Bovey Castle is a grand hotel located on a private sporting estate in Dartmoor and is one of my personal favourites, this really is a celebration of British Hospitality. Built in the early 1900’s this hotel has large open fire places, ornate furnishings, and an air of period charm and authenticity which is perhaps a rare statement. We were welcomed by a gentleman dressed in immaculate chic country attire on arrival which was a welcome sight. We were not disappointed with the service or the facilities and had a wonderful experience during our stay.

We experienced one of their Grand State Rooms, although the room is titled ‘Grand State’, it’s actually a large corner suite with a separate drawing room, bathroom, and a large bedroom. The room had a large dining table that overlooks the lawns and extensive grounds around the hotel. There is also a large sofa in a seating area so you can unwind while sipping a complimentary Sloe Gin from a cut glass decanter, which I must add is an incredibly satisfying way to spend an afternoon or evening.

"This really is a celebration of British Hospitality."

The bathroom has a roll top bath, from which you can overlook the hotels meandering driveway and a different section of their grounds as seen from the dining table. There is also a corner shower which was incredibly powerful, all of the utilities were finished to a high standard.

The hotel includes several large public drawing rooms downstairs to explore. You can enjoy sitting in front of the roaring fireplaces and admiring the architecture. Guests can also enjoy a wonderful afternoon tea experience or perhaps one of their restaurants, we visited Smith's Brasserie during our visit. The hotel also offers four wheel drive driving experiences, falcon displays, and a host of other outdoors activities to keep you entertained during your stay. Inside the hotel you will find a spa along with a large swimming pool, a small gym, steam room and a sauna for those looking to relax.

I’d recommend Bovey Castle if you're looking for a country escape with stunning views as far as the eye can see. There are plenty of activities in and outdoors, and you will be well looked after by the well dressed staff.
