Win a luxury Devon break
UK golf venues don’t come much classier than Bovey Castle, a delightful Devon retreat in 275 acres on the edge of wild and remote Dartmoor. It’s a magical place and with a slice of luck you and a partner can experience it courtesy of a three-night stay in a Grand State room along with two rounds of golf per person and two dinners (both with a house bottle of wine) in the two on-site eateries.
Bovey Castle is a five-star venue which provides the ultimate golfing escape. It’s a haven of peace and tranquility and the stunning estate bristles with character. The magnificent mansion house is the centre of attention, housing the majority of the 60 superbly appointed rooms as well as the main restaurant, a superb indoor pool and spa and the casual Smith’s Brasserie diner.
You can also stay in one of 22 stunning on-site self-catering country lodges, which have everything you need, including a spacious bedroom and bathroom on each floor plus an open-plan kitchen with all mod cons. You also get full use of the adjacent hotel’s facilities But Bovey’s big attraction is its mature, undulating parkland course designed by JF Abercromby and boasting a terrific variety of holes. It opens with a short par-4 downhiller with the River Bovey running across the front of the first green. The snaking watercourse
features on several holes and twice comes into play on the stroke index one par-4 7th. You’ll also love the thrill and challenge provided by the par-3 3rd played through an avenue of trees to a near-island green.
There are wooded walks on the estate and with a national park on the doorstep, it’s a hiker’s paradise.
The stay is subject to availability and must be taken and booked within six months but excludes school and Bank holidays, Valentine’s weekend and over the Christmas and New Year period. For more details call 01647 445000 or visit www.boveycastle.com
