#1 of 6 speciality lodging in Bovey Tracey

“Wonderful Stickwick Manor

I booked Stickwick Manor as the base for a friends party I was tasked with organising. We had 11 chaps travelling from London and other parts of Devon, so Stickwick was a fantastic location on the edge of the Moors to host the weekend.”


“Family Christmas – 19 travelled from various parts of the UK, New York and Hong Kong.

We booked all three properties for our group of 19 – seven teenagers and two small boys + parents, Auntie and Grandma! Teenagers were in the Farmhouse, family with 6 and 9 year old boys in the cottage and the rest in the Manor. Alison warmly welcomed us on arrival with a festive box of biscuits.”

Heather R

“Brilliant house and venue

We stayed there for our 40th wedding anniversary and my husbands 70th birthday with family and grandchildren aged 3, 2 and a half, 18 months, also 8 weeks old. There was everything you wanted that saved us from taking so much. The children loved helping to feed the animals with Alison.”
