Where else can you wear your Hunter wellies at 8am, golf spikes at 3pm and Manolo Blahniks for dinner? However, while Bovey Castle offers luxury and indulgence, this is not a stuffy place where you can’t sit on the furniture or let your children enjoy themselves.

Immerse yourself in the luxuriously-appointed décor and outstanding service, relax in the holistic spa, experience the vast array of activities for all ages and indulge your tastebuds with decadent food and fabulous wines.

Our superb kitchen works its magic with fresh, local ingredients delivered daily from all over the area - with fish from Brixham, lamb from Launceston and finest beef from native Dartmoor cattle - to create superb dishes to delight you with an attention to detail to make them the best they can.

Candlelight, hand-painted Chinoiserie wall coverings, and immaculate service will surround you in The Edwardian Grill. The seasonally-changing menu makes the very best of the finest local ingredients, accompanied by the finest wines from our superb cellar.

Our informal Castle Bistro offers a menu throughout the day from coffee and pastries to dinner in a relaxing atmosphere.
Hidden within the Bovey Castle estate and flanked by tall hedges and herbaceous borders, the Summerhouse awaits you at the end of a perfectly-manicured lawn.

The Summerhouse combines the crisp linen and impeccable service of the hotel’s restaurant, with the unconventional elegance of dining al fresco in a private spot within the hotel grounds.

Afternoon tea is the most civilised and underrated treat of the day, and a Bovey speciality: scones and sandwiches, homemade cakes and fine teas served in china cups. This Bovey Castle favourite is best enjoyed in front of a roaring fire or, in the summer months, on the terrace overlooking the castle's gardens.

The greens at Bovey Castle are a challenging and beautiful 18-hole championship golf course, designed in 1926 by JF Abercromby, one of the finest British golf course designers of the Golden Era.

The course meanders through the castle estate, surrounded by idyllic landscape, with challenges to meet any handicap. Designed to rival its sister courses at Gleneagles and Turnberry, this course has been described as an experience of golf never to be forgotten, presenting the pure challenge of golf to professional and amateur alike.
