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 cottage itself has everything you could possibly need, even down to a torch (which was needed but we hadn’t thought of). The location is perfect for walks on the moor and exploring further afield around Devon by car. The hosts are lovely and the addition of some essentials in the fridge along with a couple of treats made the perfect cottage even more perfect. Will definitely book again if we are heading back to Devon.

We were in Devon for our granddaughter's 8th Birthday and the property seemed perfect for our needs in terms of location and sleeping capacity. In actuality, the cottage exceeded our expectations and we quickly found that all possible needs and comforts had been anticipated and provided by the no doubt proud owner of this property. Each of the 3 bedrooms was en-suite and my wife and I were delighted to find that one of the bathrooms had a high spec walk-in shower, which was perfect for our mobility needs. No kitchen item that we could possibly need was lacking and everything about the kitchen, and indeed the entire property, was clear to see quality. Our grandchildren aged 8 and 4 found very many toys and games in the drawers and cupboards to keep them amused and the lounge TV set also had a DVD player with dozens of children's DVD's. A lovely touch, especially after a long drive down to Devon from Essex was milk in the fridge, tea/coffee in the containers.......and a still warm lemon drizzle cake on a beautiful glass stand on the kitchen table. A most remarkable amount of thought and care has gone into this property and I can assure anyone who may be considering renting this property that they most certainly would not be disappointed.
