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.
