BOVEY CASTLE. YOU'VE ARRIVED.
A stay at Bovey Castle is a unique experience of true English luxury. From the tailored tweed plus-four trousers worn by the hotel concierge to the apples and sloes gathered from the estate to make traditional cider and gin, Bovey Castle draws its contemporary and luxurious appeal from the manor house’s rich heritage and the surrounding ancient moorlands, chosen for Steven Spielberg’s War Horse.
Holding an unrivalled position within a 275-acre estate on Dartmoor National Park, Bovey Castle is aspirational in its meticulous delivery of luxurious hospitality, exhilarating and traditional country house pursuits, sumptuous décor and roaring log fires. Built at the turn of the 20th century, heritage and history are at the heart of the hotel, which was constructed in the neo-Elizabethan style of oak panelled rooms, striking fireplaces and ornate plaster ceilings.
With the hotel’s luxury accommodation divided between 64 uniquely-appointed rooms and 14 lodges, the estate includes an 18-hole championship golf course, event and conference facilities, the UK’s flagship SUNDÃRI spa and one of the most extensive selections of activities to be found at any hotel. A member of Pride of Britain and Smith & Family travel consortias, Bovey Castle is a popular destination for both leisure retreats and family-friendly breaks.
