Premier family destination

Named by Mr & Mrs Smith Awards as one of the top ten family hotels in the world, Bovey Castle is the ideal getaway for short breaks with kids. We positively encourage children to stay in the main house but many parents opt for the freedom and privacy provided by our 22 self-catering lodges tucked away in the hotel’s grounds.

Whichever option you choose, you get to enjoy all of the hotel’s facilities, including housekeeping services. As a result, even short breaks at Bovey enable you to return home feeling relaxed, refreshed and recharged.


Perfect for kids of all ages

However young – or lively – your children are, you’re assured a genuinely warm welcome at Bovey Castle. With so much to do within the 275-acre estate and the local area, the whole family will be kept entertained during your short break.

After spending time with the kids exploring our vast private estate or the dramatic Dartmoor National Park, you can escape for some 'grown-up time'. While you sample a spa treatment, enjoy a round of golf or learn how to make cider and sloe gin, your children will be well looked after by our qualified staff.  Older kids have a choice of exciting Bovey Rangers activities, while under 7s can get crafty in our supervised Playroom.
