Eggesford

Tarka Line

Eggesford is halfway along the Tarka Line - stop off for a countryside walk and a bite to eat.

How to visit by train

The café on the station serves breakfasts, lunches and an evening menu on a Friday. The food is all locally sourced and cooked to order in front of you.

There are several local walks thanks to the proximity of Eggesford Forest. This was the first Forestry Commission established woodland back in 1919 and there is an easy circular walk through the woods as well as a number of picnic spots if you wish to eat outside.

Located a short walk from the station, The Fox and Hounds Hotel is a hidden gem offering everything from cream teas to country pursuits. You can even stay in their luxury treehouse. The short walk to the hotel from the station is along a busy road so please do take care.
