Why Stay At Bovey Castle

Sprawling English manor on impeccably groomed grounds in the heart of arcadian Dartmoor National Park.

The Scoop

Built in 1906 as a lavish neo-Elizabethan private residence with high ceilings, stuccoes and wood-paneled walls on 275 rural acres, Bovey Castle embodies the typical English country getaway. Activities include golfing, fly-fishing, archery, horseback riding and clay pigeon shooting. The castle's bright, cozy rooms are furnished in bucolic chic, but don't lack for modern touches such as flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi access. Need to recharge your batteries? The on-site spa's unique SUNDÃRI concept created by Christy Turlington (yes, the supermodel) is based on Ayurvedic treatments using products rooted in age-old Indian healing methods. Notably, a range of services is offered for kids 12 and up. You may also opt to take a dip in the large Art Deco-style swimming pool housed in the Orangery, which overlooks the sun deck and River Bovey. Despite the dignified surroundings, the estate expressly welcomes families with children and offers a staffed well-equipped playroom; outdoor adventures like rock climbing and raft building plus the world's only LEGO room service. Upon returning from the day's adventures, shed those tweeds and wellies for dinner at The Edwardian and dress up for a refined culinary experience. The restaurant is decorated with hand-painted chinoiserie wall coverings and bathed in candlelight.

Insider Tips

Ever wanted to emulate Tom Cruise in Cocktail? The hotel's resident mixologist teaches you about the history and creation of famous mixed drinks and invites you behind the Oak Bar to concoct one of your own. (£30 per person.)

Do as the British do and order an Afternoon Cream Tea—the Devonshire specialty comes with scones, clotted cream and jam. Seating is limited so make sure to pre-book.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Exeter International Airport (EXT) which is approximately 24 miles from the castle. Anticipate about 40 minutes of travel time.
