Bovey Tracey

Bovey Tracey on the south of Dartmoor. On the A38 by Trago Mills. 

Bovey Tracey is one of the main gateway towns to Dartmoor and has an interesting range of shops including a chemist, banks, 4 charity shops, deli, butchers and fresh vegetables. A pretty cob and Dartmoor-granite built town, situated on the River Bovey it is home to the internationally renowned Devon Guild of Craftsmen, based in a 19th century water mill on the river. Other local attractions include the House of Marbles glass blowing and visitor centre and the National Trust's Parke estate.  On alternate Saturday mornings, the town's Farmers Market sells local produce.  The town has 2 golf courses and an outdoor swimming pool

The Gym Bar at The Edgemoor Hotel The Gym Bar at the Edgemoor Hotel has a huge array of drinks for you to choose from. Heather, one of the owners, loves gin and as a result, has collected the widest variety of gins in probably the whole of Devon. There is also a huge range of the finest wine, beers and soft drinks for you to slurp whilst sat by the fire or playing chess with your friends. Not forgetting the wonderful garden grounds; grab a bottle of wine and share it on a bench in the garden or catch the last of the evening sun down by the on-site pottery. Pubs

Located right on the edge of Dartmoor National Park (just five minutes from the famous Haytor Rocks) but still very much in touch with civilisation, our hotel is just a 7 minute drive from the A38.

Built in 1879, The Edgemoor Hotel was once Bovey Tracey Grammar School for boys and walking around it, the history is still very much alive today.

The Edgemoor is a family run hotel and being local, independent and unique is at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves on being professional but informal.

Here at The Edgemoor Hotel, everybody is welcome.

The Cromwell Arms, Bovey Tracey The Cromwell Arms

There are 14 bedrooms at the Cromwell Arms in the heart of Bovey Tracey. One of them is a family room that can sleep up to 6, and the thing that I like is that they offer this room as "ideal for a group of people who are on a budget and don't mind sharing." What a wonderful way of putting it! Many groups of walkers are on a budget, so it's right, this is a good option. Add to that the fact that the pub offers good food, a pub quiz every Tuesday AND THAT there is also a therapy room for aromatherapy massage, reflexology and Reiki natural healing, then this looks just the place for a few nights away doesn't it?
