Hope Cottage is situated right in the heart of the ancient Devon town of Bovey Tracey and is an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and all those wishing to explore Dartmoor and the glorious beaches and countryside of South Devon. For those who enjoy city life the regional capital, Exeter, and historic Plymouth with its Hoe and dockyard are not far away.
The town of Bovey Tracey is known as "The Gateway to the Moor" and is home to the Dartmoor National Park Authority's headquarters. Bovey is a relaxed, small but thriving market town with modern convenience stores, pubs, restaurants and shops. It is also home to the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, which exhibits and sells high quality local handicrafts.
