BOVEY CASTLE, North Bovey, Dartmoor, Devon

THE PAST:

North Bovey Manor House - which, in 2003 was re-named Bovey Castle - was built by Frederick Smith, the son of William Henry Smith, who transformed his grandfather’s newspaper distribution and railway bookstall business into the nationwide high-street retailer: W.H. Smith. (Although often referred to as Viscount Hambleden, he in fact never held this title, although upon his death in 1891, his widow was made Viscountess Hambleden in his honour.)

In 1890, William Henry bought the 5,000-acre estate on which the house was built from the Earl of Devon, for £103,000. It included extensive woodland, some 30 farms and several ancient manors including North Bovey and Moretonhampstead. The lavish new house which Frederick built, in neo-Elizabethan style, featured a banqueting hall with minstrel's gallery, a Jacobean-style staircase, an oak-panelled dining room and an Adam drawing room. It was to become one of the family’s many country retreats and when they made a (rare) visit, local villagers would turn out to watch their arrival by train, on which they had a private coach and also a box-car for their horses. At Moretonhampstead, they would switch to their fleet of carriages or later motor cars, for the final stage of the journey.

During World War I, the house became a convalescent home for officers.

On Frederick’s death in 1928, his estate – which consisted of the entire ordinary shareholding in WH Smith, as well his many properties – attracted £1million in death duties. To meet that bill, North Bovey Manor House and the estate were sold at auction. The purchasers - Great Western Railway – converted it to a hotel and golf course, which opened in 1930. Between 1935 and 1936, 17 more bedrooms were added, along with a cocktail bar, a dining room and courts for squash and badminton. The property attracted some famous guests, including von Ribbentrop - who, under Hitler, served as Ambassador to the Court of St James and later Minister for Foreign Affairs. He brought with him his wife and a large contingent of servants and guards, and took over an entire floor to accommodate them.

After World War II - during which it was used as a military hospital - the property was returned to Great Western Railway, and re-opened as a hotel. In 1991, it was acquired and expanded by new owners, who placed much emphasis on the golf course, which soon became known as one of England's finest.

The year 2003 brought the change of name to Bovey Castle. The property has, since then, again been expanded with the addition of 22 lodges, a spa and pool. Further refurbishment was undertaken in 2008.

In June of 2014, the Bovey Castle estate was acquired by luxury boutique hotel operator Eden Hotel Collection - winners of the ‘AA Small Hotel Group of the Year’ 2014-2015 - which plans to spend some £2million on restoring the hotel and estate to its former glory. It is one of eight hotels in The Eden Hotel Collection, all of which feature on HotelsThatWereNot.com - use the search box above to see them listed.

THE PRESENT:

Today, Bovey Castle is a luxury destination that’s also unpretentious, relaxed and indulgent. It combines a 64-bedroom hotel rich in history, 14 contemporary 3-bedroom self-catering lodges, an excellent spa, an 18-hole championship golf course, and a resort desk offering a comprehensive range of activity and leisure options. The phrase ‘something for everyone’ is much over-used in the travel and hospitality industries, but for Bovey Castle, it’s an accurate definition.

THE PLACE FOR YOU?

Yes, if you would like a luxury break at the heart of Dartmoor National Park. Yes, if you’re looking for a good holiday base – catered or self-catering - from which to discover other Devon delights, from its moors to its shores. Yes, too, for an indulgent girlie (or golf widows?) spa getaway.

Bovey Castle is also great for a family escape, with fun for all ages and pets welcome, plus services to ensure that parents enjoy a break, too. All facilities needed for baby-care are on hand, and evening baby-sitting services can be arranged in advance. The hotel works with the Little Concierge Company, from whom infants’ essentials, such as nappies, milk, food and toiletries can be pre-ordered to await your arrival.

As well, during school holidays and half-term, opposite the main hotel and within the courtyard, The Den's caring, qualified staff offer an exciting range of activities - such as stone painting, candle decorating, clay work, mask making, storytime, puzzles, games and imaginative play for 3- to 7-year-olds (and under-4s when accompanied and supervised by a parent or babysitter aged 16 or over) during two daily sessions from 10 am to 1pm, and from 2pm to 7pm. There is a charge of £15 per hour per activity session, and £15 per hour for free play sessions. Pre-booking is strongly advised.
Please use the Make an Enquiry button below to check availability during your stay.

And, again during school holidays and half-term, for children aged 7 to 14, Bovey Rangers provides supervised activity sessions which include survival skills, archery, fishing, 4 x 4 off-road experience, bird-box making and more. Charged at £35 per session, these can be pre-booked or signed-up for at reception on a daily basis.
