We spent a few days in August at Bovey Castle with our teenage children to celebrate my birthday on the 12th and my husband's birthday the following day on the 13th. We had some difficulty in locating the hotel but once we arrived we were treated very well. Derek, a member of staff, greeted us and escorted us to our... More

Beautiful setting in the middle of the moors. Everything was fantastic and had been well thought out. The food was delicious and there was a wide variety of choice. There is an extensive drinks menu which covers all budgets and tastes. The staff were polite and welcoming, especially the bar man who very kindly unlocked cabinets to enable me to... More

Excellent location, staff, accommodation and food. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, felt very welcome and the genuine helpfulness of staff made a real difference. It is a very special place, and is deservedly popular for weddings. The golf course is beautiful, and the spa relaxing (although jacuzzi is an area within the pool, so a bit cold!). The falconry is... More

We stayed for 3 nights and were made to feel very welcome. The greeting at the car and the effortless transfer of the cases to our room were excellent. The Hotel has a very relaxed feel and the one thing that really impressed us was the friendliness of the Staff. The Bedroom (Castle View) was very comfortable. We had dinner... More

My husband and I recently stayed for our mini moon. We enjoyed every minute and felt totally relaxed after a very busy week. The spa treatments were amazing we both had different treatments but enjoyed them equally, a special thanks to Danielle. Having been away and eating lots all week we chose to eat in the Bistro on both nights... More

We had a lovely break with our dog Maisie. We were made to feel most welcome and the staff were all very welcoming and attentive. The hotel has fantastic grounds and sometimes we felt we were the only people there. Millionaires walking. The Edwardian restaurant was excellent although some of the parents need to control their children at meal times.... More

Average, average, average. A pretentious, over priced golf hotel which seems to think it is a cut above. It's not. If you favour having your wallet squeezed for second rate service and an over developed estate, go ahead. ... And your fellow guests... You wouldn't ask them round for dinner... Really, take plaid trousers and a pastel golf jumper to... More

We love this place... Just spent two nights at Bovey Castle and warmly welcomed by all the staff and the Hotel Manager Frederico. This hotel is very family friendly and our young son was given star treatment! Our room was beautiful, comfortable, clean and well supplied with towels, toiletries and tea/coffee. The facilities available to guests are fantastic including beautiful... More

A shocking experience visiting Bovey Castle to have High Tea previously booked by our daughter as a than you for her wedding the previous Saturday at a lovely venue in South Devon. On arrival, the first impression was one of quality and clearly great efforts had gone into the visual effect of the ' Castle '. Once inside, my wife... 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
