  This fascinating seaside village with thatched cottages and a shingle beach is possibly the longest in the country while its towered Norman church, St Winifred’s, is among the oldest in Devon.
The National Trust has restored a number of old local buildings, including a bakery and thatched smithy.

Nearby is the 16th century manor house of Cadhay.

Built by the lawyer John Haydon, it has been described as the finest Tudor house in Devon.
