Things to do in Bovey Tracey

Bovey Tracey gets its name from the Bovey River and the Tracey Family, who during the Norman Conquest in the 1300s, became Lords of the Manor. Bovey Tracey has a exciting and dramatic past and was once a thriving Saxon community. Today, it is a small town with a large village feel and a sense of peace and tranquillity with a gentle community spirit, where much pleasure comes from its beautiful setting. Bovey Tracey holiday rentals are in the perfect location, allowing you the freedom to explore the countryside, amble down to the town square or to simply sit back, relax and do nothing at all

-The Hound Tor and Hundatora: Hound Tor is just outside of Bovey Tracey and is a massive granite outcrop that almost looks like dogs assembled on a cliff face peering down at you. It is a stunning example of the force of Mother Nature, as the granite cliff face has been severely weathered. Hundatora is the remains of a completely abandoned medieval village that is believed to have been deserted in the 1300s. It is in close proximity to the Hound Tor, south east of it to be exact. The village was excavated during a painstaking process that took 14 years and was completed in 1975. There are 4 Dartmoor longhouses as well as some smaller barns and houses as well. Many of the dwellings show central drainage channels and there were 3 barns with corn dryers used for grain storage as well.

-The Canonteign Falls is located within the Dartmoor National Park and is a hugely popular sight for families looking for the perfect day out. Home to the highest waterfall in all of England – all 220 ft high, The Canonteign Falls is a stunning place to enjoy the fresh air and countryside with lots of little pools, and smaller waterfalls, walking paths and a secret garden and fern garden. Kids and parents can enjoy a brisk walk then relax at the restaurant and play area.

The accommodation was excellent - everything we needed - just like being at home. We have two boys aged 19 and 15 and the bunk beds were a good fit for them. It is dog friendly which is a real bonus. Lovely gesture to leave milk in fridge together with tea and coffee and also a welcome card. We met some of the bungalow owners who were very friendly and helpful especially when we needed advice on the best route to take to get to Teignmouth. Great walks to be had around the area. Would love to stay at The Palms again.
