Holsworthy

The market town of Holsworthy is surrounded by rolling Devon hills that are grazed by woolly sheep and the odd stray Dartmoor pony.
The market town of Holsworthy is surrounded by rolling Devon hills that are grazed by woolly sheep and the odd stray Dartmoor pony. The market square (more of an elongated triangle in truth) is surrounded by butchers, bakers, pubs and small supermarkets. The Pannier Market and W.I. stalls on Wednesdays are the social hub for local gossip while farmers exchange tales at the thriving cattle and livestock market on Thursdays.

Centrally located between Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moor, holiday cottages in Holsworthy are ideal for walkers and outdoor types, while the sandy beaches of Bude and Widemouth Bay are close enough to beckon bathers and surfers. Holsworthy Museum is a great place to learn about rural life. St Peter's Fair in early July is well worth attending to see the crowning of the Pretty Maid, ale tasting, fun fair, live music and the Furry Dance around the streets of the town.

The Ruby Trail, named after the local Ruby Red cattle, is just one of the excellent walking trails in the area and the Tarka Trail offers flat cycling from Meeth to Ilfracombe for the truly energetic.
