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.

The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need, plus there was a lovely home made cake waiting for us on arrival! There is a very good pub just 5 minutes walk away (The Rugglestone Inn) and the centre of the village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor is a 10 minute walk. The owners made us feel very welcome and gave us some good tips on where to eat and where to go walking. The garden of the cottage is very peaceful and private and the cottage itself has been finished to a very high standard. Highly recommended.

Nothing was too much trouble, a delightful grocery pack, and fresh salad from the garden we could help ourselves to! ( The Rocket was excellent!) As for the house and garden, the pictures tell as story that is 100% accurate, looking over the gardens from the decking was great especially on a sunny morning. The house is effectively brand new throughout with an amazing kitchen & two very smart bathrooms. We took our dog and the walking close to the house as great never mind the rest of Dartmoor. We walked into Chagford each morning (although quite a hill on the walk back which takes about 30mins). Chagford is delightful - All the shops that are often missing from a typical British High Street - Butcher/Deli/Bakery/Dairy plus a few more and plenty of eating places. This is a great place for Family,2 couples or as in our case bringing the parents away! And of course don't forget the dog if you have one. If you stay here you will not be disappointed.

The cottage was delightful, in a fantastic location. It was cosy, comfortable and beautifully furnished with the personal touch of handmade decor. It is a paradise for countryside lovers, with beautiful walks, wildlife, a lake, river and a play barn, all of which make it a safe haven for children. The Bloomfield family are so friendly and gave us such a warm welcome, not to mention the tasty homemade cake. We will be back to this relaxing idyll in the Teign Valley.
