AUTUMN’S RIOTOUS COLOUR

TAKE A TURN IN HOTEL ENDSLEIGH'S LEGENDARY GARDENS

THE DUKE OF BEDFORD, WHO TWO CENTURIES AGO OWNED A THIRD OF DEVON, CHOSE THE BEAUTIFUL ENDSLEIGH ESTATE FOR HIS HUNTING AND FISHING LODGE. OVERLOOKING THE RIVER TAMAR AND BEYOND INTO CORNWALL, HOTEL ENDSLEIGH, NOW OWNED BY OLGA POLIZZI, IS SET IN 108 ACRES OF GARDENS, WOODLAND, FOLLIES AND GROTTOS.

THIS YEAR MARKS THE BICENTENARY OF THE DEATH OF HUMPHRY REPTON, THE RENOWNED  LANDSCAPE GARDENER WHOSE GARDENS AT ENDSLEIGH WERE HIS LAST COMMISSION. 

AUTUMN IS AN ENCHANTING TIME TO VISIT; FLOWERS ARE STILL ABUNDANT, TREES AND SHRUBS STILL HOLD THEIR FORM BUT ADDED TO THE MIX ARE GOLDEN HUES AND FIREY TINTS. AS WINTER DRAWS CLOSER IT BRINGS A PARED-BACK CLARITY TO REPTON'S ORIGINAL DESIGN REVEALING THE STRUCTURE OF THE GARDEN, THE DRAMATIC COMBINATIONS OF WATER AND ROCK COMING TO THE FORE.

THERE IS MUCH TO ENJOY AT ENDSLEIGH IN THE COMING MONTHS AND AS AN EXTRA INCENTIVE THROUGHOUT NOVEMBER, DECEMBER AND JANUARY IF YOU BOOK THREE NIGHTS AT HOTEL ENDSLEIGH YOU RECEIVE THE 3RD NIGHT FREE. AUTUMN OFFER
