Bovey Castle Christmas Package 2022

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, followed by afternoon tea, accompanied by carol singing. An early children’s high tea is offered in Smith’s Brasserie. Your evening includes welcome drinks and a five-course dinner accompanied by a pianist.

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 Grill. Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the King'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. Family activities are available all day. A savoury and sweet afternoon tea will also be served in one of the lounges throughout the afternoon. Children will be entertained by a festive movie followed by high tea. Finish your day with a Champagne reception and a five-course black-tie dinner in The Great Western Grill, followed by a live band and dancing.

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. With 3 bedrooms, they sleep up to 8 guests (maximum 6 adults). Even though you are based in the castle grounds, the incredible thing about a breakaway in one of the lodges is that you have the Elan Spa, swimming pool, estate activities, and golf course on your doorstep.*
*The Oak Bar and lounges are not available on 24, 25, and 26 December.
