The West Country region
North Devon is a haven for great local food produce and there are a number of fabulous local markets worth a visit. South Molton market is runs every Thursday and Saturday offering a wide range of fresh produce, flowers and a mix of stalls including antiques; In Barnstaple there is a daily Pannier Market with a huge range of stalls - voted in the top ten of markets in the UK and next to Butchers Row which offers a stunning selection of fresh fish, meat, cheeses and vegetables daily along with other lovely deli products from the area.
There are hundreds of walks up on Exmoor to explore and eateries such as the excellent Tarr Stepps Inn to indulge at. The Bridge in Dulverton offers a amazing venue for lunch and a wander round the shops. On Dartmoor you can explore the magical area of Chagford and again eat at its great eateries or head to Okehampton where you will found another lovely market town and Waitrose! If you keep going you will end up in Tavistock which offers another splendid range of shops and restaurants. Walk off lunch with a hearty jaunt from Castle Drago towards Fingal Bridge and take afternoon tea alongside the river.
The Chapel is ideally located for those keen on walking with an abundance of great trails to follow including Baggy Point, Lydford Gorge, Heddon Valley and many coastal walks from Bideford to Hartland to Bude. Cycling on the Tara Trail is a great way to explore the countryside safely on a disused railway line and bike hire is available at the Puffin Billy - 5 miles away. For those with green fingers there is RHS Rosemoor to explore only 6 kms away and there are National Trust properties such as Castle Drogo, Dunsland, and Arlington Court - all of which warrant a visit.
There are local festivals that run all year round offering the chance to experience the West Country hospitality and friendliness first hand and get the chance to sample local food produce, beer and cider. There are live bands playing weekly around the area along with Morris Dancing displays, art exhibitions and popular shows and activities at the Plough Theatre.
The owners of the property will happily give you more advice about what's on during your stay.

"Somewhere & something different for us."
We usually stop out on the coast but fancied a change as we only stopped for 3 nights. Will never get tired of the Devon scenery even though a few of the roads about can test your patience. The property is set at the rear of the owners house & has only just been finished. A unique place for us indeed. Very spacious inside. A huge living room & bathroom upstairs , with a very cosy double bedroom up top as well. Downstairs has another double bedroom & large kitchen diner. Sadly just lacking a downstairs toilet at present but having spoke to the owners , this is likely to be rectified in the future. Views form within are limited due to the nature of the property with its velux windows.
Outside it has a courtyard with a table , chairs & a barbeque should the weather be favourable. But views are restricted from there.
Overall though we enjoyed our stay , which was very relaxing & peaceful & were made to feel very much at home by the owners Will & Belinda.
The property is in a decent location for those who wish to get out & about. Exmoor & Dartmoor aren't too far away a drive & neither is the North Cornwall coast. There are plenty of picture postcard villages around too & if getting the chance you should visit Iddesleigh. A very pretty place with lovely views & an old fashioned pub ,with wonderful food & beer.

"Stylish, comfortable accommodation with lovely grounds"
We were looking for somewhere comfortable and peaceful for a few days away in Devon. Yatton Court proved to be just that. The property is an annex to an old rectory that is lived in by the owners. There was a separate access driveway that brought you round to a private entrance to the holiday accommodation. The property itself has recently been renovated and is stylish, bright and fresh, with a spacious kitchen downstairs and a sprawling living room in what was once the chapel for the main house. We chose the upstairs bedroom to be near the bathroom as the second bedroom is on the ground floor. The bathroom has a stand-alone roll-top tub which was very welcome after a long day's walking. From the property you can walk across fields to a quiet lane and from there navigate the by-ways that criss-cross the area. The village is a short walk away and has a pub, which was ok but we ended up driving to others nearby to eat that were recommended by the owners. You could get by here without a car but definitely better to have one. We had a couple of runs up to the coast, once to Westward Ho (the nearest beach), the second time to Croyde beach, which is stunning. Good shops in nearby Bideford but worth the extra drive over to South Molton. All in all a great spot to unwind and relax, but plenty of distractions close at hand.
Many thanks - see you again next year!
