Located in the heart of Dartmoor National Park in Devon, Bovey Castle rests in 275 acres of beautiful countryside and rolling valleys.
First opened as a hotel and golf resort in 1930 by Great Western Railways, our luxury castle hotel boasts 60 fabulous bedrooms, 22 self-catering country lodges nestled in the grounds, not to mention two refurbished restaurants, the Elan Spa and our award-winning 18 hole championship golf course, designed by J F Abercromby.
Why stay at Bovey?
Well, it’s definitely because of the luxurious hospitality of Bovey Castle, the attention to detail and outstanding service. It may also be to make the most of the simply glorious surroundings or to indulge in a treatment or two in the spa.
Perhaps it’s the vast array of country pursuits and activities available to experience or the wonderful choice of dining options, from afternoon tea to fine dining in the Great Western and the classic British menu in Smith’s Brasserie. The unrivalled location and views over the dramatic Dartmoor National Park play a part, but it’s all of these elements combined that make Bovey Castle Hotel such a unique destination time after time.
Well established as one of the finest luxury castle hotels and restaurants in Devon, Bovey Castle has won a host of awards, including being recognised as one of the top ten family hotels in the world by Mr & Mrs Smith and ‘England’s Best Course and Resort – West’ by Today’s Golfer Travel Awards.

Deer Park Country Hotel
With 80 acres of glorious grounds, beautiful boutique hotel bedrooms, a pretty Italian garden and a ridiculously tasty double-rosette winning restaurant, we think you’ll agree that the 18th Century Georgian mansion is a delightful bundle of wonderfulness.
Influenced by the best of British, Deer Park Country House Hotel in Honiton is the epitome of a quintessentially English Country House. We strive for excellence in everything we do, and were tickled pink to be awarded four stars this year, as well as being voted the Best Venue in The South West Tourism Awards. We love to lavish attention on all the little things that are oh-so-frequently overlooked; it’s this attention to detail that means events go without a hitch, whilst getting hitched goes with a hitch, and summer holidays in Devon are just how they should to be.
Exeter Cookery School
Relaxed, friendly and totally hands-on, you’ll find our chefs and staff super-welcoming, patiently encouraging you to concentrate on doing what you love. We believe you’re actually a better cook than you probably think you are. So, our job is to bring out what’s already in you and help you shine in the kitchen. Your job is to relax and have fun while you become a super-cook! Owners Jim and Lucy Fisher ran a successful cookery school in France for several years before returning to their Devonian roots, so you’re in a very safe set of hands.
