Bovey Castle is something of a rarity among British Country House Hotels in that it was purpose built by Great Western Railways in the 1930’s as a holiday resort destination. The architectural details and period features of the building are unmistakably those of a manor house however the layout of the corridors, accommodation and guest areas are elegantly configured as you would expect from a purpose-built hotel.
