, and kennel accommodation, dog walking and grooming can be arranged.
