North Devon County Show 2018

The North Devon County Show is getting ready for the 2018 event - showcasing a wonderful Devon blend of attractions, exhibitions, trade stands, craft and food - celebrating all things rural. It's the premier agricultural event that has something for everyone.

There will be classes for Alpacas, Beef and Dairy Cattle, Sheep, Horse Showing Classes and Show Jumping, plus Pony Club Games and Young Handler competitions. Visitors can also expect to enjoy an Open Dog Show and Poultry Display. 

Then there's the wide variety of stands, offering trades of all types. Make sure you visit the Food Hall and the Crafts and Gifts Marquee.

Also, there will be demonstrations in the Rural Skills and Country Pursuits arenas, some Vintage Cards and Tractors, The North Devon WI Summer Competition and Young Farmers Rally.

It's a lot to fill one day, but guests can have a great time wandering the grounds and taking in as much as possible. The show site is a level area of approximately 50 acres, so access and movability is good but expect mud underfoot. Gates open at 8am before the show officially starts at 8.30am.

Visit their website for more details.

If you need accommodation around the event, it's just a short drive to Bideford, where we're in a convenient location to spend one nights or two. Of course, as our guest, you can dine in our luxury rooms and dine in our restaurant. Use the 'Book Now' button to make the arrangements.
