About this property

Dog-friendly Bovey Castle in Devon does it all: where else can you wear your Hunter wellies at 8am, golf spikes at 3pm and Manolo Blahniks for dinner? In other words, Bovey Castle is an elegant yet unfussy, five-star country house hotel with real character and an incredible pet and child-friendly ethos. While the interiors are exemplary of high Elizabethan style, this isn't a stuffy hotel where you can’t sit on the furniture or enjoy a drink with Fido by your side. With first-class hospitality, outstanding service and an awe-inspiring rural backdrop, Bovey Castle have plenty to offer for you and your furry friend. Guests can take advantage of the impressive championship golf course, an extensive menu of outdoor activities and unwind with an Espa treatment or two in the Elan spa.

Dine with Your Dog

Bovey Castle boasts an impressive array of dining options, from afternoon tea on the South Terrace to fine dining in the Great Western restaurant, or British Classics in the relaxed Smith’s Brasserie. Four-legged guests are welcome to recline in your room while you trial the hotel's delightful restaurants. Prefer to eat with your furry friend at your feet? Handsome hounds can join you for Afternoon Tea in the Cathedral room, or, during warmer months, you can dine on the outdoor terrace.

Bow wow factor

Has to be its dog-friendly ethos! There are always biscuits at reception and your pooch will receive a dog welcome pack, including a bowl, dog bed, treats and more!

With original furnishings and extra comfy beds pooches will be delighted to snuggle up here!

Improved lighting, comfortable oversized beds, sumptuous furnishings, separate seating areas and walk-in rain showers all combine to create a totally luxurious experience.

Dog-Friendly Nearby

As Bovey Castle is right in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, you and your furry friend will be kept very busy with many fabulous walks! However, if you fancy a dog-friendly museum visit, Moretonhampstead Motor Museum is only a short drive away. Becky Falls is also great to visit with your furry friend in the summer months, and there are dozens of scenic beaches populating the coastline where your handsome hound can run free among white sand dunes and calm waves. Mill Bay comes highly recommended, but, if you're stumped, the hotel is happy to provide walking booklets, which will help you sniff out the best local spots for scenic strolls!
