My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days in a lodge house... Basically the hotel has a number of lodges dotted through the resort. These lodges are self contained and can sleep 6 people comfortably. The grounds are beautiful and you can play golf, tennis, archery, shooting and all on the grounds of the resort. The resort...

We are arrived to celebrate my wife's birthday. Its years since we were last there and its visually as impressive as ever. Valet parking, a tour of the hotel and confirmation of bookings, such as the Spa. Our Castle Room was spacious, but the bathroom was basic and the operation of the shower, poor. Service in the Oak Bar was... More

Have stayed at Bovey a number of times and have never been disappointed. Nothing is too much trouble, the staff are friendly and efficient. We also had a weekend in December to celebrate a 50th and 20 guests stayed with us. There were no complaints only appreciation and promises of returning. Whether you stay, just have afternon tea, or visit... More

An amazing experience in a truly outstanding hotel, luxury and family friendly in an almost perfect package Pros: - the building and the park are both amazing, old-world luxury at its best. We have been to many other castle hotels but this one is the visually most appealing. Its location is also good, although being in the midle of Dartmoor... More

We were here for a wedding recently. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we were treated like royalty. The whole place oozes charm. Our room was fairly large and looked out over the courtyard, it was nice to watch all the comings and goings. We had breakfast in bed and it was a treat with everything... More

Absolutely first rate service in a stunning location. Extremely welcoming and not at all pretentious. There is a lot going on at the hotel to appeal to children of all ages. We also really enjoyed making use of the swimming pool.

We booked the hotel for a couple of nights midweek. We are much happier giving positive reports, so will start with the positives which are many. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds, most of which is a Golf course and the view from our window was lovely. We had dinner both nights and the food was, on the whole,... More

We stayed for one night on a Friday evening. The grounds were absolutely lovely and the staff (especially those in the lounge) were very welcoming. We reserved a junior suite which was extremely comfortable, although I must admit that the room itself and the furnishings were a bit more worn than expected based on the photos shown on the website....

A genuinely luxurious experience with the right mix if class and fun. The afternoon tea is really very good value for money and is the best one I have ever had. The setting and back drop are beautiful from the grounds to the castle itself, both inside and out. The atmosphere is amazing and the staff are great! If you... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set within its own private estate on the dramatically-beautiful Dartmoor National Park, Bovey Castle is a five-star country house hotel and an unrivalled destination for a luxurious rural retreat. Built at the turn of the century, Bovey Castle has remained loyal to the subtle vision of grandeur upon which it was founded, and the understated-elegance of this bygone era continues to echo throughout the hotel. Within the 275-acre estate sits the 64 bedroom hotel and 14 granite lodges, both offering luxurious accommodation for family breaks, activity holidays, romantic escapes or corporate and incentive team building. The championship 18-hole golf course surrounds the historic manor house, while the estate lends itself perfectly to Bovey Castle’s extensive selection of on-site resort activities. Immerse yourself in the luxuriously-appointed décor and outstanding service, relax in the holistic spa and indulge your taste buds with decadent food and fabulous wines. ... more   less
