    Going working in Okehampton and living??????

    Hi All,
    Look's like a new job down in Okehampton so now
    need to put all my good's in storage and find a house. Got to
    sell mine first though in this economic country of our's!!!
    The way it's looking we will be down in 2 to 3 week's
    and nowhere to live yet all this from a phone call last week,
    so a meet with some local likeminded people and a beer or
    two would help us settle down. The thing's one has to do
    to make the wife's Dream of living in Devon come True AHH!!!
    but she love's me for it HA HA.

    Nice part of the world down there, my missus is from near North Tawton so we go down there on a regular basis. Unfortunately not down there any time soon. Good luck with the move down, if you settle I'll let you know next time I'm in the locality! It's a while since I stopped for a pint in Okey but if I remember rightly the White Hart is alright for a pint. Loads of cracking boozers in the local area though, one place I can't recommend highly enough for really good ale and great food is the old Tom Cobley Inn in Samford Courtney, a great feed, great ale and great craic. I'm hungry just thinking about it!!

    Best of luck on your new job and welcome to Devon.
    Just don't go to sampford courtney and expect to find the Tom Cobley, because its in Spreyton, over 20 real ales on tap so get you other half to drive.
    Cheers

    I was just about to correct myself! Got the places mixed up, the maid put me straight when I told her! It's the New Inn at Sampford Courtney, used to be a good pint in there too.

    The only clay shoot I know of is Ashcombe http://www.ashcombeadventure.co.uk/clay_pigeon.php

    There might be nearer ones, as for the rifle, can't help I'm afraid.
