  • "GLOCCAMAURA Is a beautiful place to stay."

    As well as lovely accommodation it has a wonderful outside area which is completely enclosed so suitable for families with young children and furry friends. Jo and Max, the owners, are fantastic and always available for any queries. We have stayed in this area of Devon previously however will not look anywhere else now for repeat visits as GLOCCAMAURA is perfect for our family holidays.

  • "This was our second stay here, and once again we all thoroughly adored it."

    The spacious layout is great for socialising and cooking. The outside space with seating, dining and hotub ticks all the boxes, and the lawn is great for games. Easy access to the town and many attractions along with the stunning Moor on your doorstep.

  • "I am sorry but this is supposed to be pet friendly but apart from a small garden the only other walk is the drive."

    To take you dog for a walk you have to drive unless you like to walk single lane roads. The hot tub is under power probably not maintained properly. the tv in the front room is on its last legs. the property itself is not clean there are cobwebs everywhere they have been in place for a long time as they are covered in dust. the sofa if you lift the cushions well that has not been cleaned for months. They do not even move them to clean under them, the bathroom floor is in poor condition very near ready to replace, the cabinet in the bathroom has not been cleaned for a long time. For what is supposed to be luxury accommodation has slowly been left to deteriorate. I would not go back or recommend it to anyone. If this sounds unfair then you are looking at what it should be as we saw it first a lovely property but the longer you are there the more you see that has not been maintained or cleaned.

    Thank for you taking the time to leave feedback for Gloccamaura, Pet friendly on Sykes does mean that the property accepts pets, the garden is a nice size & there are several lovely walks for our guests to take nearby the property. We check the hot tub daily & change the water and produce a thorough clean of the hot tub every changeover. We have spoken with our housekeeper to produce a more deep clean when cleaning the property, we do apologise for this. Thank you again. Property Owner

  • "Cottage as described."

    Bigger than expected. But very clean and comfortable for our family . We had a very wet week it rained everyday So we couldn’t really use the hot tub or the garden . Plenty of things to do and see in the area . The books and games came in very handy . I would definitely come and stay again . ( but in the summer ) Only suggestion I would make is to extend the patio area for the hot tub so you can walk around it and a cover of some sort so it can still be used even if the weather doesn’t cooperate on your holiday.

  • "Fabulous property."

    Had everything you could need, very well equipped and comfortable. The location is fabulous, peaceful countryside with the moors on your doorstep and a short drive to the coast. The owners and their family couldn’t have been more helpful. We’re already trying to work out when we can go back.

    It was a home from home…they had thought of everything we could possibly need from kitchen equipment, pet care items to games and books etc… for our entertainment! The hot tub was a welcome extra! It was in a great location for visits to Dartmoor and the coast! Perfect for our 3 generation family get together, we would definitely recommend Gloccamaura!

  • "Plenty of rooms and space for big families."

    Hot tub was nice a hot on arrival with a hamper! Tvs had lots of channels, comfy beds and WiFi for the kids. Kitchen is like home from home. With added bonus of washing machine if longer stays. You have you only section of heaven as this is a lodge with its own drive with plenty of parking. It has high fences and its own garden. Prefect for walking families and dog owners. Its 6 minutes drive from Becky Falls and there are beautiful walks close by. Shops are a short drive., A beautiful place to stay! We would recommend this to all!!

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.
