Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around North Bovey, Devon to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Dartmoor This stunning National Park has towns and villages a-plenty to explore; from brooding Princetown and picturesque Widecombe-in-the-Moor to tiny Postbridge and genteel Chagford. In between, lies a natural playground for hiking, cycling, riding, climbing and white-water kayaking.

Local Tipples When your cockles need warming after a day's adventures, walk into one of the local pubs with their friendly characters and landlords- there's nothing more authentic. With The Ring of Bells in the village, you can indulge in good food and wine with the bonus of little fresh air on your walk home.

Fore! The golf course at Bovey Castle is a challenging and beautiful 18-hole championship course, designed in 1926 by J F Abercromby, one of the finest British golf course designers of the last century.

Myth and Legend Make up a delicious picnic of homemade lemonade and cucumber sandwiches and find a secret spot by one of the many moorland lakes or waterfalls. Don't forget to listen out for the giggling of the legendary elves and pixies...

Liberty Trails One of the best ways to discover Dartmoor is on horseback. With magnificent sweeping views, huge skies and wide open spaces, Liberty Trails is perfect for seasoned riders seeking an opportunity for adventure. 

Bake Off If all that Aga cooking gets your creative juices flowing, why not expand your culinary skills at Ashburton Cookery School? With over 40 courses lead by professional chefs to choose from, they have been voted amongst the UK's top cookery schools.

Wild Swimming Peaty waters clean from the mountain make Spitchwick Common the most popular and accessible Darts swimming location.

Ancient Towns and Villages Nearby Moretonhampstead's fascinating history goes right back to Saxon times and although tin mining has now ceased in the ancient stannary town of Chagford, there is still a thriving community and olde worlde charm here too. The cathedral city of Exeter is the place for shopaholics, with all the high street names as well as lots of independent retailers.
