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.

HomeAway has a diverse selection of holiday cottages in Okehampton to choose from. They range from cosy 1 bedroom accommodation perfect for a couples retreat, to a luxury 3-5 bedroom cottage furnished to a premier standard with added amenities such as a garden and proximity to leisure facilities.

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.

The Weather in Okehampton

Okehampton enjoys some of Britain’s most temperate weather. May through October are the warmest months, with high temperatures ranging from 14 to 19°C. Winter temperatures are fairly mild and rarely touch on freezing. Whether you’re looking to relax in one of the many rural retreats or countryside cottages in Okehampton offered on HomeAway, or are using Okehampton as a springboard for exploring Dartmoor National Park, chances are the weather will cooperate with you.

Excellent accommodation - well suited to our large family.

Lovely cottage in a quaint village with plenty of good walks and a couple of good friendly pubs. Fully equipped with everything we needed for 11 guests. Highly recommended - would stay again!

A fantastic place to stay, a little gem in Devon

5 of 5
Our party was 2 couples and 1 puppy. We all had a great time and would recommend this place to anyone as it has something for everyone, and although it isn't around the corner from beaches (which are about 30 mins drive) etc, the space it has would keep children entertained for days. On arrival 'No Place' felt extremely comfy, clean and cosy and the entire cottage is decorated to a very high standard. Lynda was extremely friendly and helpful, even leaving some fresh eggs, laid on site, scones, jam and cream together with milk, tea and coffee. What a lovely welcome. About the cottage; Downstairs: You step into the porch which has tiled flooring (easy to clean if wet weather) big enough to house a puppy and her crate plus some. Even has a bodyboard and windbreak. Then through a stable type door into the carpeted lounge with Sky tv, comfortable sofas, a log fire, dvd's and games. Off the lounge: Into the kitchen which houses all the essentials, such as electric cooker, washing machine, washing up equipment, fridge, microwave, all cooking utensils including scales (if you had the urge to bake), pots and pans, plenty of plates cups and glasses it also has a wine cooler. Bedroom 1: King Size bed, the mattress it was soooo comfortable, a single bed, Wardrobe and side tables. Staircase leading to a lovely landing with bathroom, and 2nd bedroom again with a double bed, as me and b/f slept downstairs I am unable to comment but our friends were extremely comfortable. The gardens are huge and well maintained, has a swing seat, an area with a fire pit, wooded area where they have built a large tree house. Choose this cottage you really won't be disappointed.
