Welcome to Harrowbarrow

Harrowbarrow is a small rural village nestled in the beautiful Tamar Valley, an area rich in mining and agricultural heritage. The village school, built in 1872, is at the heart of a busy and vibrant community. With Dartmoor National Park to the east, views of the River Tamar meandering down to Plymouth Sound to the south and Bodmin Moor to the west, Harrowbarrow is located in one of the most beautiful regions of the South West.
