Tarka the Otter is a fictional character whose adventures around North Devon’s Rivers Taw and Torridge are described in a novel by Henry Williamson – Tarka the Otter: His Joyful Water-Life and Death in the Country of the Two Rivers. The Tarka Trail explores a few of the journeys taken by this much-loved character. From Exmoor to Meeth, it passes through deep, wooded valleys and swathes of farmland, and along the banks of sweeping estuaries and sandy shores. The Tarka Trail is one of the country’s longest traffic-free walking and cycling paths, making it perfect for visitors who want to discover the mudflats, salt marshes, rivers, coast, combes and meadows of North Devon.
