The Charming Town of Tavistock by Chris Green
As well as undertaking some excellent training for their dogs, guests who come to stay at Bowerland Holiday Cottages also come to experience the wild beauty of Dartmoor and its surrounding area.
Only 15 Miles from Bowerland
If you’re coming to stay with us, or are thinking about it, we highly recommend visiting a lovely little town named Tavistock during your stay, which is only about fifteen miles south of us.
Lots to offer
Despite it’s small size Tavistock has a lot to offer. The town has a wonderfully cosy feel as you walk around its ancient streets, and you get a real feel for its heritage as a stannary and market town. It is a great place to spend an afternoon shopping, with the high street full of independent and unique shops. If you’re planning to go shopping in Tavistock it’s also worth paying a visit to the Pannier Market, a large indoor market with a variety of different stalls and items.
There is also a lovely canal that passes through the centre of Tavistock, perfect to take your dog on a nice walk as you travel beside it. On the canal you will also find the wharf which hosts various bands and events. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants for a bite to eat as well.
Throughout the year the town also a few special events, such as the Goose Fair in October, the Dickensian evening in December or the Tavistock Music Fair in May. If you’re coming to stay with us during any of those periods, you’ll definitely want to check them out.
