Went back again this year and they've changed their policy on dogs - they're not allowed in the bar or any of the other areas apart from one lounge and bedrooms of course. Really disappointed as the...

We've just returned from an overnight stay at Bovey Castle and wish it had been longer. From the moment you arrive you are treated to 5* service. The hotel is both impressive and welcoming and the staff attentive without being overly fussy. Our room in the main building was huge and we were upgraded to a suite when the internet...

We have just returned from the wonderful Bovey Castle having celebrated my husbands 60th birthday with family and friends. This fantastic hotel is set in beautiful grounds and is currently undergoing major renovation (which did not in any way intrude on our stay).

We loved exploring this wonderful hotel and grounds; the geat old hall (complete with fantastically enormous Christmas tree), the minstels gallery, quirky collections in the bar, gardens down near the river, and the relaxing pool, sauna and steam room. The staff were really helpful and friendly and our room, recently refurbished, was spot on.

This was our second week-long stay at Bovey Castle - the first one had been 4 years ago, when it was managed by another group. It is now part of the Eden group. We had a wonderful stay on both occasions - one cannot beat the views and location. But it is clear that money has been spent on the...

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
