About the location

PARKHAM

Bideford 6 miles.

Parkham nestles in a tranquil North Devon valley, three miles from the dramatic coastline around Barnstaple Bay and a ten minute drive from the picturesque fishing village of Clovelly, famous for working donkeys, smuggling stories and ancient cottages clinging to the cliffside. Parkham has a traditional 13th century village inn with a wealth of old world charm, with oak beams, cob walls and open fires all under a traditional thatched roof. Parkham is close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and The National Trust own and manage extensive tracts of coastline along the North Devon coast including Peppercombe Valley, Worthygate and Sloo Woods. Just six miles away from Parkham is the quaint bustling town of Bideford which boasts a medieval bridge, town quay, quaint pannier market and vibrant shopping area - all well worth a visit. For the more active, several major surfing beaches, golf courses, theme parks and other attractions are nearby. The beautiful cliff-top fishing village of Clovelly is half an hour by road and the delights of Exmoor and Dartmoor can be reached in under an hour.
