Certificate of Excellence
Set within its own private estate on the dramatically-beautiful Dartmoor National Park, Bovey Castle is a 5 AA Red Star country house hotel and an unrivalled destination for a luxurious rural retreat. Built at the turn of the century, Bovey Castle has remained loyal to the subtle vision of grandeur upon which it was founded, and the understated-elegance of this bygone era continues to echo throughout the hotel. Within the 275-acre estate sits the 60 bedroom hotel and 22 granite lodges, both offering luxurious accommodation for family breaks, activity holidays, romantic escapes or corporate and incentive team building. The championship 18-hole golf course surrounds the historic manor house, while the estate lends itself perfectly to Bovey Castle's extensive selection of on-site resort activities. Immerse yourself in the luxuriously-appointed decor and outstanding service, relax in the holistic spa and indulge your taste buds with decadent food and fabulous wines.

Stayed 2 nights for New Year. Booked a castle room, but given a nice room on 2nd floor with a valley view. Slightly smaller than we have had before, but very nicely done, including a real christmas tree. Very nicely appointed rooms and common spaces, attentive friendly staff.

The room we had a valley view and was quite large. The only draw back was when the heating gets turned on at 4:30am the creaking of the pipes woke us up,and we were not aware that dogs are allowed in the rooms which I don't like especialy in a 5 star accomodation.
