About the neighbourhood
Holsworthy is a lovely rural market town, it has one of the few remaining cattle markets in the South West this happens each Wednesday, as well as the cattle market there is a Street Market in the town square. In July each year we have a week of events and a Historic event called 'The Pretty Maid Ceremony.' Holsworthy is in a part of the country known as Ruby Country, named after the famous Ruby Red Cattle, the landscape with its rolling hills and sleepy villages is truly beautiful. Available in Holsworthy is sports centre and swimming pool, just a couple of miles away is Holsworthy golf course, Horse riding is also available in Holsworthy, nearby Fishing can be found at Tamar Lakes and Roadford Lakes as well as other watersports and activities, other fishing is available just outside Ho...
Getting around
Probably the best way to see the sights in this area is a car. However the countryside is beautiful and is great for walking and cycling. Exeter is an hour away and has an Airport and Major Rail Station, Barnstaple also has a Rail Station. Regular Buses run to and from Holsworthy from Exeter, Barnstaple and Bude.
