Birthdays are wonderful. They are the perfect excuse for a celebration and today was no exception. From the moment we drove up to the front of the hotel we just new this would be another wonderful occasion. My door was opened and we were welcomed.

This hotel has everything! From Cider Making to Hot Air Ballooning and a resident African Grey (daily bird displays too!) Rooms are comfortable, food in the Edwardian Grill is outstanding and the wine list - wow. If they haven't got it, its not worth having! The spa is wonderful, as is the pool area. So many places to sit and...

Bovey Castle Hotel is a super place to stay from the moment of arrival where you hand the car keys over to the valet to park your car, to being escorted to your car on departure. Staff are very attentive and pleasant in general. We stayed on a Sunday night and had booked via the special deals available. Our room...

Golf course is a great layout, the only disappointment are the greens being painfully slow and investment is needed there otherwise a great facility with great golfing staff who will have your...

Visited Bovey Castle for a friends wedding. Nice hotel, a bit dated (it is quite old and well maintained) but they were recently acquired by a new owner with other hotels around England, so we heard that they will be investing in fixing and improving the facility. Very nice staff and especially Frederico the hotel manager. He is by far...

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
