Winkleigh village between Dartmoor and Exmoor is one of Devon's hidden gem rural villages with two fine real ale inns and a cluster of wonderful independent shops including a local butchers and a village store. The ruins of a 12th century castle also feature in the village hinting at its ancient history. In the 20th century during the Second World War Winkleigh's local airfield played a crucial role in the war effort.

Halsdon nature reserve is only minutes from the village, containing deciduous woodland and pasture cut through by the River Torridge. Great Torrington attractions including The Plough Arts Centre, Torrington 1646 and Dartington Crystal are also conveniently close as is beautiful RHS Garden Rosemoor.
