Bovey Castle, Chagford

Close to the picturesque and sought-after market town of Chagford is the majestic Bovey Castle, tucked away on the gorgeous Dartmoor National Park. Both on-site scrumptious restaurants are AA Rosette awarded and there is an enticing Elan Spa with bespoke treatments so you can really treat yourself or someone special during your getaway to Devon. 

Boasting 275 acres of stunning countryside, you can enjoy this beautiful scenery whilst you take a dip in the hotel’s deliciously-warm swimming pool in the Orangery. Treat yourself to one of the many tempting spa packages from facials to wellness therapies and body massages to make up and beauty treatments. A day guest can have access to the swimming pool, sauna, steam room, gym, tennis courts and estate walk so even if you don’t indulge yourself to a massage or treatment you can still have a day of relaxation and explore this beautiful property’s estate walk.

You are spoilt for choice with two delicious on-site restaurants – experience fine dining at the 3AA Rosette awarded ‘Great Western’ or for something for relaxed and modern sample the delicious menu at the 1AA Rosette awarded ‘Smith’s Brassier’. Both establishments pride themselves on using fresh and local produced straight from the moor so you can guarantee the taste of perfection – that matched with talented Head Chef Mark Budd’s unique and expert technique, you are in for a wonderful and delicious treat at Bovey Castle.

For those wanting to arrange something extra special such as a birthday party or a family gathering you can experience one of Bovey’s Castles private dining rooms. Work alongside the head chef and sommelier to create your unique and bespoke menu; have a choice of a three-course fine dining feast, a selection of delicate and scrumptious snacks or even a mouth-watering barbeque with a view on the South Terrace.

Bovey Castle offers a traditional cream tea every afternoon. There is a selection of plenty of sweet treats and freshly prepared sandwiches as tradition, but also a nice twist of delicious sausage rolls in crisps push pastry. Of course, what is a cream tea without a warm plain or fruit scone with Devon clotted cream and strawberry preserved – make it an extra special one with a glass of champagne or let the little one’s feel all grown-up with their very own tray from the children’s afternoon tea menu.

Bovey Castle is a gorgeous hotel with fine décor and a charming atmosphere, plus alongside its ravishing two restaurants, deluxe spa with pool, sauna and gym and its pretty outdoor pleasure gardens, this beautiful establishment is a must-visit during your stay in Dartmoor, Devon.
