About Kitley House & Country Estate

A hidden gem of a country house 

The one-mile meandering drive to our country house and wedding venue in South Devon is well worth the wait. At the end of the tree-lined driveway, you’ll be greeted by the silvery facade of our 500-year-old former manor house.

Faced in marble quarried on the estate, Kitley House is an imposing Grade-One-listed building with a steep gabled roof and a multitude of tall chimney pots. Inside, this sense of history continues. The wood-panelled reception with its coats of arms and striking castellated fireplace sets the scene for the rest of this elegant building.

Outside, hundreds of acres of quintessentially English countryside are yours to explore: rolling hills, landscaped terraces, extensive woodlands, a lake and the tranquil Yealm estuary. It’s not surprising Kitley has long been recognised as a place of outstanding beauty, featured on television and in many films.

Kitley is grand but it’s far from austere. You’ll find a warm welcome here and a relaxing, friendly atmosphere. and exclusively yours!

Venture down the drive and find out what a very special place awaits you!

Fresh food prepared by our chef and his team, using local ingredients, many from our own estate. Try our new à la carte menu for dinner, a bar-style lunch or indulge in a cream tea on the terrace.

Cream Teas

The ultimate mid-afternoon treat. Indulge in a Devon cream tea or a full afternoon tea in our restaurant, in one of our quiet reception rooms or on the Terrace with views of the estate and lake. Freshly-brewed tea or a glass of bubbly are the perfect accompaniment to our finger sandwiches, scones and cakes.

We found Kitley House to be a gem hidden away within acres of woodland just waiting to be explored. The house is full of historic charm and the rooms and service were faultless. Worth the drive from London and will be returning.

The last time we stayed at Kitley House it was excellent. Service, food, entertainment - All First Class!


Kitley has a very different feel to it now. It is cosier and visibly more cared for now that it is a family run hotel. The staff are still as friendly as they have ever been but the place itself now appears to be being loved.
