House of Marbles is a splendid place to visit in Bovey Tracey, just off the A38 on the outskirts of Dartmoor.
With no charge for admission and free parking, hours can be spent watching the many fantastical marble runs in action at House of Marbles. Seek out new and exciting treats in the gift, game and homeware shop.
It is a unique site with plenty for all ages and the whole family to see.
Dogs are welcome in all areas of the site except the restaurant (with the exception of guide dogs), although dog owners can take refreshments in the garden seating area weather permitting. Stay for a bite to eat in the licensed Old Pottery Restaurant, open for breakfast, lunch with choices from the Chef’s specials board, or afternoon tea. There’s outdoor seating for warmer months and a secluded children’s play frame, and this is also where you’ll hunt down the huge floating marble in the games garden.
Explore the museums, learn about the history of pottery and view the bottle kilns that are still standing today. Be amused by the spiffing games of old, ponder the many generations who’ve played with the antique marbles on display and catch a glimpse of the history of glass before watching it being crafted in the onsite working glassworks.
Don’t miss a visit to this dog-friendly treasure on the edge moors.
Open: Monday to Saturday from 9 am – 5 pm, Sunday 10 am – 5 pm.
