What a great place. Everything about the weekend was superb. Immaculate attention to detail. Staff were fantastic. Dinner was amazing accompanied by excellent wine. Cocktails in the bar were first class. Overall a brilliant experience. No faults.

Recently spent two nights at Bovey Castle and had an amazing time - from the moment you enter the drive that leads up to the hotel you know that this is going to be special. The building is impressive, the grounds extensive and the lounges and bars magnificent but it is the efficiency, professionalism and friendliness of the staff that...

This was our second stay and although my husband felt that the food wasnt as good as last time - the fish pie was mediocre at best and certainly not worth the price tag! We stayed in a Castle View room, which is one of the newly decorated ones and which I would certainly recommend asking for. We didnt use...

We wanted a small wedding.... We wanted a special wedding... We wanted a memorable location... Were we asking the impossible?? No not at all, I found a listing for Bovey Castle offering small, off peak, mid week weddings from 10-20 people (less if you prefer) for a very reasonable cost, so I investigated. Yes, our date could be accommodated and...

We visited Bovey castle for a 50th birthday celebration and spent 3 nights there, the first one in the hotel and the other 2 in one of the lodges. We slightly preferred the lodge but as they have 3 bedrooms, you need to be there with other people and of course we were. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful...

We (group of mums and daughters) have just returned from a wonderful night at Bovey Castle. Bovey Castle was perfect for us, with lots of places both inside and out to explore. Beautiful building with gorgeous furnishings yet very relaxed and comfortable. Great bedrooms with thoughtful touches, such as fresh milk, plenty of water and small gifts such as fudge...

My partner and I stayed at the Bovey Castle on a Thursday night, celebrating a birthday. At the time we stayed (March ’17) there was fairly extensive renovation work taking place to a part of the hotel.

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
