Rackenford Village Devon | large North Devon Parish Covering 4000 acres | Exmoor


Welcome to Rackenford

Stacks Image 189
Rackenford is a large North Devon parish, covering 4000 acres of high ground below Exmoor and between Tiverton (8 miles) and South Molton (10 miles). About 300 of the total population of 400 live in the small village of Rackenford itself and the very small hamlet of Creacombe. Both are ringed by farms, and agriculture is still the largest single source of employment. Unlike so many small villages, we still have our school, our village shop, a traditional village local The Stag Inn and a social club, and this site gives you information on all of our organisations. We also maintain a strong tradition of village events. You can discover Village Day on Rackenford Common, the November 5th bonfire, the Garden Club's spring and autumn shows to name a few. A truly great village with a vibrant community!
We hope you will find useful information on places to stay and on the many local services available.
