Five-star country hotel stay in Dartmoor National Park - includes breakfast, plus optional dinner credit and a spa discount

In a scenic valley on the edge of Dartmoor, Bovey Castle is a fantastic monument to turn of the century grandeur. The design is executed in Elizabethan style and the emphasis is on giving you an insight into the lifestyle of the old English upper classes.

Gazing out over the great rugged bracken-covered wilderness of Dartmoor beyond, there's a sense of immense scale. High ornate ceilings and vast roaring fires are your setting for enjoying similarly expansive afternoon teas whilst observing the landscape through majestic panoramic windows.  

Bovey Castle boasts a tranquil spa with a wide array of individually tailored treatments which perfectly complement the serenity of the area. There is also a gym and a stunning Art Deco swimming pool with lovely views out over the terrace and River Bovey.

The list of outdoor activities available is almost endless, and includes archery, clay pigeon shooting, hot air ballooning, mountain biking and fly fishing. Attend a sloe gin-making (and drinking!) session or try your hand at Crolf, the Bovey Castle's very own eccentric new sport. There's also a championship 18-hole golf course.
