The village has many thatched cottages and there is an antique shop to browse around. The three village inns have great atmosphere and give a warm welcome.
The village shop and post office are very well-stocked. There is also a butcher with delicatessen counter.
The caravan park is between Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks and is ideal for walking and riding holidays. It is also central for seeing the many attractions that Devon has to offer. A golf course is five miles away and fishing is available at Stafford Moor, or for the more adventurous, Microlight lessons are available at the local airfield.
Devonshire and the Westcountry is steeped in history and legend. The lush green countryside is famous for many things including Conan Doyle's Hound of the Baskervilles, apple cider and of course clotted cream teas.
The Tarka trail is a must do for hikers as it follows the route immortalised by author Henry Williamson in the adventures of Tarka the Otter. Henry Williamson's cottage is situated in the little village of Georgham and has been preserved exactly as the author lived in it many years ago.
The market towns of Barnstaple and Bideford are a short drive away. Barnstaple in Bloom has flowers in abundance outside many of the shops including Butchers Row, and there's also an impressive centrepiece on the island by the river. The indoor market has different stalls on different days with locally produced pottery, pictures and food produce: we recommend the fudge produced in the shop in the corner by the main entrance. Bideford has lots of interesting little shops, some of them facing the river where if the tide is right you can watch the local boats come in or catch the ferry to Lundy Island.
The historic cities of Exeter and Plymouth are both worth a visit. Exeter has a cathedral, ancient buildings and excellent shopping (antiques, curios and local crafts). Plymouth, famously the Pilgrim Fathers' point of departure, is a busy naval city and fishing port to this day. Boat tours give superb views of Plymouth Ho and the aquarium is not to be missed. After all that sightseeing relax with a meal and drink at the Barbican.
Visit Rosemoor Gardens and Dartington Crystal Glass Factory.
