Welcome to Holcombe Rogus

Welcome to the Holcombe Rogus village website.  We are a small, friendly community of about 500 people situated on the Devon-Somerset border in a beautiful rural location close to the Blackdown Hills.  If you live in Holcombe Rogus or are thinking of visiting us then this site is for you. Our most notable landmark is the privately-owned Holcombe Court, possibly the finest Tudor house in England, situated next to the fine Medieval church. We also have a thriving pub, The Prince of Wales, a Primary School, Post Office and a small shop and garage. Nearby attractions include the Grand Western Canal and National Trust properties Knightshayes Court and Killerton.

    1. Hi Megan,
      Thanks for your comment. I’m happy to include the school newsletter and to post anything of interest from community groups.

    1. It’s a WordPress site with an installed theme (one of the free ones). These are not hard to set up if you have reasonable IT skills.

  1. Holcombe Rogus gives one hope for the future and survival of mankind. Peaceful and serene. One might expect to round the corner of 16th street and bump into Margaret Rutherford. Also notable is the exceptional British painter Tim Hayward. I would certainly live in this enchanted village if I could.

  2. It’s great to see comments from far and wide…Tuscon, Arizona no less. Also good to hear that the reputation of Tim Hayward goes beyond national boundaries to global status.
