Luxury country hotel in Dartmoor National Park - includes breakfast, plus optional dinner credit

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 the flagship UK SUNDÃRI 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.

Outside, the list of activities available is almost endless; with instructors on hand for tennis, archery, clay pigeon shooting, game shooting, fly fishing and deer stalking. 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.

Good to know

Please note that due to the refurbishment of one of the restaurants, the spa has been relocated to two of the hotel's lodges until the middle of March.

Smith’s Brasserie is undergoing refurbishment in February and will be opening again at the beginning of March.
