Eggesford is always worth breaking your Tarka Trail journey for

In 1854 the landowner at the Eggesford estate granted permission for a railway to be built through his land on one condition : The train had to stop there. This condition still stands and the station at Eggesford is now part of the Tarka Trail. Depending on which direction you are traveling, Eggesford station will be the beginning or end of your walk on the Tarka Trail south loop.

In the heart of Eggesford is Eggesford Forest, a large and enchanting forest linking together several woods, such as Flashdown Woods which are dominated by Douglas Fir, some dating to back to when they first planted back in 1840. The forest is full of trails and paths, ideal for a family day out or dog walk.

With a nearby Country House Hotel, a garden centre to peruse and plenty of country walks, Eggesford is worth breaking your journey for.
