Chulmleigh is a village in the heart of Devon with a real community spirit. With its narrow lanes, thatched cottages, courtyards and pubs it is a pleasure to wander in this unspoilt part of Devon. It is a destination for all weathers with summer gardens and winter walks. The Tarka Trail starts in nearby Eggesford Forest on the banks of the River Taw, it follows a pretty route and offers some moorland views. Chulmleigh is good for birdwatchers along the quiet riverbanks. Fishing is a popular sport with salmon and sea trout in the rivers and coarse fishing on Catham Lakes and Huntacott Water. Chulmleigh is midway between the national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor and within easy reach of the rugged north Devon coast.
