A beautiful hotel & golf course in a stunning location. The hotel is comfortable & well appointed with all mod-cons within a well maintained building & all new additions are sympathetic to the original style. The staff were wonderful & made the visit a great experience.

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at Bovey Castle. The staff greet you on arrival, take your bags to your room and park your car which leaves you to enjoy your stay. Cleanliness in the rooms is second to none. In the restaurant or Bistro, the staff are attentive but not overpowering to the point where they keep coming and checking if you are happy with your meal like they do in some places. The staff are very professional but extremely friendly. The events team are very helpful if you are planning anything other than just a night's stay.
I was made very welcome at Bovey on the two days I stayed there and I would love to go back!

Room Tip: The views overlooking the gardens and golf course are the best to ask for when booking a room. The G...

We arrived at Bovey Castle and were greeted by concierge and were carried through our stay with flawless detail and attention
We had a wonderful lunch and then off to activities in the grounds from archery to laser clays
we then returned to the main building and were treated to a great dinner
then the games and of course some of us ended up in Bovey's snooker room until the small hours popping up now and then to the amazing bar to sample some of the finest Gins on display
In the morning it was off to the golf course with a 7am tee time! early but well worth getting up for, the course was quiet but well groomed and the greens were being trimmed ahead of us adding some fun to our putting, on return to the main house our bags had been placed in the boot of our cars and all was ready to depart- fantastic!
Many thanks to all at Bovey for a truly amazing experience and will certainly return

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!
