Located in the heart of Dartmoor National Park in Devon, the 5 Red Star Bovey Castle rests in 275 acres of beautiful countryside and rolling valleys.

First opened as a hotel and golf resort in 1930 by Great Western Railways, the luxury castle hotel boasts 60 fabulous bedrooms, 22 self-catering country lodges nestled in the grounds, not to mention two refurbished restaurants, the Elan Spa and a 18 hole championship golf course.

Bovey Castle contacted 3D Virtual Solutions after we had scanned one of their other hotels in the Eden group; Mallory Court. Bovey Castle itself spans a large estate and a few separate 3D scans were required so that they could have one specific for each space.

This included the main house itself, with beautiful wooden detailing, a stunning double height Cathedral room and of course the in-house parrot, Beaky! Whilst scanning we even encountered an eagle in reception (with handler!) as part of the Falconry experience!

We also scanned their conference spaces, meeting rooms and wedding set-up, and their separate beautiful lodges. These lodges are in the grounds of their estate, and they are totally stunning with cosy fireplaces, open plan kitchens and even a terrace overlooking the lake.

We absolutely loved our time scanning Bovey Castle, we’re just waiting for an excuse to go back and stay again!

…Only next time we’ll take the office dogs, Poppy and Bailey as Bovey Castle is completely dog friendly- we definitely approve!
