  • “Overall an enjoyable holiday in a lovely locationThere were a few fairly minor issues; I had to unload the dishwasher On arrival and also rewash some of the items which hadn’t washed properly.”

    The microwave had some dried on food so obviously hadn’t been cleaned and checked. One of the chopping boards was dirty. One of the frying pans was unusable as the base was loose. The roasting tin and baking tray were past their best and need replacing. The toilet seat in the middle bathroom was cracked. I felt the whole kitchen wasn’t up to the standard expected in a property of that price range. We did tell the hotel reception about these issues but nothing was done. I suppose we should ...

    The microwave had some dried on food so obviously hadn’t been cleaned and checked. One of the chopping boards was dirty. One of the frying pans was unusable as the base was loose. The roasting tin and baking tray were past their best and need replacing. The toilet seat in the middle bathroom was cracked. I felt the whole kitchen wasn’t up to the standard expected in a property of that price range. We did tell the hotel reception about these issues but nothing was done. I suppose we should have kept on at them but to be honest we had better things to do than keep going to reception every day and also it shouldn’t have been necessary. Also it might be an idea to mention that the property isn’t that suitable for people who have mobility problems. My husband has slight mobility problems and managed but the front entrance isn’t easy and there are 3 flights of open tread wooden stairs.

The property

2 miles from North Bovey, in a lovely setting, is Bovey Castle, built in 1907 as a country seat for the heir to the WH Smith empire and now a luxury hotel.

Hidden in the grounds are 22 private, granite-built lodges of which we offer 10.

These smart, stylish, comfy lodges look over the Edwardian gardens, lake and tennis courts; parking is a 5 minute walk from the lodges (unloading/loading closer).

All the hotel facilities are yours to enjoy, including indoor heated swimming pool (65' x 19'6" x 4'6" deep; children welcome between 9am and 5.30pm when accompanied by an adult), gym, steam room, sauna, spa (beauty treatments) and restaurants.

Outside are hard and grass tennis courts (lessons available), croquet lawn (seasonal) and children's climbing frame, trampoline, slide and swings.

Supervised playroom for children under 8 (extra, available school holidays and half-terms) with arts and crafts, egg collecting and ferrets; 8 to 14 year olds can join the Bovey Rangers (school holidays only, extra) for activities ranging from rock climbing to survival skills.

Optional activities for adults include archery, rifle shooting, fly fishing, falconry (daily display), riding, clay pigeon shooting and cider and sloe gin making.

Mountain bikes available, by arrangement (extra).

Wrapped around the hotel and lodges is a championship 18 hole golf course with driving range and pro shop.

For something a little quieter, there's the 275 acre estate to roam (wellies provided).
