CHRISTMAS AT BOVEY CASTLE
Arrive at Bovey Castle for a host of festive activities including a visit to our Long Barn for cider and sloe gin making, then join us for afternoon tea accompanied by carol singing. Your first evening includes welcome drinks and a five course dinner, accompanied by our house pianist.
Awake to a traditional breakfast followed by a visit from Father Christmas with gifts for our younger guests. Then why not enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery on the estate by trying out our brass rubbing trail. The revelry begins with a drinks reception followed by a fabulous Christmas Day lunch in the Great Western Grand Grill accompanied by a harpist. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the King’s speech which will be shown in the lounges with tea and mince pies. An informal buffet dinner will be served in the evening. Then retire to the Oak Bar for a Cognac or two.
Following breakfast sign up for the golf tournament, join us for a guided walk, or take part in our treasure hunt around the Castle and grounds. In the afternoon our much-loved ferret racing is a firm favourite, as is our ‘nearest the pin’ golf competition on the South Terrace, served with hot chocolate or mulled wine. Family activities are available all day. A savoury and sweet afternoon tea will also be served in our lounges throughout the afternoon with a magician and jazz band to entertain. A high tea will be available for young children. Finish your day with a cocktail reception and five course dinner in the Great Western Grand Grill (dress code – cocktail wear) followed by entertainment from a singer in our Cathedral room.
Enjoy a full English breakfast before bidding a fond farewell.
