The West Country region
Dartmoor: "the last great wilderness in Southern England". Great rock-tors top many of its often heather-covered hills. Marvellous for walking, riding, tor-climbing, picnicking, kite-flying, pony-trekking and, if you're at all energetic, not seeing other people. Just off its edge, amid woods, valleys and farmed hills, are many pretty villages (sometimes thatched) and very lively small towns. All is protected from caravans, tents and most ugliness by being in the Dartmoor National Park.
The half of the moor north of the B3212 is the highest and wildest; no villages within it, almost no cultivation. The southern half has the most spectacular tors, best wooded river valleys, a few villages (like Widecombe, Buckland) in green-field 'oases'. The moor's eastern edge is the softest, most wooded, most popular: Chagford, Moretonhampstead, Lustleigh and Bovey Tracey are among its best villages, and the river Teign is an exceptionally beautiful river valley. The Dart(s) – two of them rise in the moor's middle and join at Dartmeet – is/are equally beautiful all the way to the sea at Dartmouth. Very lovely, too, are the valleys of the rivers Avon, Erme, Walkham and Tavy; Tavy Cleave, on the latter, is the western moor's most dramatic place. The quality of a pub can change so quickly we hesitate to recommend, but there are plenty of them; and of places to ride or pony-trek.
North Bovey: postcard-pretty village (good food pub, medieval church) with tree-shaded green in the beautiful wooded valley of the mini river Bovey, two lane-miles from the spectacular open moor around Manaton or Moretonhampstead. Bovey Castle (hotel, good restaurant, golf), about 2 miles.

"Bovey Castle Lodge. Lovely but needs a refurb"
Having stayed at Bovey Castle on about 3 previous occasions, I was pleased to see Rose Cottage (The Bovey Lodge) available to rent. First things first. The Lodge is beautiful - a fairytale looking b… More
Thank you very much for your comments. I'm very glad that you enjoyed your holiday. The lodges do offer a wonderful opportunity to be part of the Bovey Castle experience, whilst still maintaining the flexibility and extra privacy of a self-catering holiday.
I've been in contact with Bovey Castle with regard to your feedback about the interior of the lodge. They have advised that Rose Cottage has been identified by Bovey Castle Management as due for refurbishment, along with other key areas of the hotel and they hope to schedule this shortly. However, they will be investigating the maintenance issues you have highlighted immediately, to address such shortcomings for future guests. We thank you for bringing these issues to our attention.
Although they do provide a very British country house experience, Bovey Castle are an equal opportunities employer, and thus employ all their staff on the basis of their qualifications and merit.
Thank you again for your comments and we very much hope to be able to welcome you back to stay with us in the future.
