LOCATION North Bovey is one of Devon's most picturesque villages with a high proportion of the properties being period thatched cottages, many focused around the attractive village green.

A 16th Century church stands on one side of the green and the village hall and the Ring of Bells pub, to the other. For golf and sporting facilities "Bovey Castle" Hotel and Country Club is approximately 1 mile away.

The moorland town of Moretonhampstead is approximately 1.5 miles away with facilities including village stores, a health centre, post office, primary school and sports centre. The cathedral city of Exeter is about 16 miles away with all of the facilities and services one would expect from the major county town.
