About this location

The Devon region

2 Delves Cottages is located in a beautiful green setting next to the gateway to the moors - Bovey Tracey and the famous Haytor is but a "stones throw." There is easy access to major towns and routes as the A38, Devon Expressway is less than a mile away. The actual house is completely surrounded by trees hidden away and off the beaten track providing a relaxing and an "unwinding" environment.

Newton Abbot

The local shops are less then 5 minutes away whilst a Tesco Express and Spar shop are located in the nearby town of Bovey Tracey, 5minutes away where a farmers market is held fortnightly. There is an outdoor heated swimming pool (open summer season only), local tourist information office in the main town car park.

The English Rivera, Torquay/Paington/Brixham are around 40mins away with a whole host of attractions and areas of outstanding natural beauty prevail: hidden valleys and rivers, wide open vistas across the moors, countryside and genuine uncanned fresh air.
