Gidleigh Park, Chagford

Located in the idyllic countryside on the edge of the utterly peaceful Dartmoor National Park is the exquisite Gidleigh Park. A gorgeous Tudor-style country-house furnished with luxury and comfort, this ravishing property is set within 107 acres of woodland and pleasure gardens and is the home to a renowned Michelin star restaurant. 

Gidleigh Park’s tempting restaurant is run by executive chef Chris Simpson, who was previously the Head Chef at Restaurant Nathan Outlaw for 7 years. Open for lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, this restaurant serves carefully crafted and bursting with flavour dishes from its ever-evolving à la carte menu. The dining area offers a warm and intimate setting which is ideal for romantic evenings or a gathering amongst friends which is perfectly accompanied by tasteful interiors and knowledgeable staff.

For lunch, you can enjoy three courses from the à la carte menu which boasts delicate and thoughtful flavours, ideal for refreshing your palate at midday. You can also experience the seven-course tasting menu that is available both at lunch and at dinner, which has been created with flavours to tantalise your taste buds and is an excellent way to see what the talented chefs at this Michelin star restaurant can truly do using the highest quality of local and seasonal ingredients. On par with its kitchen’s high standards and reputation is Gidleigh Park’s internationally renowned wine cellar. One of Britain’s finest collections of wine, this cellar holds over 1300 bins and 13,000 worlds from around the world; the on-site sommelier can hand-pick the perfect wine to accompany any dish you choose.

Step out of the dazzling dining area and relax in the sunny conservatory, the cosy lounge or on the outside terrace to enjoy a traditional Afternoon Tea. Using the best seasonal produce in Dartmoor, you can enjoy thick sandwiches, fresh-from-the-oven scones, clotted cream and preserves. Finish off with a selection of individual patisseries and a slice of tangy and moist lemon cake – make it an extra special afternoon by upgraded your Afternoon Tea with a flute of the finest champagne.

Found on the edge of Dartmoor National Park and in the picturesque post-card-perfect village of Chagford, there are plenty of walks and trails to enjoy after dining at the luxurious Gidleigh Park.
