Many scenic walks can be enjoyed on North Devon self-catering holidays in Parracombe. The Devon village of Parracombe lies in the Heddon Valley, in Exmoor National Park. With a population of less than 300, this rural community is perfect for visitors seeking a peaceful base from which to explore the area. In the heart of the village, near the banks of the River Heddon, the Fox and Goose is an atmospheric pub serving Exmoor ales and delicious food prepared with the finest local ingredients. Nearby, on Ley’s Lane, Jeremy’s Books has a fascinating Exmoor maps and literature collection. Exploring the narrow lanes running into the village centre from your holiday cottage in Parracombe, you will notice graceful St Petrock’s Church, a listed building dating from the 13th century. There are several other historic sites to look out for, including a pair of Iron Age hill forts, Bronze Age barrows and the remains of a Norman motte and bailey castle.
