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 renowned hotel. Carefully hidden in the grounds are 22 private, granite-built lodges of which we offer 10. These smart, stylish, comfy properties overlook 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; no children before 9am or after 5.30pm), 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, slide and swings. Supervised playroom for children under 8 (extra, available school holidays and half-terms) with arts and crafts, egg collecting and ferrets. Eight to 14 year olds can join the Bovey Rangers (school holidays only, extra) and enjoy 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 for hire. Wrapped around the hotel and lodges is a championship 18 holegolf course with driving range and pro shop; complimentary round (subject to availability, non-transferable) for all guests over 16. If you’d rather something a little quieter, roam the 275 acre estate (wellies provided). If you don’t feel like cooking, order a restaurant meal or pizza to be delivered to your lodge or book a table at the hotel’s restaurant or brasserie. The friendly hotel staff will help you arrange any activities you wish. An exceptional place to stay. Wedding licence. Maid service available (extra). Spring water. Arrival after 4pm. Two-night breaks not available.

Restricted use of hotel and children's facilities 24 to 27 December and 30 December to 1 January (brasserie, pool, spa, gym and golf still available). Hotel facilities may also occasionally be restricted at other times.

Jaystone is detached (in front of Kitty Jay, A89), with lovely views towards the lake and open moor. Spacious hall around central stone chimney breast rising from ground floor to the ceiling, with balcony (sun loungers). Utility room (washer-drier, sink). Cloakroom (loo). Double bedroom (6' zip-linked bed or twin) with view to the lake, en suite bathroom (suite, shower over bath) and door to balcony. Open tread stairs down to living room with central stone fireplace (‘living flame' gas fire), big bright pictures, TV/DVD and door to decked area (tables/chairs). Spacious open-plan kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, electric cooker) with door to same decking.

A lovely peaceful week away. The villa was just as hoped - large, peaceful, well equipped and in a lovely position in the grounds of Bovey Castle (overlooking the lake). Intending to book again for 2018!
