Georgeham is a typical small traditional Devon village safe lying within a conservation area. Beautiful thatched cottages, cobbled lanes, stone walls, surround the medieval church and grave yard. Henry Williamson made this his home in 1921 and it is here that he wrote his famous book Tarka the Otter. You can visit the Blue Plaque house where he spent his days inspired by his surroundings.
There are a host of walks leading from the historic village down to the beaches or out to rolling hills offering specacular views towards the sea and Exmoor.
One of the biggest attractions to the village are its two fantastic pubs. Both have won lots of awards for their great food and atmosphere. Do not go home without a visit to at least one. The Kings Arms has some seriously fun music nights all year round.
The village also boasts a wonderful post office and shop that opens in the summer from 8am to 8pm (remarkable in Devon) and sells all the things you might have forgotten in your big shop and more. Great local produce and the most delious fresh bread - worth making a detour for. It runs a small off licence too.
It’s worth noting that a night out in Croyde is only a 20 minute walk away.
