Bovey Tracey 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 restaurants, bars, coffee shops and attractions, each designed to assist those who wish to take time out and unwind.
The town's creative side, both historic and contemporary, can be seen in numerous shops and attractions across the town, including the House of Marbles and the internationally-renowned Devon Guild of Craftsmen, based in the 19th century water mill on the river, while the annual Contemporary Craft Festival is an event not to be missed.
Bovey Tracey gets its name from the river that flows through the westerly edge of the town and the de Tracey family who ruled over the area following the Norman Conquest. Its rich past can be revealed through stories and antiquities at the local Heritage Centre and with more than 100 listed buildings and architectural features to be found in the town.

From the fortnightly farmers market, and the fayre provided across each year by a host of contemporary craft markets, to the towns spot on the annual cycling Tour of Britain, there is much to see and do for those from nearby or far away.
It is Bovey’s location on the fringes of one of the UK’s largest national parks that provides much of its scenic charm. Just a few miles from the famous Haytor, Bovey Tracey is proud to be recognised by many as the gateway to Dartmoor; a landscape full of natural beauty, wildlife, and adventure.
