Bovey Tracey Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Dartmoor & South West Devon...

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.
