The Devon region
Devons River Country: Devon�s middle. This is farmers� Devon. You come here to be amongst them: to walk and admire their beautiful, rich-soiled, hilly and wooded farmland and enjoy their excellent, proper pubs in usually hill-top, compact, unspoilt villages; and to fish for trout and perhaps salmon in the deep wooded and very beautiful valleys of the rivers Torridge, Taw, Tamar and Exe especially and for trout in reservoirs. Great, magnetic views of Dartmoor and Exmoor from most hill-tops, and it�s an easy drive to both. But don�t think a daily trip to the sea will be a doddle.
Tiverton is the main town (you can go barging on its canal); Crediton, in its red-soil vale, Torrington, where glass is blown, and South Molton are the others. All have proper, individual, useful, and, in some cases unusual, shops, for the locals firstly. Cider is made at Winkleigh, and it�s a good place for lunch. Hatherleigh is good for several things, including its market.
Roadford Lake: spectacular 730-acre reservoir and country park in a beautiful, sparsely populated conservation area. Big watersports centre: boats, kayaks and windsurf boards for hire (courses/instruction available); trout fishing; forest cycle track; archery, high ropes, climbing wall. Visitors' centre/caf� from which various walks (good birdwatching; disabled facilities), 3 miles; birdwatching hides, 1; footpaths and cycle routes. Germansweek (church), 1 mile; shops and pubs, 5. The sea/beaches of north Cornwall (Bude, Boscastle), 20.
