Did you know you can also bring your canine companion with you and enjoy a UK dog friendly stay in style? Keep reading to discover our top 5 fun things to do at Bovey.


1. Bike your way round Bovey

Autumn is a fantastic time to see Bovey, with vast countryside grounds to explore, crisp air to breathe and stunning orange scenery, you and your significant other will want to see it all. We recommend hiring a bike at Bovey, so you can cover more ground and get your heart racing.

Keep your eyes peeled for rare wildlife and flowers. Bikes hired at Bovey are strictly for the grounds, but if you’d like to challenge yourself and discover more of Dartmoor we’d advise hiring your bike here.


2. Walk your way round Bovey

If you’d prefer a leisurely walk around the grounds and going further afield with your furry companion at your side, we can provide you with a walk booklet starting from the hotel and expanding out to the rest of Dartmoor. This is a great chance to soak up the autumnal scenery of the rolling Devonshire countryside, immerse yourself in Bovey’s historic 275 acres, and enjoy a dog friendly stay in the UK that prioritises peace, natural beauty and fulfilment.


3. Eat your way round Bovey  

After exploring the grounds on foot or bike, you and your pooch have probably worked up an appetite. Settle down to enjoy a British staple, our afternoon tea, filled with sweet and savoury treats for you to tuck into. Later on you can both head over to our Cathedral Room to indulge in an award-winning evening meal, and with a special dog menu available they can enjoy a taste of the action too.

Dogs can also join their owners in the Library, and explore our impeccable range of books. Once you’ve found the book for you, curl up in our seating area under the main staircase. If the sun is shining, take your four legged friend out onto the South Terrace to enjoy a delicious cold beverage.


4. Relax your way round Bovey  

Everyone needs a relaxing break – that’s why our luxurious spa is a great way to unwind with your other half this autumn. This will be a great opportunity for you to leave your dog to relax and sleep off the walks and food in your hotel room, whilst you and your partner enjoy a well deserved pampering.


5. Play your way round Bovey 

As the winner of the 2020 PetsPyjamas award, (think TripAdvisor, but for stays and activities with your dog), we think it’s only right you top off your dog friendly stay in the UK by taking advantage of the Bovey Gardens, where you can soak up the great autumnal outdoors like never before.

Bovey Castle is a dog friendly destination with endless activities to keep you and your furry friend entertained. Whether you’re looking for a scenic stroll through the grounds, a challenging bike ride with your other half, or a relaxing day at the spa, there’s something for everyone and their dog to enjoy at Bovey Castle. Pack your bags, bring your pooch and book our autumn stay offer with us.
