Bovey Castle is a relaxed and welcoming hotel, located in 275 acres of peaceful Devonshire…
Once virtually derelict, The Horse is an object lesson in pub revival, as its beautiful dining room, Mediterranean-style courtyard and stunning barn conversion testify. The chesterfield-furnished bar offers Devon-brewed real ales and ciders, and the same menu as the restaurant, which could mean antipasto to share; tapas choices; hand-rolled gourmet pizzas; or hand-made meatballs in rich tomato sauce, while the courtyard smokery is responsible for smoked pastrami, salmon and salt beef. Other choices might be moules frites; chicken Caesar salad; or chargrilled 21-day hung Dartmoor rib-eye. Local folk musicians have a sing-song on the last Monday of every month.

About the area
With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.
Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them.
Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
