Originally known as the “Mission House” and built in 1877, Courtenay House was a gift from Cannon Courtenay to the Clewer Sisters (the Sisters of Mercy) who ran the Mission for the “Wayward Girls” of the town.
Situated in the heart of the historic town of Bovey Tracey, with views towards the heights of wild Dartmoor, Courtenay House now offers three Bed & Breakfast rooms, a Tea Room known as Pink’s Place and an Antiques Centre.
There are lawned gardens to front and back and a sunny patio where you are welcome to relax.
Courtenay House is in a central, but quiet location, set back from the road, within easy walking distance of a variety of small local shops, independent cafes, pubs and restaurants and an acclaimed Craft Centre.
Walkers and cyclists are welcome – a selection of local walks is available on request. There are lovely local walks along the nearby River Bovey into and beyond Parke – a National Trust property.
