Okehampton

The ancient town of Okehampton is referred to as the ''Gateway to Dartmoor''. Nestled at the northern end of this spectacular national park, it''s a delightful market town full of historic charm.

Okehampton dates back to the Bronze Age, when ancient settlers set up camp on a site where the East and West Okement rivers meet. The Saxons built the first church and the Normans built Okehampton''s spectacular castle, the ruins of which are enjoyed by many today.

Much of the town''s wealth was derived from trading in tin and wool, the story of which is featured in the Museum of Dartmoor Life.

Today, elegant historic buildings line the streets, including several coaching inns and the town hall, which has a granite facade dating back to 1685. The town has many independent artisan food and crafts shops, smart tea rooms and an original Victorian glass-roofed shopping arcade.

Peaceful Simmons Park offers leisurely strolls through ornamental gardens and along the river, plus excellent sports facilities for the more energetic. Okehampton''s biggest outdoor asset is the countryside beyond. Often known as the walking capital of Dartmoor, some of Dartmoor''s best walks are within easy reach, offering stunning views of the moorland over to Exmoor on clear days. The spectacular fast flowing Lydford Gorge is also only a few miles away.

Okehampton is also a great cycling destination, with national cycle routes the Granite Way and the Dartmoor Way running through the town. Cycle hire is available locally. Alternatively, you could view Dartmoor on horseback or enjoy peace and tranquillity fishing the rivers. The picturesque North Devon coast and Cornwall are also within easy reach.

For a relaxing holiday where you decide how active you want to be, Okehampton has so much to offer. Book your perfect break today by searching for Okehampton holiday cottages.
