Fabulous 8.8 From 90 reviews

Bovey Castle, Newton Abbot
Bovey Castle, Hunter
This is a remarkable property. The estate of news publisher W H Smith, I believe. Converted to a hotel in the early 1920's or so. The building itself is just incredible. Justifies Bovey "Castle" name, for sure. The restaurants were great. The grounds were incredible. We don't golf, but the course looked pretty nice. We hiked their local trail to the nearby village of North Bovey. Nice walk. Nice town.

Charming Dartmoor Manor with a golf course
This was my wife's first trip to Devon and she truly fell in love with this beautiful stately manor in Dartmoor. The hotel is charming, the staff extremely friendly and the food from breakfast to dinner was excellent. Being close to Christmas the ambience and Christmas decorations and trees added additional charm to an already charming locale. Walking around the estate is truly beautiful with a very quaint golf course on the property. We can't wait to come back and stay here again. They are busy upgrading their televisions in the room which are sub standard, but that is fixable. Strongly recommend Bovey Castle!

Very Good8.0
Romantic and remote
ALL of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The dinner we had in the dining room was STELLAR. We would definitely recommend the Beef Wellington!! The grounds were beautiful and peaceful, and the ground floors were well-kept and so Britishly elegant. The rooms do need some renovating, peeling paint, old scrunched up carpeting, etc. I would still recommend a visit.

Awesome but investment required.
The accommodation itself was stunning but internally tired and requiring new carpets and just some tlc. For the price we paid we expected a more quality finish.

Luxury English Manor House.
Stunning property. I had not grasped just what this place had until I wandered the building and walked the grounds. The ground floor public rooms and bar are beautiful with log fires. The ground floor bistro was very nice with a big sit-around fireplace. It was 2.0 degrees when we were there so much appreciated. Well worth staying a few days to fully enjoy.
