What a generous thoughtful gift! been here previously for lunch on another birthday present a couple of years ago. So many choices of different tea - we went for the afternoon tea - seemed appropriate! sandwiches, cakes, scones with excellent jam and cream followed by a further choice of delicious cakes (petit fours?) - Had to sit down in one...

Everything about our 2 night, 3 day visit to Bovey Castle was exceptional...not cheap by any measure but truly exceptional in every aspect. We visited as part of a group of 14 (7 couples) for Golf/Dinner/Private meal and weekend stay and every aspect of the stay was superb, dare I say a quintessentially English experience, from a friendly welcome by...

I went to Bovey on a Travelzoo spa day offer. I am a wheelchair user and had informed staff of this when booking. To get to the pool we had to go through more than one set of swing doors and getting in to the changing room was nearly impossible! The cushions on the furniture were ripped and shabby. The... More

Superb weekend in a beautiful location. First rate accommodation, service and food, would 100% recommend. Only one very slight negative is the price, however you very much get what you pay for. We stayed in Room 16 which we thought was newly refurbished as it was immaculate. Visited our friends room which was a suite (50) which again was gorgeous.

Beautiful setting, gorgeous building and interior. Excellent service and top quality sandwiches, cakes and tea. Not cheap, but top notch. And Beaky the parrot certainly adds something unusual to the ambiance.

They say first impressions count and no more so than with hotels. My wife and I only stayed at the Castle for two nights but realised immediately as we turned into the drive that Bovey Castle was special. The greeting was exactly as you would expect for a five star hotel and the service was always exemplary. The facilities were... More

In short Amazing hotel and lovely staff every single one of them. This is a reasonably priced 5 star hotel with a real country feel. You can eat in the fine dining restaurant or the more relaxed Smiths brasserie. We recommend getting up early to meet the ferrets and the birds of pray. And don't forget to to hi to... More

This was a very special treat for my partner and I we had never visited let alone stayed in a place like this.

Room, food, service all perfect. A real 5 star hotel without the stuffiness of some other hotels in this league. Went with 2 teenage daughters who loved it. Very beautiful and peaceful. Fantastic views.

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 22 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
