The history of this area begins during the Saxon era when Bovey Tracey was established. It takes its name from the nearby River Bovey, which appeared in the Domesday Book of 1086 as “Bovi”.
Its second name, on the other hand, comes from the local de Tracey family who were lords of the manor following the Norman Conquest.
Famously, one family member, William de Tracey, was implicated for the murder of Archbishop Thomas Becket in Canterbury.
Nowadays, there are many sights to see, indeed things to experience, in this wonderful location. This, of course, includes a handful of charming Afternoon Tea Bovey Tracey Tearooms.
Why not visit one today, treating yourself to scrumptious scones, heavenly cake and dainty finger sandwiches – all washed down by a nice, warming cuppa? You’re bound to enjoy it!
