8 reasons to holiday in Umberleigh

  1. Some of the most picturesque North Devon views are in and around Umberleigh. The village’s medieval arched bridge has provided a safe crossing place for centuries. It makes a fantastic subject for a photo and, if you stop in its centre, you’ll have far-reaching views up and down the River Taw.
  2. Umberleigh is on the Tarka Line, the scenic railway that has linked Barnstaple and Exeter since 1854. It is a fantastic way to enjoy the views if you don’t want to walk or cycle, or if the weather is wet. The traffic-free Tarka Trail starts in Barnstaple and is ideal for both walking and cycling. There is a bike hire company at Barnstaple Train station, Tarka Bikes, to make it even easier to enjoy this famous route.
  3. There is a safe paddle point on the river, just under the bridge on the right side bank as you face downstream. It is a good spot to launch your kayak and canoe.
  4. The River Taw at Umberleigh is an excellent spot for salmon and Sea Trout fishing, with the season running from March to September. Fly fishing is legal all season, but spinning is only possible until 31st March. Fishing permits are for sale at the Post Office.
  5. Devon’s country pubs are fantastic, and Umberleigh is fortunate to have several within easy reach. Two pubs favoured by locals for the quality of their food and choice of local ales are The Golden Lion and The Old George, both of which are two miles south of the centre of the village and easy to reach on foot, by car or on a bicycle. Two miles north in Chittlehampton is the popular Bell pub, or head east to Torrington and the Duke of York Inn.
  6. If you or your partner has a hobby that’s got slightly out of control, then you will sympathise with Tim Isaac, whose father’s collection of tanks, weapons and war memorabilia grew so large that he turned it into the Cobbaton Combat Collection. Tim and his family care for an enormous array of items ranging from the Boer War to the First Gulf War, some of which have received a second lease of life in films and battle re-enactments. The museum also has a shop, cafe and picnic area.
  7. Why walk alone when you can walk with a llama? The owners of Watertown Llamas have been breeding these woolly walking-buddies since 2004 and offer two-hour llama treks between April and October. It’s ideal for those whose kids roll their eyes at the prospect of a walk with parents, and a unique and memorable way to see the Devon countryside.
  8. King Athelstan built an elegant manor house and chapel in Umberleigh in the early 900s, using it as his royal residence and place of worship. Sadly, little remains apart from one wall of the chapel, which is now part of a farm building on a privately owned property. However, the Medieval monuments from the chapel were saved and moved to St Mary’s Church in nearby Atherington, which is a beautiful building dating from 1202.
It’s always the right time for a holiday in North Devon, and with somewhere as lovely to stay as Umberleigh, there's every reason to plan your visit now.
