  • “The property was superb for my elderly mother who struggles with stairs.”

    The wet room shower was also very convenient. The owners really had thought of everything, the property was well equipped and within easy walking distance of the town centre. I would highly recommend this property.

About the property

Situated in the centre of Bovey Tracey, on the fringes of Dartmoor National Park, is Forge Place, a charming bungalow, ideally suited to a couple or small family looking to escape to the spectacular Devonshire countryside, while also being in easy reach of the south Devon coast and the vibrant city of Exeter.

Park on the driveway and make your way inside the property to discover a welcoming sitting room, with an inviting corner sofa allowing you to relax and enjoy an evening watching a film on the wall mounted Smart TV, and in good weather, open up the patio doors and take advantage of the lawn and patio garden, complete with dining area and barbecue, ideal for a spot of alfresco dining on a balmy summer's evening.

The kitchen/diner provides additional dining seating, where you can get together and plan out an itinerary for the remainder of your stay, while the kitchen offers a host of appliances to take care of all of your self-catering needs, including a washer/dryer and dishwasher.

Catch up on rest in the double bedroom, complete with ample storage for your belongings and a wall mounted TV, should you want to enjoy your favourite TV shows from the comfort of your bed, while the twin bedroom would be ideal for younger guests.

Both rooms share access to the wet room-style bathroom, designed with mobility in mind.

Discover a selection of shops, cafés and pubs within a short walk of the property, along with Mill Marsh Park, which offers a playground for children plus access to the Mill Marsh Park Path, a pleasant stroll that runs alongside the River Bovey.

Discover the National Trust's Parke, perfect for scenic walks along the river, through the orchard and surrounded by stunning countryside, with birdwatching and orienteering opportunities to be enjoyed by all.

Keen whiskey connoisseurs must pay a visit to Dartmoor Whisky Distillery, taking a guided tour to learn how the single malt beverage is produced, before getting the chance to sample some yourself!

On a warm day, take advantage of Bovey Tracey's outdoor swimming pool, or venture further afield to the south coast and the harbour town of Teignmouth, boasting a Victorian pier, diving centre and pristine sandy beach, should you prefer a day beside the sea.

The market town of Newton Abbot offers excellent shopping facilities and fascinating architecture to admire, while further afield, the cathedral city of Exeter is brimming with museums, shops, bars and restaurants set within a bustling atmosphere.

Be sure to venture into Dartmoor National Park, with a plethora of walking and cycling trails through seemingly endless countryside, encountering the open moorland and wooded valleys of East Dartmoor National Nature Reserve, as well as Becky Falls Ancient Woodland Park, where the whole family can enjoy an educational day out along with fascinating animal encounters.

Make Forge Place the base for your next unforgettable holiday in Devon.

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.
