I reckon that Bovey Castle is my favourite hotel anywhere in the world, and I've stayed in quite a few.
It manages to feel truly special, extremely welcoming without being in the slightest bit stuffy or up itself.
From the moment you arrive at the front door and the guys in tweed plus-fours park your car, from there on in you couldn't be made to feel more welcome.
The remote location that's such a big bonus is only a negative when travelling there as it's quite a long way off the main A38 or A30 up some beautiful but windy roads.
Overall I can't recommend it highly enough.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set within its own private estate on the dramatically-beautiful Dartmoor National Park, Bovey Castle is a 5 AA Red 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 60 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 decor and outstanding service, relax in the holistic spa and indulge your taste buds with decadent food and fabulous wines. ... more less
