Golfers Crown Bovey Castle as 'The Best in the West'

In announcing the results of its Travel Awards 2016, Today’s Golfer says: “Bovey Castle guarantees the ultimate great escape on the edge of Dartmoor National park, with a gorgeous manor house hotel and a quirky course set out on hillsides and a valley bottom. Visitors can also stay in 22 three-storey country lodges within Bovey’s exquisite grounds.”


The magazine, which has more than a quarter of a million readers in the UK, asked its readers to rate golf courses across Spain, Portugal, France and across Britain.

Bovey Castle professional Richard Lewis says: “We’re delighted to win this award and the fact that it was decided by the readers themselves makes it that little bit more special. We offer an unrivalled golfing experience in the South West and that continues to make us a popular choice with players in the area and also golfers visiting Devon.”


The golf course at Bovey Castle is a challenging and beautiful 18-hole course, designed in 1926 by JF Abercromby, one of the finest British golf course designers of the last century. When the course opened in 1930, it quickly gained national acclaim for its reputation as one of the most enjoyable places to play golf.

Designed to rival its sister courses at Gleneagles and Turnberry, this course has been described as an experience of golf never to be forgotten, presenting the pure challenge of golf to professional and amateur alike. The course meanders through the hotel’s river valley estate, surrounded by idyllic landscape and challenges to meet any handicap. There is also a fully-equipped club house, driving range and golf academy.

Bovey Castle is currently promoting its Time to Golf package. This includes two rounds of golf per person, accommodation for two nights and full English breakfast costing from £548. For more information and to book, call 01647 445007 or visit www.boveycastle.com

Corporate golf days continue to be a popular way of entertaining key clients or rewarding top-performing staff and their enduring appeal is easy to understand when offered in the luxurious surroundings of this stunning hotel and its challenging course. Bovey Castle’s golf professionals are on hand to help clients to plan their bespoke corporate packages, which can be tailored to suit every company’s requirements.

The Eden Hotel Collection – the AA Small Hotel Group of the Year 2014-15 – has completed a major refurbishment of Bovey Castle as part of a renovation programme to restore the property to its former glory. The estate includes a 64-bedroom hotel, golf course, spa, country lodges and an outdoor pursuits centre.
