Strelna Coach House is on a quiet road on the outskirts of Bovey Tracey, known as the "Gateway to Dartmoor". It's five minutes from the landmark peak of Haytor for those who enjoy a challenging hike before breakfast! The market town has winding streets with many listed buildings housing local businesses, coffee spots, bars and shops. The fascinating House of Marbles and Dartmoor Whiskey Distillery are just down the road, along with the 19th century water mill housing the Devon Guild of Craftsmen. The area is popular for walking and cycling in Dartmoor National Park, home to many sheep, wild ponies and birds of prey. Enjoy afternoon tea in the time-warp villages of Chagford and Widecombe-in-the-Moor or visit National Trust Castle Drogo and pretty Lydford Gorge.
