Pretty market town in traditional Devon farm countryside, great for walking, cycling and exploring
The pretty market town of Holsworthy is situated in the beautiful countryside between Exmoor and Dartmoor, surrounded by green rolling hills and wooded valleys. With a number of walking, cycling and riding trails on its doorstep, Holsworthy makes a great base for exploring, or if water sports are more your thing, you’ll find the South West Lakes Trust venues nearby for sailing, kayaking and windsurfing, along with a number of coarse or trout fishing destinations too.
As the heart of the local Ruby Country (named after the famous ruby red cattle), Holsworthy’s reputation for top local produce has solid foundations in its agricultural heritage – visit the Farmers’ Market every Wednesday to sample a wide range of local produce, or try one of the local cafes, pubs or independent shops for their excellent local menus. You’ll find a vibrant and welcoming community atmosphere in Holsworthy, with many enjoyable events throughout the year – from traditional fairs and carnivals, to fun runs, agricultural shows and steam rallies.
