Fantastic stay at High Bullen !

Just returned from a wonderful week's holiday at Highbullen Hotel. Our family stayed in Deer View cottage and also used Room 90 (just beside Deer View Cottage) The views from both were amazing and we saw deer within a few minutes of arriving!! The facilities are excellent and we all enjoyed using the pool, gym and tennis courts regularly. We would thoroughly recommend.

Probably the nicest staff in the whole of Devon

This is a nice hotel and very good food but needs a little tweaking . Most of the rooms are in the grounds so you have to walk outside for food. Why oh why isn't there umbrellas in the rooms. Whilst on the subject no make up mirror and no full lengh mirror. But rooms nice and large, bathrooms need refurbing with shower no more than a shampoo spray and no hot water at 6. But I would still say give this place a go the staff alone is worth a visit every single one was not just nice they went out of their way to go the extra mile.
Food is either in supper room (staff particularly good) or fine dining. Both very nice but please serve vegetables in the supper room. Everyone needs veg please. Lots to amuse the older children which is a blessing for anyone with teenagers but if you are a serious golfer then you may be a little disappointed. Course not really up to scratch and to have the grass cut whilst you are trying to play is particularly annoying but most of all is the fact that there is no pro shop there at all. The gym on the other hand is FIRST CLASS. Really very good. Excellent breakfast really very good.

A golf and country club hotel witha range of facilities in a beautiful rural setting

Enjoyed a five night stay, as a base for touring North Devon. Relatively isolated location, but the countryside setting and the hotel grounds are worth the effort. Stayed in one of the accommodations a short walk away from the main house, but of a good standard and was comfortable, with parking adjacent. Several options for meals in in evening with a choice of a supper room, or bar, or restaurant for fine dining. Nice staff.
