COLEBROOKE is a compact, pastoral village in the heart of a low-lying part of Devon; characterised by a gentler landscape, patches of dense broadleaf woodland and from time to time flourishing orchards. Its church is a key focal point, and famous for its connection to Henry Kingsley’s novel ‘The Recollections of Geoffrey Hamlyn’. Furthermore, it is the speculated home of the mythological ‘Uncle Tom Cobley’, a treasured character from the Devonian folk song ‘Widecombe Fair’. It is said he was an “amorous bachelor” with fiery red hair. For a delicious, freshly prepared meal The New Inn in Coleford is only half a mile away. The village of Yeoford is 2 miles southward. This has another great local pub, The Mare and Foal – with a pleasant stream-side beer garden. In addition, there is a railway station and primary school. For a greater range of facilities, the market town of Crediton is a 10-minute drive away.

DIRECTIONS – From the centre of the village take the road sign posted ‘Yeoford’ and it’s the 2nd driveway on your right.
