Visit Hatherleigh and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Hatherleigh, Devon, is a small town at the western extremity of the mid-Devon fertile red-soil belt. Immediately west of it begins the dreaded “cold clay”, stretching to Holsworthy and beyond, on which the farms have to be big to prosper and population is, accordingly, sparse. Basically it exists for farmers to buy their groceries, have their vehicles mended and get a drink in, and it has a cattle market. Its charm is that it is off the main tourist routes and far more attractive to outsiders than it suspects.
Few of the many thatched cottages with bulging walls in its main street climbing a hill have been titivated. Odd chimneys sprout from them. The George Hotel is l5th-century and may have begun life as a court-house. The church, glimpsed from the main street through alleys, though violently restored, has l5th-century barrel-roof timbers.
In the local rivers there is good trout and salmon fishing. And the country around, particularly to the norht, is of classical English long landscapes of rolling farmland.
