Local Area

West Pitt Lakes & Lodges is perfectly positioned to explore the glorious coasts and countryside of Devon and Somerset and the wonderful moorland of Dartmoor and Exmoor.  Yet it is also readily accessible from rail and road routes to the South West.

Nearby are horse-riding, golf, walking and cycling.  Exeter and Taunton are within a 30-minute drive where there are cinemas, museums and racecourses.  The Grand Western Canal is close by with 11 miles of countryside walks and cycle path.

With a dozen pubs and restaurants in the local villages there is a wide variety of places to eat out.  Farm shops offer fresh local produce and a Devon Cream Tea.  In our local towns of Tiverton and Cullompton there are pannier markets as well as a full range of shops including larger supermarkets including Tesco (and Tesco home delivery), Morrisons and M&S Food.

Devon-produced meat and vegetables and ready prepared meals are available for delivery by The Local Food Company, or local organic vegetable boxes from Riverford Organic Farm.

There are historic houses castles and gardens including National Trust properties such as Killerton House and Knightshayes Court.  Attractions including Bicton Park, Escot Park, Diggerland, Crealy Adventure Park and steam railways are just a few of the choices for days out locally.  See our suggested Days Out.

Exmouth is our nearest beach (30 minutes’ drive) and with Seaton and Sidmouth a little further away all are perfect for beach days.
