Make a holiday cottage in North Bovey your home away from home

North Bovey is situated in the middle of the northeastern quadrant of Dartmoor. A delightful little village, boasting a population of no more than 300 people, North Bovey's heyday was during the 14th and 15th centuries as a relatively prosperous tin-mining village. Staying true to the idyllic nature of its history, the village has remained relatively unaltered since the turn of the 20th century, although farms and houses have been renovated to include all modern conveniences. With its selection of North Bovey holiday cottages, HomeAway offers accommodation for all party sizes and price points.

Holiday cottages in North Bovey are the perfect fit for a quiet and calming getaway in a pastoral village. Smack dab in the middle of Dartmoor, North Bovey enjoys easy access to all of the national park’s treasures and the last castle built in England, Castle Drogo. Amenities, such as Wi-Fi, gardens, lake-front views and even tennis courts, offer the convenience of home alongside the extravagance of a holiday. Ranging from £305 - £965 per week, North Bovey holiday homes are priced slightly higher than accommodation options in similar-sized villages like nearby Lustleigh rentals.

Things to do

-Lakes: North Bovey holiday cottages have access to nearby Fernworthy Lake. Fishermen can spend days angling for brown trout (permits available onsite). Non-fishers can take a stroll around the lake, go bird watching, or have a picnic. There's also a handicap accessible trail, with benches and information en route.

-Outdoor activities: A stay at North Bovey is the opportunity to visit Fernworthy Stone Circle. Occupying a clearing about half a mile west of Fernworthy Lake, this ancient Bronze Age stone circle exhibits 27 granite slabs, three stone rows and a couple of stone cairns. Nearby is the Stone Lane Gardens, famous for its collections of birch and alder trees. The five-acre arboretum offers a mixture of grassy open slopes and shady woodland with streams and bogs.

-Family attractions: There is plenty to keep all ages occupied on a North Bovey holiday. There’s Chagford swimming pool, a unique river-fed pool, warmed by solar covers. Operating from May to September, the pool opens in the afternoon after the morning sun has warmed the water. There’s a paddling pool for young children, and for adults, a small café serving refreshments. Another family fun venture is the Miniature Pony Centre. Home to miniature ponies, small donkeys and an array of other wonderful animals, a full programme of free hands-on activities and displays is available every day. Children aged between three and ten can take a pony ride, and each rider is awarded with a rosette.

-Museums: North Bovey holiday cottages are close to a number of museums including the Museum of Dartmoor Life in Okehampton, and Dartmoor Prison Museum in Princetown. The House of Marbles is located in Bovey Tracey where visitors can explore the 4,000 year history of glass, and learn how glass is made, watching glass-makers at work from an elevated view platform. It’s fun to step back in time and rummage through the collection of board games and marble games from the early 1600s. Holiday accommodation in Bovey Tracey is another excellent choice in this area and also close to these museums.

We absolutely loved the cottage and grounds. We were two families and 4 children. Great facilities!!

4 of 5
We were really impressed with the cottage and facilities. The cottage was spacious, comfortable, very clean, yet cosy and well stocked with everything you would need to entertain/or just holiday. The patio and BBQ were in a pretty garden area and of course the girls loved the indoor swimming pool. The games room was well used by them too. We had great days out horse riding on Dartmoor, a visit to Plymouth and fishing & crabbing in Brixham. It was our first time booking a cottage and this property certainly made our experience a positive one. The only comment would be for families with young children. There are lovely walks nearby but I wouldn't suggest walking from the cottage as there is no pavement and the roads are narrow. However that's a small comment for families only and we would definitely go back. We can't finish without commenting on the owners gorgeous dog Tilly who we were happy to have in the cottage as the girls loved her.
