Hotel & Accommodation
The hotel itself dates back to the turn of the 20th century and is surrounded by 275 acres of Dartmoor National Park. There are 64 rooms and suites divided between the extended former manor house and mews as well as 14 self-catering, three-storey granite lodges for larger groups and families. Interiors in the main house are opulent in a style befitting the English gentry, while the newly built lodges are rather more contemporary – stone floors, a neutral palette and lots of natural light.
There are two main options when it comes to dining at Bovey Castle – The Edwardian Grill is fine dining with views of the grounds, serving its signature Dartmoor Beef Menu; while the Castle Bistro is open throughout the day for sweet treats and light snacks as well as a children’s menu. Meanwhile the lounge-like Oak Room is ideal for cocktails.
