You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Nice place when it's not too full, but in hot weather there's no air conditioning and it gets very hot!

Simpkins Edwards - Okehampton

4 Fore St, Okehampton EX20 1AD, UK – 01837 52485

Local Chambers of Commerce for EX20 1EJ. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Simmons Park & Car Park

Okehampton EX20 1EP, UK

Good picnic area and place for children to play, the river goes to the side if the large grass expanse but watch small children near the edges. There is play area for little ones and lots going on in the sports centre next door. Good area for a walk and talk :-)

Spend half a day just wandering around. A beautiful Edwardien park. Thank you Mr. Simmons.

Dental Surgeries

mydentist, okehampton

6 Station Rd, England, Okehampton EX20 1DZ, UK – 01837 52745

A very well managed practice with friendly, courteous staff. The standard of dental treatment itself is of the highest quality - I have no hesitation in recommending it.

Okehampton Medical Centre

East St, Okehampton EX20 1AY, UK – 01837 52233

An excellent medical centre. Somehow (despite worsening funding pressures and an increasing population combined with an excessive number of over-entitled individuals within the population who expect an expensive private service without paying a penny in either medical fees or taxes) the practice has somehow managed to adapt and to cope and continue to offer safe care. To any who feel aggrieved by the medical centre, why not register at a different practice and see whether your issues have any genuine value (you will certainly find identical problems at every medical centre) or even write to your MP to try and create the political changes which are required for a better service to be offered.

Rob Greaves Photography

The Bungalow, Paradise Meadow, Church Street, Okehampton EX20 1JF, UK – 07757 378456

It's easy for an anonymous person to give five stars for a service, but I worked with Rob Greaves on my feature film "The Lives We Lead" and a collection of photography gigs surrounding it and he was the most organized, enthusiastic and hard-working person on set. Rob's compositions are exquisite. He has a brilliant eye for the craft and a deep, thorough technical knowledge of cameras, lenses and software that only comes from extensive hands-on practice. Rob is focused and flexible to work with and I can only complain that he no longer resides in Sydney, Australia (where we shot our film), because I have been unable to come across another Director of Photography with his skill and finesse. I highly recommend him without hesitation.

We had the pleasure of Rob photograph our engagement shoot with the help of his lovely wife. Rob was very professional but easy going. He and his wife made my partner and myself feel very relaxed and comfortable which made the photos very natural. All the photos turned out great, I struggled to find a favourite. I would highly recommend him!

Oaktree Occasions

5 Cranmere Rd, Okehampton EX20 1UE, UK – 01837 55841

Where to begin - I can't praise them enough! Jo and Caroline of Oaktree Occasions recently catered for our wedding. Everything was vegan, from a selection of canapés to a full three course meal. Despite this being a little different to their usual fare they were helpful and positive, and did everything possible to make things perfect. When we asked them about making a certain dish they were able to do so marvellously, and when we asked for help or ideas they were fantastic at that, too. The guests raved about the food, even those who were initially dubious about it all being vegan and thus not having any animal products. Everything was presented beautifully. We had a pirate themed wedding with bride, groom and guests all dressing up, and their lovely team of servers joined in the fun by donning bandanas and drawing scars on their cheeks! We were immensely impressed by the service throughout, from the initial contact right up until after the wedding. They didn't try to make us go with what they thought we should have, they truly listened to our requests and exceeded all our expectations in carrying them out. We would recommend Oaktree Occasions to anyone!

Caroline and Jo were truly amazing. They went above and beyond from our very first consultation, all the way through to the big day to help ensure every detail was planned to perfection, even helping us be more realistic with our timings for the day. The food and service on the day itself could not have been better, and a number of our guests has since told us that both the vegetarian and meat options were the nicest they have ever eaten at a wedding. All the waiting staff were professional and friendly and I would unreservedly recommend Oaktree’s services to anyone planning a large event.
