TRAVEL

that extra bit of solitude away from the constant clanger of the ring tone! Bovey Castle has 63 rooms and suites and 14 private 3-bedroom lodges on the grounds. We stayed in a one bedroom suite, with views across the 1st tee of the golf course. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into the design of these suites, as they were spacious, yet cosy and with lots of natural light. Modern contemporary décor, along with sumptuous furnishings made for a comfortable stay that helped us to relax and unwind in. There are three restaurants at Bovey: the Bistro, Edwardian Grill and the fine dining Mulberry. For some reason we only managed to try lunch at the Bistro, which sadly didn’t agree with our stomachs, which meant for the second evening we had to cancel dinner at the Mulberry. So, apart from the room service menu, we didn’t really get to try out anything substantial, therefore I’ll reserve judgment on the food overall.

Service is friendly and there are plenty of staff around to cater to your every whim. However, my only reservation is that at times it is a bit slow, and could do with a bit more of a pro-active approach. Apart from that there’s not really much else to fault as the property lives up to all expectations. I will be looking forward to going back in the not too distant future as it really is a stunning property and there is much left to explore…01454 281 182
