2. An extended autumn break

With the sun setting on summer and autumn fast approaching, what better time to escape to a private sanctuary during your hotel staycation. Enjoy a cosy stay in one of our elegant rooms, perfect to unwind in as the leaves turn orange. With spectacular autumnal views over the valley, hotel gardens or Dartmoor National Park, our state bedrooms are ideal for indulging in a lovely bubble bath, leaving the cooler winds outside. Get the most out of your hotel staycation with our extended autumn break offers and make it a trip to remember with friends and family.

3. Stunning grounds and autumn activities

Soak up the beautiful autumn colours when you come for a staycation. Take a trip out into our grounds and explore the wonderful woodland walks, riverside trails and autumn walking routes we have to offer. Stomp through the leaves across Dartmoor’s National Park or arrange a tour to take in the magnificent views across the countryside.

If you’re looking for unrivalled opportunities on your hotel staycation, then our activities offer an exciting array of experiences that don’t always rely on the sunshine. Submerge yourself in country pursuits with clay pigeon shooting, which offers a unique experience for both beginners and novice shooters. However, if the autumn breeze is a bit too much, head inside to our on-site distillery and take part in a cocktail and gin masterclass experience to warm up the cockles. For those who are up for a challenge, our award-winning 18-hole championship golf course, designed for us by J F Abercromby is both beautiful and challenging. Meandering through the hotel estate, and surrounded by idyllic landscapes, golf at Bovey Castle is perfect for putting some holes.
