About the location
Tiverton 4 miles.
Situated in the beautiful wooded Exe Valley to the north of Tiverton, the small rural village of Washfield provides a quiet retreat for the discerning holidaymaker. There are plenty of footpaths, fly fishing in the glorious clear waters of the River Exe and natural wildlife in the area, plus there are several National Trust stately homes and gardens within easy reach, including Knightshayes Court, a striking gothic mansion with extensive grounds. Tiverton, a large town just four miles away offers some interesting places in amongst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, including Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life, which is one of the largest social history museums in the south west. Washfield is located only 10 miles from the rolling wild green hills of Exmoor, where you will find stags, streams and breathtaking scenery, along with the town of Dulverton and Dunster village. This is a perfect base for touring rural inland Devon, often missed by tourists heading for the coast.
