Make an Okehampton holiday cottage your home away from home

Nestled in the centre of Devon, Okehampton is a lovely rural town rich with natural beauty. Its proximity to Dartmoor National Park makes it a hit with nature enthusiasts and its temperate weather makes it a great place to visit year round. Okehampton is a quiet place where city dwellers can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, relax and enjoy their surroundings. In addition to the national park, the town is also close to a number of historical attractions and other places of cultural interest.

Things to do in Okehampton

Okehampton is a dream destination for nature enthusiasts as the region is full of lovely walking and biking trails, which take visitors through a series of rolling green pastures, ancient rock formations and historic sites. The town of Okehampton itself is a quiet, rural destination with everything from 16th century pubs to modern cafes and restaurants.

-Dartmoor National Park: Most holiday rentals in Okehampton are just a few kilometres north of Dartmoor National Park, which is full of amazing sights and activities. Hiking, walking and biking trails are open throughout the year and reveal the surrounding landscape in all its beauty. Scattered throughout the park are the ruins of castles and estates built centuries ago. It is also not uncommon to spot deer, cattle or small mammals in the region.

-Okehampton Castle: Once the largest castle in Devon, Okehampton Castle is now mostly in ruins, but is still a sight to behold. The scenic ruins date back almost a thousand years and sit serenely on a hill overlooking a river bed. The nearby river is an ideal place for a picnic or to begin a walk around the region.

-Finch Foundry: The Finch Foundry is the last working water-powered forge in all of England. Now maintained by the National Trust, it is located in the tiny village of Sticklepath just a short distance from Okehampton holiday homes. The foundry offers a firsthand glimpse into what life was like for 19th century English villagers. In the 19th century, this foundry would have been a key component of the village, where farmers could make the tools they needed for survival.

Arrived in the dark, wind and rain but Kim and Bernard's directions were very good. Well appointed property, spotlessly clean and well main-maintained, with everything you would need for a short (or longer!) stay, including dishwasher and washing machine. Drawing the curtains the following morning revealed views over Dartmoor and a small garden complete with bird feeders and loads of birds and a pond with a visiting heron! Ideal location for exploring Dartmoor and the local area with Tavistock and Okehampton a short drive away. Kim and Bernard were very friendly hosts living in the adjoining property. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting peace and tranquility to unwind and recharge batteries.

The lodge was immaculately clean, comfortable and cosy with the addition of the log burner. The outside seating area and the fact that there are only 3 lodges on the site allowed us to relax and take in the stunning views of Dartmoor from the privacy of our lodge. The coast only being a 30 min drive made it a prefect location for a base camp to go exploring. The hosts were very helpful - at the end of the phone at all times. We will most definitely be returning. Thanks to Andrew and family for ensuring that our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. If you're looking for a relaxing break would definitely recommend a stay here! Thanks, Charlie & Girls :-)

We were warmly welcomed by Jean & her husband & the cream tea was the icing on the cake! The annex had gr8 views, gr8 shower, crisp white bedding & fluffy soft towels- all the things that tick my boxes. If we could want for anything more it would have been a king size bed to accommodate my hubbys 6ft stature however this isn't a criticism as we knew the bed was a standard double. The complimentary logs really made you feel welcome when using the log burner which wasn't needed to keep you warm as the central heating did its job well. Wld def stay again & recommend to others.
