Bovey Castle completes first phase of £2M transformation project

The Bovey Castle unveiled its new spa, marking the completion of the first phase of its £2 million transformation project. Treatment rooms and public areas were transformed to offer a country retreat experience with an Art Deco feel, featuring black and silver décor, an open-plan waiting area with views over Dartmoor, refurbished oversized showers and a new Champagne Nail Room.

The six treatment rooms now have a dedicated space for men, a feature that is unique to country house hotels.

Bovey Castle also launched a new range of ESPA treatments for both men and women.

The spa refurbishment is part of the first phase of a £2m restoration of the country house estate, which also includes an 18-hole championship golf course, country lodges and an outdoor-pursuits center.

The Eden Hotel Collection has now renovated the entire ground floor of the hotel, also transforming the restaurant, bistro and public rooms and adding a boutique shop.

The spa, housed in the Orangery, also has an indoor Art Deco pool overlooking the sun terrace and the River Bovey, a Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. The hotel gym has Precor, cardiovascular and strength equipment.

The next stage of the Bovey Castle refurbishment program involves the renovation of the bedrooms and bathrooms in the main house and of the country lodges. There will also be further investment in the championship golf course.
