About Bovey Castle

Bovey is such an elegant and stunning place to stay - and incredibly family friendly - it just keeps getting better!

The approach to Bovey Castle is wondrous and grand and exciting and the first view of the castle is stunning; most importantly (for us) it is a truly child-friendly hotel Bovey holds an enviable position overlooking the valley and gardens down to the River Bovey & across to Dartmoor National Park. This stunning hotel offers a range of fabulous individually decorated rooms, as well as 1 or 2 bedroom suites if more space is required. As exquisite and immaculate as everything is, be assured that you will receive the friendliest welcome from all of those at Bovey who are set to ensure that you take away the best memories of a glorious place.

Bovey Castle is a five-star stately country hotel with luxury lodges in it's grounds, in Dartmoor National Park. With 63 bedrooms and suites in Bovey Castle there really is a room style to suit all requirements. Mom, Dad, kids, grandparents, great-aunt - all will be equally delighted with their opulent surroundings and lovely views. All rooms are individual in shape, style and location and are superbly decorated. Extra beds and cots are readily available as well as interconnecting rooms for those of you with more independent children.
