The West Country region

Beautiful Cornish beaches, gently rolling Devonshire hills and miles of lush English countryside make our landscape heaven for anyone who loves the great outdoors.


Tarka Country is situated in the heart of northern Devon. This area of the south west of England embraces a stunning variety of countryside, including rolling farmland, rugged coast and wild moors. Henry Williamson based his classic novel 'Tarka the Otter' on actual locations in northern Devon.

Every Tuesday the town comes to life with its flourishing market consisting of a small mammals and poultry auction, good local produce, homemade cakes, and a household auction for all your bargins and much more.

BBC's SpringWatch was filmed for a couple of years only a few miles from here and has been the location of other big TV and Film events including Jam & Jerusalem and recently Steve Spielberg's take on the novel and play 'Warhorse' by local author Michael Morpurgo.
