Bovey Castle: A Weekend Retreat In The Heart Of Dartmoor
Wedding Ideas take a weekend retreat to Bovey Castle, Devon to indulge in casual country pursuits, culinary comforts inside a cosy country estate that will wow an intimate or lavish wedding party year-round!
“From the south-facing panoramic views of our Junior Suite, rising with the early sun was the perfect weekend wake up for us! Even after an indulgent evening of cocktails in the Oak Bar, followed by 1930’s glamour in The Great Western Restaurant!”
Dating back to the 1900’s, the original neo-elizabethan architectural influences and distinct hunting lodge interiors were preserved like a time capsule. From the Jacobean staircase to whimsical castle windows and carved stone fires, rooms at the heart of the castle evoked the scene of a Hogwarts velvet-clad common room, which was all the more magical fresh out of the winter elements!
Set within the estates’ championship 18-hole golf course which has maintained national recognition, country pursuits are an intrinsic part of the Bovey experience. On horseback or hike, off-road buggy or fishing boat, additional to your stay, guests can benefit from a wealth of lazy outdoor thrills that showcase the brilliance of Bovey’s rural beauty. Cap off the day at a more therapeutic pace in Bovey’s Elan Spa. Here you will discover ultimate serenity and a modern sanctuary championing products of the world’s finest spas, ESPA.
Educate your tastebuds to the culinary artistry of the castle’s two unique restaurants and feel completely indulged behind one of 60 beautifully furnished and generous sized suites; their award-winning hospitality doesn’t stop here…
275 acres of Dartmoor National Park will provide both expansive yet intimate backdrops for your wedding – set in the summer house on the lake or alternatively inside the castle for a lavish party!
