About

A traditional market town nestling in the northern foothills of Dartmoor, Okehampton is a great place for the outdoor enthusiast.

Things to do

Known as the walking centre of Devon, visitors can discover the wild side of Dartmoor or explore forgotten villages on foot or by bike. Then there's riding, swimming, fishing and golf opportunites a plenty as well.

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.

To the north of the town are Dartmoor's two highest peaks; whilst to the south lies the National Trust gorge at Lydford - a picturesque village with its Whitelady waterfall.

Something a little different

There is an Edwardian evening in December to celebrate Christmas and a farmers market on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month.
