The town of Okehampton is situated on the northern edge of Dartmoor in West Devon.  Okehampton is an ancient town and was initially settled in the Bronze Age.  It lies at the confluence of the East and West Okement Rivers from which is takes its name.  Okehampton has been described as the walking centre of Dartmoor.  It is also popular with cyclists and walkers taking the Granite Way, a beautiful trail from Okehampton to Lydford.

The town has many attractions including the spectacular ruins of Okehampton Castle which date back to Norman times and the beautiful expansive parkland at Simmons Park with leisurely river side walks, ornamental gardens and a Swiss style chalet, multi sports facilities and playing areas for all ages as well as the Parklands Leisure Centre.  The impressive tower of St James Chapel (15C) dominates the main street which in times gone by was the Old London Road lined with coaching inns which can still be seen today.  The Town Hall, a handsome building with granite façade built in 1685 adds a touch of elegance to the town centre which also boasts a number of vibrant shopping arcades as well as the acclaimed Museum of Dartmoor Life.
