Consisting of two small piles and a scattered sparse clitter Castle Tor sits just on the left hand side of the 17th fairway of Bovey Castle Golf Course. The hole itself is named Castle Tor but was also once known as Manor Tor when the venue was known as the Manor House Hotel.
The tor is on Private Land but there is a footpath crossing the course from which some of these rocks can be seen from afar. However, straying on to the golf course is strictly forbidden.
Peter de Savary transformed the hotel and golf course c2004 and it is all owned now by Sir Peter Rigby. It is an exclusive place both in terms of hotel accommodation and golf membership. This and its neighbour Little Castle Tor are normally out of bounds to the general public and can only really be properly viewed when playing golf.
