Side Trips: Travel Tips, Trends and Tools

If you weren't to the manner born, here's a good way to experience what you've been missing. England's Bovey Castle, once a viscount's private estate, has been transformed into a luxury resort that is open to the public starting April 8. The 1906 country house, 150 miles southwest of London, has 65 stately guest rooms and suites. The hotel is nestled on 368 square miles within Dartmoor National Park and offers no shortage of genteel diversions: a restored 1926 championship golf course, fly fishing, falconry, horses, lawn tennis, a boating lake, spa and acres of formal gardens. Anyone needing a brief escape from living like royalty can always slip off to the surrounding moors with a copy of "Wuthering Heights."

Bovey Castle, North Bovey, Dartmoor National Park, Devon TQ13 8RE England; 011-44-1647-445-016, fax 011-44-1647-445-020, www.boveycastle.com. From $280, double occupancy.
