Local Area and Places to Visit

Winkleigh, a beautiful rural village with many thatched cottages, is perfectly situated for exploring the whole of Devon and its stunningly beautiful North and South Devon coasts and into Cornwall.

Being located in the centre of Devon there are many local attractions including RHS Rosemoor Gardens, various National Trust properties including Castle Drogo, Arlington Court, Lydford Gorge, etc. For sculptors and artists we now have the fantastic Sculpture School, Bondleigh running fantastic teaching courses. To the North Coast with its many historic harbours and beaches you will find Clovelly, Westward Ho! and many more. Also Lundy Island is easily accessible by ferry from the historic market town of Bideford. To the South Coast you will find amongst others Dartmouth, Torquay, Exmouth.

For cyclists and walkers the Tarka Trail and the stunningly majestic National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor are within easy driving distance offering scenic drives and picturesque walks. Cornwall is but an hours drive and you could be seeing some of its many harbours or beaches such as Bude, Tintagel or Boscastle to name but a few or visit the Eden Project.  The quaint quintessential village of Iddesleigh, the home of Michael Morpurgo, writer of the novel War Horse and now a blockbusting Steven Spielberg film is but 4 miles away in Iddesleigh and is well worth a visit.

The fantastic wedding venues of the Fox and Hounds in Eggesford and Northcote Manor in Burrington are both within easy reach as is Winkleigh Cider factory (formerly Inch's Cider) where they brew the most wonderful Scrumpy Cider.

“What a gem of a find. We had no intention of staying in the area until we came across a friendly "local" and decided to stay the night. Room was modern and very comfortable with great views over the paddocks.Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Spent an interesting and entertaining evening meeting locals and enjoying fish and chips from a mobile vendor. Would thoroughly recommend it”

"A beautiful house that is immaculately kept. The house has wonderful vistas from all angles- but is at the top of a very steep hill! (A warning for cyclists).
There is very little to do in the village- not the problem of the owners. It really feels like you are staying in someone's house. "
