Bovey Castle

9.6 Excellent (4 reviews)

The sumptuous surroundings and breathtaking architecture of Bovey Castle set the scene for an unashamedly indulgent experience. Romantics may prefer to stay in the castle, however for groups, there are private contemporary lodges set in the hotel grounds. Either way, the Elan spa is the perfect sanctuary for encouraging rest and relaxation with a touch of glamour, with its luxury ESPA treatments and gorgeous art deco swimming pool overlooking the River Bovey.

Meanwhile, the spa uses product house ESPA in their treatments. There are bespoke spa experiences available that echo the tranquility and therapeutic flow of the nearby River Dart.

The hotel itself dates back to the turn of the 20th century and is surrounded by 275 acres of Dartmoor National Park, but as of 2015 has had a fresh refurbishment. There are 59 rooms and suites divided between the extended former manor house and mews as well as 22 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 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 3 AA star Great Western restaurant is fine dining with views of the grounds and locally sourced dishes; while Smith’s Brasserie is open throughout the day for classic British informal dining, including light snacks and a children’s menu. Meanwhile the Oak Bar is ideal for cocktails.
