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.
A website for the Holcombe Rogus community
I want to include as much information as possible about what's going on in and around the village. If you live here and have something you'd like to share, you can open a contact form by clicking the tab on the left or send me an email at email@example.com. You can also keep up to date by following us on Twitter @HolcombeRogus. I will be tweeting every time I add something new to the site so you need never be out of touch with what's happening.
