If you're looking to enjoy a luxury Christmas hotel break in the UK in 2019, there's no place like Bovey Castle. Experience the magic of a country house Christmas as the hotel is transformed into a festive hideaway for December, with rooms illuminated by spectacular Christmas trees and plump armchairs nestled against tables laden with walnuts and oranges. The hotel is idyllically situated in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, so take the opportunity to explore the area and visit local festive events in the surrounding towns and villages whilst you’re with us.
Christmas With Eden

December is our favourite time at the hotels and we can’t wait to deck the halls and get the mulled wine simmering. The aroma of roaring fires mingling with the fresh smell of pine from the Christmas trees is really quite magical and we’re keen to get the celebrations started.

Everyone knows that Christmas is all about the food, and food has always been at the heart of our hotels. Our eight award-winning chefs across the collection spend most of the year dreaming up even more indulgent ways of spoiling our guests with their Christmas menus and this year looks to be no exception.

We invite you to join us for Christmas and New Year breaks, festive events and pampering spa treatments, not to mention the happy thought of our teams plying you with excellent Champagne, wine and fabulous festive food. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing the festive season with you.
