We booked our stay on a special offer which made it much more reasonable. We thought that although the hotel was dated at times this added to it's charm with wonderful grounds, open log fires (although didn't feel this was necessary to be lit in June and did mean that we left with our clothes smelling of smoke and did...

We can not thank the Manager and Staff enough for making this day so very special. From the moment we arrived the greeting by staff, was excellent. We were taken to our Lodge and then on to the Summer House where we had a champagne afternoon tea. What a fantastic experience. Highly recommend the Spa, the staff were very friendly... More

Having stayed in the lodges at bovey for many years on business and pleasure we once again enjoyed a wonderfull break in this very special part of the country. It is however not just this special location that ensures a stress free break but the staff as well. The helpfulness and happy nature of the team is highlighted by Fredrico... More

Having spent 4 nights with our family in one of the hotels lodges we can't wait to go back! The whole experience was simply first class. We made use of all the hotels facilities and the BBQ pack was tremendous. Our 3year old daughter especially liked the chickens, ferrits and bird of prey display. The staff were exceptionally helpful, courteous... More

Certainly a highlight of our SW UK tour, inspired by Travelzoo - the latter are great at getting deals but poor at any follow up. Attempts to confirm some 'deal' details were ignored. Thankfully Bovey Castle came to the rescue responding in a timely and informative manner. I suspect the hotel had a word to Travelzoo who finally came back... More

The hotel is in a lovely setting however the hotel is not up to standard. The rooms need to be up dated and no air conditioning in the rooms and eating areas. The food and alcohol is very much overpriced. The valet parking was good however our car was parked in a corner and unlocked, we were not impressed. I... More

We stayed here for two nights for our minimoon. We wanted to completely relax and unwind and so chose a large country hotel which had everything we needed on site. We booked a package which included dinner on the first night, otherwise I would agree with the posts that say that the restaurant is rather expensive. The staff were lovely... More

The hotel is set in wonderful grounds which are well maintained. There is an 18 hole golf course and a range of activities including shooting and archery. There is a good spa. The hotel building itself is quite impressive but there is a need to attend to some of the décor. The food was good to excellent but let down... More

Went to Bovey Castle for afternoon tea. The hotel is in a fabulous setting and valet parking was a nice touch, with very professional staff. We ate our afternoon tea in a lounge, overlooking a fireplace...would have been wonderful in winter months. The lounge was decorated to a high standard. The afternon tea was good,have had better (however location and... More

I saw in the press a few weeks ago that the property had been sold,and it seems that over the last decade it has changed hands several times,always for several million less than had been paid for it - I have to assume that it's not easy to make a profit from the hotel,despite the sums charged to customers.

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
