    To the north of the Dartmoor National Park, in the folds of the rolling countryside to the south of the market town of Barnstaple, lies the heartland of Devon. This sparsely populated area is the setting for some of the most beautiful of English countryside, towns and villages.

    Things to do in the Devonshire Heartland
    The Devonshire Heartland is particularly well endowed with fine natural history. For example, the central area of the district, near to the town of Chulmleigh, has an especially rich variety of grassland, attracting Curlews and the Marsh Fritillary butterfly, whilst the ancient Saxon copses and hedgerows are still home to dormice, Barn owls and the rare Brown Hairstreak butterfly.

    For the more intrepid visitor, there are plenty of opportunities to take part in more energetic pursuits, including clay pigeon shooting, surfing, quad biking and paintballing.

    Top Destinations
    Chulmleigh - First settled by the Saxons, the town still celebrates its historic past with its ancient architecture, including cob, thatch and Devon stone buildings. Cob is a building material fashioned from natural clay soil mixed with straw to make a breathing, yet durable structure, which will support the heavy local thatch roofing. The local Devon stone results in mellow-looking buildings, which were often constructed by the richest individuals in the parish. The local parish church is on a grander scale than many of its counterparts in neighbouring villages; as with many such ecclesiastical buildings, the source of local wealth from the wool trade was reflected in the size of the local church.

    Great Torrington – An ancient settlement, Great Torrington is unusually situated on an inland cliff top, with steep drops down to the River Torridge below. The town played a strategic role in the English Civil War, with a battle in 1646, which effectively marked the end of the Royalist resistance in the West Country. In addition to a small local history museum in the town centre, the largest selection of barometers in the world is housed in a collection located just outside Great Torrington.

    Rosemoor – The site of an important RHS property and grounds, the extensive rose garden at Rosemoor has now been enhanced by the Society, with the addition of other horticultural attractions, giving it an even greater appeal to gardening enthusiasts; the grounds now include wonderful herbaceous borders, a potager, herb and cottage gardens, a plantsman’s garden, a Winter garden, and extensive stream and lakeside planting, as well as Mediterranean and tropical areas.

    Oakhampton – Another Saxon settlement, Oakhampton was first established at a strategic crossroads, and still retains its Saxon parish church, which now stands half a mile from the modern town. The remains of the largest castle in Devon overlook the town; Oakhampton Castle dates back to Norman times, and its dramatically spooky ruins sit in an outstandingly picturesque setting, amidst a wooded spur above the River Okement.

    Dulverton – Considered by some to be the southern gateway to the Exmoor National Park, Dulverton is a popular tourist town, situated in a beautiful wooded area at the foot of the Barle Valley, near to the confluence of the rivers Barle and Exe. On the River Barle itself, the famous Tarr Steps are a designated grade 1 listed building; this prehistoric clapper bridge is thought to date from 1,000 BC, and is constructed entirely from mammoth-sized slabs of stone. A number of medieval bridges also cross the rivers nearby. Two Iron Age hill forts, Oldberry Castle and Mounsey Castle, are also within sight of the town.

    Copplestone – This small mid-Devon village is the site of a decorated Saxon granite cross, which is thought to date from the 10th century. Coppleston Station is on the Tarka Line, which links Barnstaple with Exeter, and the single-track railway line divides the village.
