Situation - Pax Cottage is situated in a very peaceful setting 'off the beaten track' between the small village of Wembworthy and Eggesford in the spectacular, partly wooded, River Taw valley, made famous in Henry Williamsons book, "Tarka the Otter", and approximately mid-way between the University and Cathedral city of Exeter to the south east and Barnstaple to the north west. Within easy reach to the north is Exmoor National Park, renowned for its beautiful scenery and opportunities for walking, riding and fishing and the spectacular North Devon coast, with its sandy beaches and fabulous coastal walks. There are excellent opportunities for salmon, sea trout and trout fishing along the River Taw, including from the Fox and Hounds Hotel at Eggesford. The nearest local amenities are available either in the large village of Winkleigh to the west, or the small town of Chulmleigh on the other side of the Taw Valley, both of which have shops, pubs, church, primary schools, and in Chulmleigh is the community college, health centre and golf course. There is also a popular golf course at the High Bullen Hotel at Chittlehamholt.
