Winkleigh’s location, near the centre of Devon, has helped it to keep a low profile, and it remains largely untouched by tourism. In the wonderfully unspoiled countryside around the village, it’s still possible to walk along country lanes for miles, surrounded by flowers and birdsong, without seeing another soul. This particularly tranquil area of the county is a paradise for horse-riding, wildlife-watching and fishing. The area is dotted with pretty villages and market towns, such as Hatherleigh, Chulmleigh, Witheridge and Okehampton, many of which hold regular markets, where you can pick up fresh, high-quality local produce from local farms. Cider enthusiasts on self-catering holidays in Winkleigh won’t want to miss Sam’s Cider, on Hatherleigh Road, where the county’s best-loved refreshment can be sampled.

Winkleigh holiday cottages are perfectly located for exploring both Exmoor and Dartmoor, where ancient wooded valleys, windswept moorland and magnificent historic sites await discovery. Drive northwest from the village and you’ll soon reach the rugged north Devon and Cornwall coasts, home to lovely beaches, quiet, rocky coves and breathtaking clifftop walks. Sandymouth, Widemouth and the charming resort of Bude all offer long, sandy beaches and some of the UK's best surfing waves.
