Okehampton is a town in Devon, England.

Understand[edit]

Get in[edit]

Trains run daily every two hours from Exeter St David's, with peak hour services starting from Exeter Central, taking 45 min via Crediton. This "Dartmoor Line" closed to passenger services in 1972, remaining in use for freight and as a summer heritage railway, but in Nov 2021 it re-opened for regular trains. It's expected the service will increase to hourly early in 2022.

The 1 station is half a mile south of the village. It's an unstaffed platform with a ticket machine but no toilets.
