Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Bovey Tracey is a small, friendly semi-rural town on the edge of Dartmoor, and our house is on the edge of town, in a quiet residential location on a farm lane. It is about a 15 minute walk to the shops and local amenities. Bovey has a good selection of food shops, including 2 small supermarkets, a deli, a butchers, a greengrocers, Post Office, a pharmacy and doctors, and is home to the Devon Guild of Craftsmen. There are 3 pubs in town, as well as numerous cafes and tearooms serving light lunches and Devon cream teas! During the summer an outdoor swimming pool is open, and there are also tennis courts, two play parks, cycle paths and very easy access to the wealth of tourist attractions that Devon has to offer. Walking and outdoor activities abound, with Dartmoor a 5 minute drive away. The National Trust estate of Parke can be accessed straight from the house, and offers lots of pretty walks along the river and a super café. Bovey is well placed within Devon to explore the whole area

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Bovey Tracey is situated in the middle of Devon, making it a great base for exploring all the region has to offer. Dartmoor is on the doorstep, with lots of outdoor activities, pretty villages and ancient history to discover. The beautiful beaches of South Devon are 40 mins away by car. The cities of Exeter and Plymouth are 25-40 mins drive, with shops, museums, restaurants, theatres and so on. The world famous Eden Project makes a great day out, being 1.5 hours away, and the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth is well worth a visit. Devon is a farming area with great produce, and there are lots of wonderful restaurants to choose from. For families there are the theme parks of Crealy and Woodlands, Paignton zoo, Splashdown water park, Babington model village in Torquay. Devon is one of the most popular UK tourist destinations, with an abundance of things to do, see www..visitdevon.co.uk for more details. We have had a couple of 'staycations', and found something new to do each day.
