Teigngrace Meadow provides stunning views of South Devon
Teigngrace Meadow for great views of South Devon
A fascinating 'new' landscape created from the diggings of nearby clay quarries. Birds, butterflies and wildflowers jostle for room amongst its meadowland and steep-sided slopes. The Wray Valley Trail traffic-free path runs through the reserve making this a great place to visit by bike, horse or on foot.
Take a tour of our Teigngrace Meadow nature reserve in the company of naturalist and TV presenter Nick Baker...
This is a fascinating new Devon Wildlife Trust nature reserve. At present it lacks the signage and visitor information that we like to provide. This will change in the future but in the meantime you are free to explore its mix of meadows, riverbank and great views.

Wildlife to look out for includes: green-winged orchids, marbled white and dingy skipper butterflies, meadow pipits and skylarks. Walk to the top of the nature reserve's hill for wonderful views to Dartmoor, the sea and Bovey Tracey.
This nature reserve was formed from nearby clay quarries. Teigngrace is surrounded by the signs of this industry.
Perfect by horse, bike or shanks' pony
The best way to visit Teigngrace Meadow is on foot, by bike or horse. The Wray Valley Trail (traffic-free) runs through the reserve. Heading south-east from Bovey Tracey cross the A38 on a pedestrian footbridge, Teigngrace Meadow is immediately on your right (west).
