Latest reviews | Events in Winkleigh | 10 Places to Stay

Winkleigh is a charming Devonshire village that dates back to Saxon times, home to fourteen hundred people. There is a delightful Village Square surrounded by white cottages and a 12th Century Church which makes an interesting interlude. Artists will happily linger to create their next masterpiece, lovers of the great outdoors will be spoilt with the countryside walks on offer where Mother Natureís beauty is unfurled like a precious carpet. If a round or two is wanted why not tee off at Chulmleigh Golf Course where 18 holes will test the hardiest of players as the eye is drawn to the far off views of Dartmoor. Or if the thought of vines basking on the southern slopes of the Yeo River and a chance to sample a glass or two sounds tempting, then Down St Mary Vineyard may just be the answer. Barometer World offers an intriguing insight into the world of weather predictors and is home to some unusual exhibits, or there is always the skill displayed at Finch Foundry which has demonstrations that give a true insight into a 19th Century Forge. Or for a link with the past Okehampton Castle stands high above a river and conjures evocative thoughts of times long past.
