Bampton is a small and friendly town and very central for many parts of Devon and Exmoor.

The 17th and 18th centuries saw Bampton become a very busy market trading town with sheep and pony fairs etc. We still celebrate Bampton Fair day on the last Thursday in October but without the ponies.

The Tarka Trail for cyclists runs nearby and most importantly we all share in competing for the prettiest large village in the Britain in Bloom Competition.
