The small market town of Bovey Tracey is located on the eastern fringes of Dartmoor, offering excellent access to the wild beauty of the moor, as well as to the stunning Teign valley and coast at Dawlish and Teignmouth.
The town's winding streets, pretty parks, and range of quality independent shops, delicatessens, bars, restaurants and coffee shops make for the perfect environment to have a relaxing potter, or if you're feeling more adventurous, Dartmoor's famous Haytor is just a few miles away, for an active day outdoors immersed in nature.
As a gateway to Dartmoor, Bovey Tracey offers easy access to its distinctive granite tors left, standing since the last glacial period and rising in parts to over 2000 feet, and to a wonderful variation in landscape, from the barren remoteness of the higher moorland, to rivers rushing over granite boulders down into deep wooded valleys and traditional farms.
The town itself is home to the all-weather attraction and games museum, House of Marbles, and also the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, a converted Riverside Mill where you can watch jewellery, sculpture, prints, glass and textiles being created, and enjoy the spacious gallery, shop and Terrace Café.
A holiday cottage in Bovey Tracey provides a convenient base for exploring Dartmoor, whilst offering plenty to see and do on your doorstep in this pretty town.
