Shebbear holiday homes and self-catering accommodation
Browse our holiday cottages in Shebbear and plan your escape to rural Devon. Set in the heart of the Devonshire countryside, Shebbear is a beautiful and remote village that’s home to a truly unique celebration. On 5 November every year, residents from throughout the Torridge district gather for the ‘Turning of the Stone’, one of the oldest traditions in Northern Europe, said to protect the village from the Devil. Despite its rural setting, this fascinating village is perfectly placed for visiting the beaches of North Devon and Cornwall and discovering the Devon Heritage Coast and North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It makes a wonderful base for families, couples and groups that want to make the best of the region’s attractions before returning to a cosy and welcoming cottage away from the crowds.
A holiday in Shebbear is a delight for walkers and dog owners, with walking and cycling routes from the village. The 180-mile Tarka Trail passes close by, heading north towards Exmoor and south towards Okehampton (Meeth), from where you can venture into the Dartmoor National Park. For dramatic coastal views, the South West Coast Path runs along this entire coastline, while closer to home RHS Rosemoor is sure to enchant gardeners. Families seeking a traditional day at the seaside are spoilt for choice with Bude, Westward Ho!, Woolacombe and Instow a short trip away, while the picturesque village of Clovelly is blissfully free from traffic.
