Bovey Castle sits majestically high on the edge of the valley overlooking all that surrounds her. Below the beautifully restored Edwardian gardens, the championship golf course meanders along the valley and the burbling River Bovey sparkles and glistens as it makes its way down from the high moor. On the opposite side of the valley beyond the woods, Easdon Tor stands imperiously, glinting in the morning sunshine, a part of this ancient landscape since time began and today perhaps Englands last true wilderness. Dartmoor is truly a magical place and Bovey Castle the jewel in its crown. Every advantage has been taken of its unique setting to create a truly special resort. There is a vast array of activities available for young and old alike, so there will never be a time when you have nothing to do, unless of course that is what you want.
The bedrooms in the Castle are designed with comfort in mind. They were created as part of a great home and they retain the flexibility to meet the most demanding requirements of the Castles present day guests. Heavenly beds, delicious duvets, wonderful views through leaded panes, lofted ceilings, and family suites are all part of the Bovey Castle experience. There are modern touches as well, from flat screens televisions to high speed wireless internet access and movie channels. The house staff are constantly on hand to tend to your needs, so all you need to do is relax and unwind. Dogs are allowed on request. 20GBP charge will be applicable.

Area description
The fact is, whatever the weather or reason for your visit, theres always so much to see and do at Bovey, both on the estate and within the area. As one would expect from a property set in 400 acres and situated in the heart of the dramatically beautiful Dartmoor National Park, the list includes almost every country and sporting activity imaginable; including croquet, cricket, mountain biking, table tennis, archery, Rifle shooting, fishing, riding, ferret racing, tennis and even the more simple pleasures of beekeeping or cider making. For more adrenalin fueled activities, guests can take up the challenge of power kiting or canoeing, clay pigeon shooting or the Land Rover 4x4 off-road experience. Those wishing to take in the wonder that is Bovey at a more passive pace also wont be disappointed.

Dining

Restaurant and Oak Room
Great food and wine are very much entwined in the Bovey Castle experience. Regardless of whether one is enjoying a relaxed dish on a summer terrace or soaking in the experience of a tasting menu at high table, you will experience the same attention to detail and the same commitment to making your experience the best it possibly can be. Ingredients are constantly being reviewed, with a consistent focus on freshness and quality. Fresh fish is delivered daily from nearby Brixham, beef is sourced from native Dartmoor cattle, bred on a farm only a few miles from the estate and Lamb from Launceston on the edge of the moor. Wine as one might expect is also at the heart of the dining experience at the castle. Guests are encouraged to enjoy and experience excellent wines throughout their stay. Each day the sommelier conducts tutored wine tastings in the Castle cellars, where guests have the opportunity to experience, compare and contrast different wines and explore the very extensive.
