|Lying on the
River Bovey, this small town is an unofficial
gateway to Dartmoor and boasts a 19th century
watermill that has been converted into an art
and crafts complex. A perfect base for further
exploration, the town lies close to the
spectacular Becky Falls and the 370-acre
nature reserve Yarner Wood.
The local church was built by Sir William Tracey to make up for his part in the murder of Thomas Becket. A local plant nursery has the largest selection of orchid species in the UK.
