Sampford Courtenay is a country railway station that lies in the very heart of Devon and is used by the nearby village of the same name just a few miles away. The station was opened in the mid-19th century by the then London and South Western Railway during a boom in rail construction that saw lines and stations pop over across the country. In the 1870s it was renamed Belstone Corner after the extension of the line to Okehampton and then reverted to its original name several years later. With an average of just 150 passengers using the station in a year, it’s one of the least used in the country. In 2002, the upside platform was reopened by Dartmoor Railway on the service between Exeter and Okehampton. Other than the single platform, there are absolutely no facilities here, so passengers are required to buy their ticket on board the train with the conductor or in advance. Today, there are is only a Sunday service during the summer months between Okehampton and Crediton operated by Great Western Railway.

When you step off in Sampford Courtenay, make a dash for the near Dartmoor National Park, a vast moorland park with spectacular trails for walking, cycling and horse riding as well as rocky granite cliffs perfect for climbing and other outdoor pursuits.
