Bovey Tracey, also known as 'The gateway to Dartmoor', is approximately 14 miles from Harepath Farm Barns.
It is a beautiful and welcoming market town where the winding streets and picturesque parks provide the perfect environment for relaxation. The town is home to many pubs bars, coffee shops and attractions, each designed to assist those who wish to take time out and unwind.
Worth a visit for families would be the House of Marbles. Spend an afternoon watching glass blowing, browsing their shop and sampling their delicious cakes whilst watching the children play.
For art lovers, The Devon Guild of Craftsmen is not to be missed. Devon Guild of Craftsmen is an acclaimed exhibition space for contemporary craft and design as well as a leading charity for craft education.
On the edge of the town you could stretch your legs at Parke National Trust Estate which leads onto many walks along the River Bovey and surrounding areas. At Parke you will also find Home Farm Cafe where you can refuel after your walk.
Situated within a stones throw is Haytor which has spectacular views across Dartmoor and the South Devon coast and offers good opportunities for you to experience Dartmoor’s fascinating past and the stunning wildlife and heritage within a short walk of the National Park Visitor Centre (on the road up to Haytor from Bovey Tracey we would recommend a stop at Ullacombe Farm Shop & Cafe).
