Umberleigh is a quiet village set around the old three arched Umberleigh bridge, by the river Taw (Tarka the Otter). only 6 miles from Barnstaple on 377 Exeter road. South Molton and Torrington 8 miles on B3227 Served by the Tarka line train to Umberleigh Station. Chittlehampton, Chittlehamholt and Atherington are only a couple of miles either way from the bridge, and all well worth a visit. All villages have facilities for food and drink.
There are plenty of 'Old English' Thatched cottages in Chilttlehampton, which is particularly quaint, a fine English village square and great spired Church, old medieval stocks, certainly one to walk round. A little further away from Atherington is High Bickington, again lots of old charm, and possibly the most complete old English Devon village is Chulmleigh, some 8 miles away.
