1. Embark on a enchanting stroll around the castle grounds

Take a leisurely stroll hand in hand with your significant other and discover the sprawling 275-acre estate right on your doorstep. As you soak up the historically rich and beautiful area, keep your eyes peeled for the Dartmoor ponies, deer and other rare wildlife along the way, adding a touch of wild romance to your journey. 

2. Live out your fairytale fantasy with a carriage ride into North Bovey

Every romantic stay should include a fairytale adventure, which is why we invite you to embark on an enchanted carriage ride into the glorious village of North Bovey. You will both have the chance to take in the stunning Dartmoor scenery, the local history, closely followed by an exciting river crossing before returning back to the castle in style.
