The Tarka trail is a must ‘do’ for hikers as it follows the route immortalised by author Henry Williamson who wrote of the adventures of Tarka the Otter. Henry Williamsons cottage is situated in the little village of Georgham and has been preserved exactly as the author lived in it many years ago.
The market towns of Barnstaple and Bideford are a short drive away. Barnstaple in bloom is a sight to behold, flowers in abundance out side many of the shops including butchers row and the centre piece on the island by the river is also breathtaking. The indoor market has different stalls on different days with locally produced pottery, pictures and food produce. The fudge produced in the shop in the corner by the main entrance is mouthwatering. Bideford has lots of interesting little shops some of them facing the river where if the tide is right you can watch the local boats come in or catch the ferry to Lundy Island.
