WELCOME TO
OKEHAMPTON
THE WALKING CENTRE FOR DARTMOOR

Welcome to Everything Okehampton, which is packed full with information on your local town; whether you're looking to visit, to find great local businesses or to keep up to date with news and events, we're sure to have something for you.

Situated on the northern edge of Dartmoor in Devon, Okehampton is a lovely old market town with a population of around 27,000.

 

The town is home to the wonderful, picturesque Okehampton Castle, which dates back to the Domesday Book and sits in an elevated position above beautiful woodland walks where the West Okement River runs. The Castle was first started just after the Norman Conquest, with a moat, as a Motte and Bailey castle.

 

Today Okehampton is known as one of the walking centres of Devon, with superb access to Dartmoor direct from the town, or via the surrounding villages like Belstone.

 

This northern quarter of Dartmoor is the wild side of the moor, fantastic for walking, cycling and riding. Several National Trust properties are in easy reach, Finch Foundry, Lydford Gorge and Castle Drogo are all nearby.

 

Two Castles Trail, Tarka Trail, Granite Way and the West Devon Way to Plymouth are all easily accessible from the town centre. There are guided walks from and around the town, wild swimming in the rivers, a golf course, museum, gym, swimming pool and the extremely beautiful Simmons Park in the centre of town.
