History of the hotel
In 1890, William Henry Smith (W.H Smith, later to become Viscount Hambleden) purchased 5,000 acres of land from the Earl of Devon for £103,000. The estate consisted of several large ancient manors, including Moretonhampstead and North Bovey; almost thirty farms, extensive woodland and fishing rights on the rivers Bovey and Teign. It was his son, Frederick, who built the Manor House in a lavish neo-Elizabethan style as one of the family's numerous country retreats.
Bovey Castle is a dog-friendly hotel with dogs allowed in bedrooms, lodges, the Cathedral Room, the hotel reception area and the seated area under the main stairway. Unfortunately dogs are not permitted in the restaurants, Adam Room, Library or the Oak Bar.
Dogs are charged at £25 per dog per night, please call our team for availability. There is a maximum of 2 dogs per room.
