AboutA traditional market town nestling in the northern foothills of Dartmoor, Okehampton is a great place for the outdoor enthusiast.
Known as the walking centre of Devon, visitors can discover the wild side of Dartmoor on foot or explore forgotten villages by bike. Then there's riding, swimming, fishing and golf. 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.
There is an Edwardian evening in December, and a farmers market on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month.
