North Bovey

North Bovey - a truly chocolate box village in the heart of Dartmoor. 

Any photo of North Bovey is worthy of calendar status. Watching the swallows weaving in and out of the trees, just above ground level on the village green in the late afternoon will be a lasting memory for me. Do visit St. John the Baptist church. With it's magnificent arched vaulted ceiling and a 15th century carved screen.

In summer you might find sheep in the churchyard,the country way of keeping the grass down. Walk along this same road to the river Bovey and indulge in a paddle in the shallow water by the picturesque walkway at the side of country meadows. Great walk of around 8 miles from the village to Manaton, through, and then eastwards to Nutcracker Rocks, on to Hunter Tor then Barne court before walking back into North Bovey. A good map will show you the route and the shorter circular walk within that walk.

The White Hart Hotel, Moretonhampstead, Dartmoor The White Hart

Say hello to Karen and the happy staff at the White Hart Hotel. They are keen to welcome you to this elegant Grade II listed building at this important crossroads on the moor. Dating back as far as 1639 when it was a coaching Inn, it has a range of very comfortable bedrooms, no two the same. I especially like the large reception lounge, which is a great place for locals to drop in for a quality coffee. The menu has recently brought up to date and diners can enjoy a local jazz band here some Sunday lunchtimes.
