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), gymsteam roomsaunaspa (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; complimentary round (subject to availability, non-transferable) for all guests over 16. For something a little quieter, there's the 275 acre estate to roam (wellies provided). If you don’t feel like cooking, book a table at the hotel’s restaurant or brasserie. The friendly hotel staff will help you arrange any activities you wish. 

Restricted use of hotel and children's facilities 2 March, 5 and 6 July, 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.

We really enjoyed having our own lodge while having use of the hotel facilities too. I understand the lodges are starting to be refurbished which is good as they are starting to look a bit shabby in places now.
