Brief Description

Bovey Castle is a lavish neo-Elizabethan mansion built in 1906-7 by Delmar Blow for WFD Smith, later the second Viscount Hambledon. The house is comparable to Castle Drogo in scale, but without the sparkle of Lutyens. It was extended in the 1930s. There is a restrained garden front magnificently set above terraces overlooking the lake and river. The site is now an hotel.
