Going down the stairs there is a quirky rope bannister to the lower-ground floor, where there is a marvellous double bedroom with storage to make yourself feel at home, a large bathroom with the choice of an indulging bath or a fresh shower, and a utility room with laundry facilities.

Outside there is decked area with furniture so you can enjoy a glass of wine under the stars.

Bovey Tracey is a stunning town nestled on the River Bovey and is a foodie town of sorts, with a regular farmers market to visit as well as delis selling locally sourced produce and drinks, adding the perfect ingredients to your self-catered cooking.

Pick up a special souvenir to remember your holiday when browsing the shops and stalls in the Riverside Mill, run by the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, it showcases the work of local artists and crafts people.

The town also offers a selection of shops, pubs, takeaways and cafés along with the stunning Mill Marsh Park and the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery which offers popular guided tours.

Known as "The Gateway to the Moor", the town is situated just outside the Dartmoor National Park which provides seemingly endless walking and cycling paths along with incredible scenery, as well as the stunning Becky Falls which is one of Devon's top beauty spots with its animal shows, waterfall, gift shop and café.

Visit the ancient and historic market town of Totnes, around a 30-minute drive away, where you can find a diverse range of small and independent retailers, an Elizabethan market every Tuesday morning complete with traders in traditional Elizabethan costumes, and an array of eateries and restaurants focused around organic and local produce.

Spend time exploring the South Hams coastline, one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline found in the UK spanning from Torbay to Plymouth, home to the likes of Blue-Flag award-winning Blackpool Sands, Slapton Sands and the popular Paignton Beach, amongst many more secluded coves and bays to explore.

Closer to home is the National Trust’s Parke house and grounds providing a lovely spot for local strolls and host to a Parkrun every Saturday, while Bovey is also a big cycling hub with its own dedicated and contemporary café called Café 360, the perfect spot to finish a scenic cycle ride.

Further attractions within easy reach include Babbacombe Model Village, Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves, the medieval Torre Abbey and the beautiful city of Exeter, offering wonderful days out for all tastes.

For a truly perfect trip to Devon, choose the fashionable 7A Fore Street.

About the location


Newton Abbott 6.5 miles; Teigmouth 10 miles; Exeter 15 miles

Nestled in the valley of the River Bovey is this stunning little town known as "The Gateway to the Moor". Bovey Tracey got its name from the meandering river that flows through it, with 'Tracey' representing the family that were the lords of the manor after the Norman Conquest. It has a great history with heavy involvement in the English Civil War which resulted in the name of the town's pub "The Cromwell Arms" which serves real ale and good food. The history of the town can be discovered in the Heritage Centre, with the Dartmoor National Park Authority also nearby. Bovey Tracey offers a selection of shops and cafés along with the stunning Mill Marsh Park and the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery which offers guided tours. The town comes just outside of the Dartmoor National Park which provides seemingly endless walking and cycling paths along with incredible scenery. The market town of Newton Abbot sits nearby, offering a fantastic day out with charming buildings and a good range of amenities. The beautiful city of Exeter is also within driving distance, and if a day at the seaside is what you're after then take a trip to Teignmouth.
