    “The cottage was lovely however the water was scalding, no toilet rolls, no small knife or vegetable peeler.”

    The settee was so low my disabled husband had difficulty getting out of it. There was nothing in the booking info suggesting that there were steps to get into the cottage We were disappointed that on booking we were expecting the hotel to be open where we could have breakfast and the occasional meal, even in the cottage the notices said that the hotel and bar were open on certain days. Keys would not fit the bedroom doors. We had leaks under the sink and in the shower. Reported but nothing ...

About the location

BOVEY TRACEY

Newton Abbott 6.5 miles; Teigmouth 10 miles; Exeter 15 miles

Nestled in the valley of the River Bovey is this stunning little town known as "The Gateway to the Moor". Bovey Tracey got its name from the meandering river that flows through it, with 'Tracey' representing the family that were the lords of the manor after the Norman Conquest. It has a great history with heavy involvement in the English Civil War which resulted in the name of the town's pub "The Cromwell Arms" which serves real ale and good food. The history of the town can be discovered in the Heritage Centre, with the Dartmoor National Park Authority also nearby. Bovey Tracey offers a selection of shops and cafés along with the stunning Mill Marsh Park and the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery which offers guided tours. The town comes just outside of the Dartmoor National Park which provides seemingly endless walking and cycling paths along with incredible scenery. The market town of Newton Abbot sits nearby, offering a fantastic day out with charming buildings and a good range of amenities. The beautiful city of Exeter is also within driving distance, and if a day at the seaside is what you're after then take a trip to Teignmouth.
