For Christmas we had decided to ensue gifts and take ourselves away for a couple of nights to live like humans. It was a very nice present and one which came at just the right time.
We had discovered Bovey Castle on Dartmoor and decided, as it was dog-friendly and had a pool and a spa that it would do the job.
From the website it looked rather traditional and so we went with expectations of pearls and tweed and we weren’t disappointed.
A large gothic mansion with a myriad of bars, dining rooms and sitting rooms, Bovey Castle is a destination for golfers, wedding parties and wealthy types in expensive cars. We pulled up in our rented Ford Fiesta and fitted right in!
We spent two nights at the castle and filled our days exploring Dartmoor.
