The tiny village of Hollacombe is a small parish, near the sources of the river Claw, 2½ miles situated 2.5 miles to the west of Holsworthy, with its many amenities including local produce markets.
The village is reached via pretty Devon country lanes and in the centre is nestled the ancient 13 century St Petroc’s Church, with its aisleless interior and unusual saddleback west tower.
A few farms and a clutch of houses make up the rest of the gentle rural community
Holsworthy is an ancient market town set in the rolling green hills of North Devon. It boasts one of the largest livestock markets in the South West. The town square, surrounded by shops, is the hub of rural life in the town with a weekly pannier market where local growers sell their fresh produce.
