This pretty former coaching town lies in the magnificent Teign Valley near Exeter and is well known by climbers as the location of a dramatic limestone rock formation. Famous visitors to the town include William of Orange and Madame Royale, who sought sanctuary following the execution of her parents, Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette. Nearby are prehistoric caves and the mansion of Ugbrooke House, set in rolling parkland landscaped by 'Capability' Brown. The 10-acre Rock Centre boasts magnificent views, mossy dells and limestone cliffs.
