  • "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.
