A Splash of Magic with
Bovey Castle
Merry Christmas from all of us here at Eden!
December is our favourite time at the hotels and we can’t wait to deck the halls and get the mulled
wine simmering. The aroma of roaring fires mingling with the fresh smell of pine from the Christmas
trees is really quite magical and we’re keen to get the celebrations started.
Everyone knows that Christmas is all about the food, and food has always been at the heart of our
hotels. Our eight award-winning chefs across the collection spend most of the year dreaming up
even more indulgent ways of spoiling our guests with their Christmas menus and this year looks to
be no exception.
We invite you to join us for Christmas and New Year breaks, festive events and pampering spa
treatments, not to mention the happy thought of our teams plying you with excellent Champagne,
wine and fabulous festive food.
We look forward to welcoming you and sharing the festive season with you.
From all at the Eden family x

Christmas at The Castle
There is no place like Bovey Castle to experience the magic of a country house Christmas.
The hotel is transformed into a festive hideaway for December. Plump armchairs nestle against tables laden with walnuts and oranges,
rooms are illuminated by spectacular Christmas trees and sparkling decorations.
New Year’s Eve brims with the decadent glamour and excitement that surrounds the last night of the year, drawing to a dramatic close with
fireworks over the estate and flowing champagne.
In addition to our fabulous breaks, why not come to Bovey in the run up to Christmas for your office Christmas party, festive afternoon tea,
December dining in Smith’s Brasserie and Great Western Restaurant, not to mention the Bovey Castle Christmas Fair!
The hotel is idyllically situated in the heart of Dartmoor National Park, so take the opportunity to explore the area and visit local festive
events in the surrounding towns and villages whilst you’re with us.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year from everyone at Bovey Castle.
