As you may know, the whole house is now available as a Holiday Let on cottages.com, and further to the recent blog where I took you on a virtual tour of the house, I thought you might enjoy hearing about some of the lovely sights and local places of interest we have in North Devon!
Black River Inn, in Black Torrington Devon EX21 5QE along, seven minutes drive away.
Hatherleigh is the nearest small town just 8 mins drive away. It has (used to have) a Tuesday morning market. It has an open all hours small co-op, and a couple of other small shops. The George pub is very nice. Find more here.
Okehampton is quite a big town, has a small ruined castle, a small museum, a big co-op, Waitrose and Lidl, garden centre, DIY places et cetera. Some nice takeaway is – it is the link for the Rajpoot and other restaurants in Okehampton (25 minutes drive away).
Cinema – New Carlton – in Okehampton
There are plenty of beaches including on the north Cornwall Coast, head for Widemouth, or Bude. About half an hour away depending on tractors on the small windy roads!
We are between Dartmoor and Exmoor. Head for Belstone on the edge of Dartmoor, just on the other side of Okehampton. Charming little village with old stone houses lots of thatch, a tea room on a Friday Saturday Sunday Monday (I think). And a nice pub called the Tors Inn. No shops. Very small village. You may see ponies, cows, and sheep wandering through the village!
An hour away –
The Highwayman Inn, near Okehampton, Britain’s most unusual pub http://www.thehighwaymaninn.net/
Dingles under cover vintage fairground
Crealy theme park, Exeter
Take pottery class 20 mins away (pre book)
Launceston – about 25 minutes away. Massive farm shop, garden centre, café and outdoor playground and Soft Play for kids.
