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 9.30am 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.

Kitty Jay is detached and the nearest to the hotel. Twelve steps (handrail) up to front door into open-plan living/dining/fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, freezer, larder fridge, electric cooker) with door to balcony (table/chairs) and lovely views to the open moor.

Kitty Jay is an extremely comfortable property in glorious surroundings. it is easy to relax in to the comfortable chairs and large beds. There is plenty to occupy the family with the pool especially being welcomed on wetter days. The staff are very friendly and helpful and obviously love dogs. This was our first holiday with our dog so it was lovely to find a place that so obviously welcomed him even down to the supply of dog towels in the lobby The staff at Helpful Holidays were also so helpful with this last minute booking and extremely prompt when e-mailing out necessary documents.
