We just wanted to thank the team for a truly lovely afternoon at Bovey Castle, only enhanced by the wonderful sunny weather out on the terrace. A special mention must be made of the fact that our vegan & gluten free dietary requirements were catered for so well - fantastic offerings both sweet and savoury (and definitely the best GF...

Played here about 7-8 years ago - had good memories of the course. The course was in excellent condition this time around as well - beautifully set up - challenging in areas - thoroughly enjoyable. I would've given an "excellent" rating, however the golf seems to be a secondary priority - the Pro Shop has been moved downstairs with little...

Had a wonderful two night stay at this luxurious country hotel for my 50th birthday gift from my parents. Our rooms were opulent, spacious and comfortable with amazing views. The staff were welcoming and friendly and obviously loved their castle. The golf course looked amazing although we weren't able to try it this visit - next time hopefully! We had...

This is a five star hotel and appeared excellent from what I saw of the facilities. It has a good sized swimming pool spa and brassiere. I didn't stop overnight in a room but would seriously consider it in the future. We went to play golf there but decided to have a breakfast in the restaurant beforehand. It was £20...

We were recently treated to a Cream Tea at Bovey Castle. I can only describe it in one phrase, pure luxury. We were met at the entrance & the car was taken & parked for us. The setting in the Devon countryside is wonderful, the hotel being surrounded by the golf club. The inside of the hotel literally takes your...

Great location, building and grounds. Wonderful service from valet parking on arrival to welcome in reception and staff in general. We had a cream tea which was great and way too much for us... Hotel was warm, with a great eye to detail and very clean. We were very lucky to be upgraded and our room was spacious and comfortable....

We spent 3 nights at Bovey Castle. It was just fabulous! The venue is stunning. Large beautiful rooms. Very friendly and helpfull staff, they even washed our car. Very interesting display by the local falconer with his Fisheagle and owl. Nice walking around the premises. Food was excellent and beautfully presented. Only negative point was that we wanted to have...

Had a lovely stay and although the weather put pay to the outdoor activities the cider making and slo gin tasting was great. The room was extremely comfortable and every detail had been thought of.

Stayed for a few days in a refurbished lodge (Cox Tor) and it was marvellous. My wife and dogs are regular visitors to Bovey over the last 8 years and this I thought was the best yet.

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
