Yarcombe Parish Council

Welcome to Yarcombe

Yarcombe RacesYarcombe is situated within the Beautiful Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in East Devon, just off the A303 near Honiton.

Historically we have some claim to fame. Earl Harold (as of King) briefly owned the manor, prior to his demise at the Battle of Hastings, and much later in Elizabethan times the ownership passed to Sir Francis Drake. Today one of his descendants remains squire of Yarcombe. There was also infamy in the time of the Hundred Years war when money was sent from Yarcombe by its French owner to the armies of France to fight the English.

Yarcombe has many traditions: pig and terrier racing, barrel rolling and metal ball throwing.

For several years The East Devon Sheep Dog trails have been held here in July.
