Seriously, who wouldn’t want to stay in an English castle? Well, I’ve found one where I would love to stay! It’s name is Bovey Castle, and it’s located Devon, nestled between Plymouth and Bristol. The Detmar Blow-designed neo-Jacobean style manor house was built for the Viscount Hambleden in 1907. The house became a golfing hotel in 1930 after being sold to the Great Western Railway.
The hotel’s resort desk can hook you up with a vast number of activities, running the gamut from the classic:archery, falconry, and horseriding to the modern: crolf (croquet meets golf,) hot air ballooning, and rock climbing. And of course, there is also an 18-hole golf course.
As for the rooms, well, there’s 64 of them. If that’s not enough privacy for you, or you have up to eight people in your party, then you can book one of the fourteen country lodges scattered throughout the property.
I could definitely see the hubbie and I spending a romantic vacation here. In the meanwhile, if any of you visit Bovey Castle, please let me know what you think. Have a great day!
