Bovey Tracey

The village itself is built of cob and granite and is generally known as one of the gateways to Dartmoor because of its geographical positioning to the Dartmoor National Park. The village dates back to Saxon times and was named so because of its proximity to the River Bovey and the link to a Norman family named “de Tracey”. This river meanders through the lower end of the town and to stroll alongside and absorb its beauty is highly recommended.
