About Bovey Castle

Bovey Castle in Devon is history, excitement, glamour and adventure. Where else can you wear your Hunter wellies at 8am, golf spikes at 3pm and Manolo Blahniks for dinner? But while guests are offered luxury and indulgence, this is not a stuffy hotel where you can't sit on the furniture or let your kids enjoy themselves. Bovey Castle is a place where you can live out your dreams, then put your feet up.

Why do guests choose to stay at Bovey Castle? Well, it's definitely because of the luxuriously appointed décor, attention to detail and outstanding service. It might also be to make the most of the championship PGA golf course or indulge in a treatment or two in the ESPA spa. Perhaps it's the vast array of activities available to experience or the wonderful choice of dining options. Of course the stunning location in Devon and views of the dramatic and beautiful Dartmoor National Park play a part, but it's all these elements together that make Bovey Castle so unique and will draw you back time after time...'

‘Dining at Bovey Castle

Great Western Restaurant is just a little bit special. We’re not in the market for stuffy dining where you feel like you need to whisper behind your napkin. Great Western Restaurant is relaxed and comfortable, yet upscale and classy. We call it ‘exclusive dining’ actually, purely because it’s an experience you won’t find anywhere else in the South West.

Our roots are firmly planted in classical cookery, recalling the glamour of the restaurant’s Art Deco origins and echoes of a bygone era. They say the first bite is with the eye, so from the very start you are in for a treat as beautifully presented dishes, using locally sourced ingredients, are placed at your fingertips.


The ambience lends itself well to dapper tailoring and a fancy frock so feel free to glam up and feel special for an evening of splendid food and wine.

Image the best pubs in the land, You’ll be thinking countryside views, roaring fires, a welcoming atmosphere, cosy seating and delicious aromas drifting from the kitchen. Got an image in your head? Well Smith’s Brasserie is that, but better.

Relaxed and inviting, bang on trend yet unpretentious and most certainly classic British dining at its best. Smith’s is the kind of place where you can dress up and make it special with a  glass of Champagne or dress it down and bring the kids for a family lunch after a day out on the resort.

You can spend some ‘me time’ curled up with a good book and hot chocolate in front of the fire pit or some ‘we time’ catching up over cocktails.


We don’t stand on ceremony here and we don’t want you to either so just chill out and prepare to do some serious relaxing in stylish surroundings.’
