This year at Bovey Castle Hotel and Spa, we’re looking forward to Christmas more than ever before.

After a month of staying indoors, we are now open and looking forward to welcoming you back. What could feel better than a festive break full of delicious food, plenty of beautiful countryside on your doorstep to explore and a luxuriously comfortable bed to return to.

Christmas on Dartmoor is an experience to treasure forever and at Bovey Castle, it’s a truly special time you won’t want to miss.

The Bovey Christmas experience


For a unique Christmas break, there’s no place like Bovey Castle. Our team has been working hard to ensure guests’ wellbeing and safety is at the forefront of everything we do and our hotel is accredited by The AA and Visit Britain, recognising that we are following COVID-19 Guidelines.

During the festive season, Bovey Castle transforms into a winter wonderland, with rooms illuminated by spectacular Christmas trees and plump armchairs nestled against tables laden with walnuts and oranges.

Whether you’re looking to unwind over Christmas in our Elan Spa with a festive pampering treatment or stay in one of our boutique bedrooms, there’s an experience for everyone at Bovey.

For the freedom to enjoy your festive holiday your way, why not explore our luxury private lodges. Located in the rolling grounds of Bovey Castle, our contemporary self-catering country lodges offer ensuite bedrooms (sleeping up to a maximum of six adults), a kitchen and open plan lounge and dining area that leads out to a private balcony with beautiful views across our estate.

Explore Dartmoor this winter


Bovey Castle 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.

A fantastic way to explore a wintery Dartmoor is by foot, where you’ll be able to experience the rugged scenery at its finest. Embrace the wilderness on a trail through the tors, such as this moderate 14-mile route around Eastern Dartmoor.

For a ‘wild’ adventure, head to Dartmoor Zoo where you can experience their Christmas Zoo Nights. Their extended opening hours on selected dates in December will make your evenings merry and bright, creating magical memories as you follow their enchanting trail around the zoo.

However you choose to spend your time whilst at Bovey Castle, you can be sure it’ll be a magical trip to remember. Things may look a little different, but we will still be looking after you in the special Bovey way…we can’t wait to see you soon!
