We had to go back for the burgers 3 times because they where so amazing! It's all hand made from local produce! Love love love! Definitely worth a trip and the staff are really helpful! We turned up very late after a long journey down and they still made us food!
A great beach for children with acres of sand at low tide, shallow waters and usually calm seas. There are plenty of facilities nearby in the village. Dog restrictions apply so please check locally.
You will find lots of lovely walks in this area however this one in particular is a lovely day out. Follow the River Taw downstream from Umberleigh through beautiful Devon countryside towards Barnstaple for about eight miles. The return journey can be made by train on the Tarka railway.
South Molton offers a great base from which to explore Devon. To the north is Exmoor; heaven for those who love untamed wilderness walks.

Situated in the heart of the Devon countryside. The Heal Farm story started in the 1970s, when Anne Petch received a piglet for her 16th birthday. Now, more than 30 years on, Heal Farm is a thriving family business at the forefront of the movement to use traditional farming methods in the rearing of rare breeds. The farm's activities have now diversified to include rare breeds of lamb and beef as well as stocking non-meat products including locally reared smoked fish and wonderful traditional cheeses.
Fantastic food, I always look forward to my visits. I would recommend the sirloin steaks to anyone some of the finest i have tasted.
Well worth a visit - you will not be disappointed!

The butchers here really know thier stuff and you can get traditional cuts of beef that you won't find elsewhere - perfect for old-school Mrs Beeton recipes or for recreating classic dishes like granny used to make!
The Sunday lunch here is something to behold - meats from Devon’s best farms are the star of the show.

Set deep in the north Devon countryside, The Rosemoor estate was once the home of Lady Anne Palmer. Lady Anne developed a passion for plants when she met noted plantsman Colllingwood Ingram while recuperating from measles in Spain. Over the next 30 years, she travelled the world to collect specimens for her garden, which she gave to the Royal Horticultural Society in 1988. The estate now comprises 65 acres of land, which includes rose gardens, a winter garden, a fruit and vegetable garden, a formal garden, woodlands, and many stream and lakeside plantings, making Rosemoor an enchanting place to visit whatever the season.
Beautiful, well-managed gardens, well worth a visit whatever the season.
The garden is absolutely gorgeous and very well looked after. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the restaurant had great locally sourced food. A great day out for adults and children.
The rose collection - one of the largest in the West Country - is very impressive. In full bloom in the summer, the scent of over 2,000 flowers is quite sensational. The Rose Weekend, held in June, was very informative, with advice on growing your own, as well as walks and activities for children.
An award winning golf course that is set in richly wooded parkland with breathtaking views towards Devon's Dartmoor and Exmoor .
