You’ll find Bovey Tracey perched on the edge of the dramatic beauty of Dartmoor, and an ideal base if you want to explore the outstanding natural landscape of South Devon and the moorlands. Known as the gateway to Dartmoor, Bovey Tracey is a charming and historic place to stay, with a strong rural heritage.
Taking its name from the river Bovey, the town is an established Saxon settlement, with its second name coming from the de Tracey family who ruled the area after the Norman Conquest. Bovey Tracey was the scene of a major battle during the English Civil War, which ended in victory for Cromwell’s troops. Their names live on today with the Cromwell Arms pub and a ruined priory arch also named after Cromwell.
