Lovely castle and grounds
I went on the tour with my Mum and 2 sisters. Bickleigh is on our doorstep and what a gem the Castle snd grounds are. The grounds were well kept, the staff were friendly and the cream tea was yummy. The tour was interesting with added humour by the very knowledgeable tour guide. We thoroughly recommend a visit. Thank you

Excellent
John Vaughan, the curator, led the tour and he was extremely good at imparting knowledge to what was quite a large group. Very interesting afternoon followed by a delicious cream tea. Amazing scones!

A lovely treat
A really lovely gift (a Christmas present). We went in late May and it was all wonderful. The tour guide (John?) was also the curator of the castle, and was knowledgeable, entertaining and personable, and did an excellent job, so it was both educational and enjoyable. Perfect for history lovers! The cream tea was fresh and delicious, and savoured while sitting out at a bench in the castle garden - serene and beautiful surroundings. Before we left we had a chat with the the lady of the manor who was forthright and very charming! It may be small as 'castles' go but is full of interest, lots of history, and charm. It's beautifully and lovingly kept. A visit and a place that I will remember. The staff couldn't have been more pleasant. The whole visit left a very favourable impression. We are resolved to go back for another visit and enjoy it all over again.

Interesting castle, beautiful grounds.
We had an interesting and informative tour around the castle and enjoyed the grounds in the early summer sunshine. Only small gripe was that our cream tea was not very generous compared to those we've had in other places. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Interesting Historic Castle
A pleasant couple of hours spent touring this very old and interesting castle. Grounds are small but with fantastic display of Rhododendrons. Cream tea was not the best we've had.

A lovely afternoon
Quirky and charming castle and grounds. The host were very attentive and clearly loved what they do. My only criticism would be that the Cream Tea was very small and didn't feel like a "Red Letter Day experience. Two medium sized scones were provided to share between two people, just took the edge of the day. Which was a great shame.
