Torrington and Sheepwash

In the heart of rural Devon, the historic town of Torrington offers a fabulous choice of cafes, shops, pubs and restaurants as well as the Pannier Market, the historic Black Horse Inn and The Plough Arts Centre.

Known as the Cavalier Town, Torrington played a significant role in the English Civil War and is sited on the top of an inland cliff with extraordinary views of the valley and River Torridge below.

Torrington is in a great location for exploring Devon. Take the A386 to the coast road to make the most of the Atlantic coastline. It really is one of the most changing and breath-taking coastlines in the UK. Its blue seas will make you feel a million miles away!

It boasts a wonderful selection of visitor attractions from renowned Dartington Crystal, the beautiful Royal Horticultural Society gardens at Rosemoor.

Heading inland will lead you through to the outstanding countryside of Dartmoor National Park. This area is a natural wonder with so much on offer for people to explore, and that's without mentioning the many attractions in place to entertain and showcase the area to visitors.
