Okehampton is a great place for the outdoor enthusiast. Known as the walking centre of Devon, visitors can discover the wild side of Dartmoor on foot or explore remote villages by bike.

There’s riding, swimming, fishing and golf. For the less active there is a Victorian shopping arcade, a museum, a lovely park for picnics and the second oldest Norman Castle in the county.
