An ideal base from which to explore the many charms of Dartmoor National Park, this is a small town with a long history.

The National Trust owns a group of almshouses dating to the early 17th century as well as Castle Drogo, which stands proudly above the Teign Valley. It was built of granite in the last century by Julius Drewe, a partner in the Home and Colonial Stores, and designed by the architect Edwin Lutyens.
