We stayed at Bovey Castle for a company team build and party. The experience was first class from the warm welcome, efficient check in, wonderfull rooms and comfy beds. Views accross the Golf Course are spectacular. PDS had left his home from home touch at this property with great service from friendly staff together with comforting good food.

Beautiful secluded setting away from everything in the heart of Dartmoor National Park.
Staff were all very attentive and helpful.
The swimming pool is a very good size.
The chef and his team provided a high quality lunch and dinner for a conference with 70 delegates.
The list of activities on offer provide plenty of variety.Quad biking on 125cc machines in woods on rough tracks was fast, vigorous and great fun.

We held our annual company away day at Bovey Castle.

We were looked after from the moment we arrived until the time we had to leave.

Marc, the Executive Chef and his team's food was outstanding.

Highly recommend it

Room Tip: Ask for the heating to be turned down as rooms very warm!

We recently had a company event at Bovey Castle and I must say it was excellent. The grounds and facilities are amazing and the staff were incredibly attentive without being obtrusive. Would highly recommend

We stayed at Bovey Castle and managed to watch the falconry display, play golf visit the spa and eat at the Edwardian restaurant. The whole experience was fantastic - lovely food great place, the grounds were stunning (bluebells everywhere) and the golf course was really well maintained The falconry display was entertaining and interesting - Martin on top form as were the delightful birds.
I have to mention the staff - everyone was really warm and welcoming, from the lady who did my spa treatments to all the staff at the hotel and the guys looking after the golf bookings
Frederico the manager really went the extra mile to make sure we were happy. He had his hands full as there was a wedding there but I heard lots of people saying how well organised it all was and what a special time they were having and still had time to talk to everyone and add that personal service.
We will be back - many of my friends and family are now visiting Bovey. Well done. Great management team!

As a celebration of our wedding anniversary, my Wife and I spent 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. We stayed during the first week of June so missed the school half term as Bovey Castle is a favourite with families. We could see why as there are many activities for all ages and we tried our hands at archery and air rifle shooting. We also had spa treatments each which were very relaxing and skillfully delivered. The pool has excellent views over the surrounding moorland and the sauna and steam room are great to relax in.
The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. Inside the room is a flat screen TV, kettle, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits, water and bath accessories. Our room was south facing with views over the grounds and the rolling hills.
The entirety of our stay was seamless from the hotel Manager greeting us at the main entrance to the staff packing our car and waving us off on the final day. Bovey Castle is a very relaxing environment and a beautiful building. A short walk by the river along a woodland trail will take you to the village of North Bovey with thatched roofs and a classic country pub.
The staff were very personable and incredibly helpful. The bar staff mixed a mean cocktail and the food was of the highest standard both at the Bistro and the Edwardian Grill.
I would certainly return here in the future and definitely recommend Bovey Castle to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with views of the grounds on the south side.

As soon as you enter the hotel driveway, and meander along the single track road, through the golf course you can't help but take in the beautifull surrounding countryside, as you arrive at the front door to the hotel the doormen dressed in their "plus fours" greet you with a smile and a warm welcome, they then proceed to take care of all you luggage and golf clubs, and park you car for you! just a lovely welcome to this excellent hotel. My third visit here was at the end of May, and i arrived early at 9.30am, but within half an hour i was being shown to my room (number 6) and was just in time to see the "Birds of Prey" demonstration taking place right below my bedroom window, fantastic!! Pre dinner drinks were taken in the lounge, before being shown to our lovely window table, Dinner as usual was just perfect with lovely fresh food and very attentive service. This hotel is a MUST to visit, where you will be pampered and spoilt, but it's great fun!!
