The pretty historic town of Bampton, in mid-west Devon, is situated on the southern fringes of the Exmoor National Park in the deep valley of the river Batherm. It is about two miles from the Somerset border, to the north of Tiverton, off the A396.

The town’s origins date back to about 700AD and contain many indications of the Saxon presence. These include local place names and ground works. Bampton's centre has been declared a Conservation Area and there are many listed buildings, some dating back to the early 17th century.

Our little town has a surprising range of local amenities - shops, pubs, restaurants, businesses, and places to stay. It also has quite a history from the Romans to its early Saxon origins, the Norman castle, the wool and pony trade, the 12th century church, the quarrying of the local stone; now it is a thriving centre used by local villagers and visitors.

Bampton takes its floral displays very seriously having won Britain in Bloom national award on at least five occasions. It also won the world
event in 1999. Bampton Fair, held on the last Thursday in October each year, existed long before King Henry III granted it a charter in 1258 and is one of the oldest fairs in the country. It was particularly famous for its sales of Exmoor ponies.

Tiverton can be found 10 miles to the south, and is home to all the amenities you could require, including an attractive high street, a variety
of restaurants, and a selection of fantastic schools such as Blundell’s and nearby Uffculme. There is also the prestigious Tiverton Golf Club and is considered by many to be among the best 18-hole parkland courses in the region. Tiverton is also home to one of the last horsedrawn barges in the UK with the Grand Western Canal Meandering 11 miles across the Devon countryside.
Tiverton Castle stands out as a stunning landmark to explore in this historic town. In 1106 the manor of Tiverton was granted by King Henry I to Richard de Redvers, who built the castle. During the Civil War, it featured as a Royalist stronghold.

Tiverton town centre is home to a traditional farmers market, where the local community can come together to help support local food and beverage suppliers. The heritage of this location is on display as it hosts a rare Pannier market, a perfect place to browse for some stylish, unique gifts. In the local village of Bolham stands Knighthayes Court. A National Trust property with spectacular gardens, parklands and one of the finest surviving Gothic Revival houses, a rare example of the work of the eccentric and inspired architect William Burges.
