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...

This is almost certainly the most memorable place to stay I have ever experienced. The location is outstanding, the service superb, the resturants excellent. The facilities are first class. The staff seemed to go beyond normal standards. The atmosphere around the premises., the gardens and the rooms was extremely relaxing. Did not want to leave. Food in both resturants was...

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. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and polite. The evening meal was excellent however my only complaint would have been that the hot breakfast...

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. The lodge felt fresh and modern, its a very nice update, the gardens were magnificent and the golf course in the best condition...

Fabulous hotel where they do everything for you. Beware that they unload you car and then take it away. I was caught out by leaving stuff that I needed in the car ... which was not parked close. That aside had a great time playing golf with 27 friends.

There is something about this place that has expertly blended the old heritage building with a modern experience in just the right way. Parking is easy as it is valet. From the moment that you arrive, you are treated as if you are an invited guest at a country seat. The rooms are of good size with smart facilities and...

This is a very imposing hotel set in parkland on the edge of Dartmoor. My wife and I attended for afternoon tea in early May. The hotel is 5 star rated and had the ambiance and furnishings to match this rating. We were shown to the lounge to our table and were made to feel welcome. We upgraded our tea...

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
