About the location


Witheridge 3.8 miles; Tiverton 9 miles; South Molton 11 miles; Barnstaple 22 miles.

The small village of Rackenford is ringed by farms, and agriculture is still the largest single source of employment. Unlike so many small villages, there is still a school, a village shop, a traditional village local The Stag Inn and a social club, providing a strong community spirit. You can discover Village Day on Rackenford Common, the November 5th bonfire, the Garden Club's spring and autumn shows to name just a few. A truly great village with a vibrant community!
