This is a new web site based in and around the Tarka Country area in the West Country of England covering Devon and Cornwall, made famous by the book 'Tarka the Otter', written by Henry Williamson.

The aim of this site is to provide a 'ONE-STOP-SHOP' to promote:


  • Tarka Country area and all that it has to offer the individual as a place to visit, relax, enjoy, and view products or services within the area.

  • To allow existing local businesses with a web site to showcase their products and services whether they are tourism, commercially or agriculturally orientated.

  • To provide an Internet marketing platform for those businesses that are not currently using the Internet who can then start with either a basic web presence or a more substantial web site, allowing for future development.

This web site contains two searchable directories, one for commercial and tourism related businesses, the other is for accommodation.
Please use the Directories button above to access these search facilities.
