Bovey Castle Christmas Package 2020

We are awaiting confirmation of the 2021 package, so we are showing a historic package as a guide of what to expect. It's never too early to book, so enquire for 2021.

Bovey Castle Castle Hotel is idyllically set in the heart of England's Dartmoor National Park.

At Christmas, the castle is transformed into a festive hideaway. Plump armchairs nestle against tables laden with walnuts and oranges; rooms are illuminated by spectacular Christmas trees and sparkling decorations.

This is a great package for families, with activities, storytelling and a visit from Father Christmas!

What it Includes...

Christmas Eve

Arrive at Bovey Castle to a host of festive activities, including afternoon tea and cider & sloe gin making. Bovey Rangers activities and the Play Barn will be open for the children. Afternoon tea will be served in the Cathedral Room, accompanied by carol singing, followed by a storyteller for all the family. An early children’s high tea is offered in Smith’s Brasserie. Your evening includes welcome drinks and a five-course dinner.

Christmas Day

Enjoy breakfast followed by a visit from Father Christmas, who will be giving out gifts for younger guests. In the morning, enjoy the fresh air and beautiful scenery on the estate by trying out the brass-rubbing trail. The revelry begins with a drinks reception, followed by a fabulous Christmas Day lunch in The Great Western Restaurant. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the Queen’s Speech, tea and Christmas cake. An informal buffet dinner will be served in the evening.

Boxing Day

After breakfast, sign up for the golf tournament, join the castle team for a guided walk, or take part in the treasure hunt around the castle and grounds. In the afternoon, enjoy the much-loved ferret racing, which is a firm favourite, as is the ‘nearest the pin’ golf competition on the South Terrace, served with hot chocolate or mulled wine. Bovey Rangers activities are available all day and the Play Barn will be open. A savoury and sweet afternoon tea will also be served in the Cathedral Room throughout the afternoon. A storyteller will keep the children entertained, followed by high tea and a festive movie. Finish your day with a five-course Black Tie dinner in The Great Western Restaurant, followed by dancing to a live band.

27 December

Enjoy a full English breakfast before fond farewells.

Christmas breaks in a private lodge...

Take exclusive use of your own private lodge for you and your family, offered on a self-catered only basis. Luxuriously furnished with beautiful views over the estate, the lodges are a wonderful way to spend the festive holidays with friends or family. Even though you are based in the grounds, the incredible thing about a break away in one of the lodges is that you have the hotel on your doorstep and you can walk up and enjoy the magic of Bovey Castle.
