A rich history is evident in the community’s castles and ruins, as well as its granite structures in the village’s public areas and its buildings named after pilgrims who emigrated to the United States centuries ago. Neighboring Launceston also has a nice variety of shops which are frequented by those passing through the southern area of Devon.

Spending time in this village is also entertaining when walking through its village shops which are immediately recognized with a whitewash appearance and wares sitting outside on the sidewalk.

Things to do in Chagford, Devon

One advantage of staying in the tranquility of this Devon village is the many offerings of entertaining activity available within a short distance from the village. A few short minutes outside the city one can find Castle Drogo. This castle is unique because it is considered the last built in the region during its construction in the 1920’s. Its interior has magnificent features like its staircase. Spectacular gardens surround the property and are equal reason to visit this area a short distance from Chagford. Directly inside the village one can find St Michael’s church which was constructed several centuries ago. Many legends surround the church, including the story of a bride fatally shot as she left the church in the 1600’s directly after her wedding.

Several neighboring villages have equally interesting areas to visit. Find the neighboring village of Princetown and its ominous looking historical prison. Known as the worst of its type during the Victorian period the prison served primarily as a place for prisoners of war before being turned over for regular use. It currently operates as a prison with a much improved reputation over its historical days. This is a prison which is in active use.

Launceston is another interesting village a short distance from Chagford. Simply walking through its streets one can immediately appreciate the Tutor, Georgian, Gothic, and Victorian architecture of the community, as well as the architecture of a church dating back to 1080’s. The Tamar Valley River Trail is also a relaxing way to enjoy the Devon countryside.

Relaxed.

5 of 5
A very nice home from home. We enjoyed the location and the peace and quiet very much. On the first night of our weeks stay a small herd of deer came onto the property and stayed until they saw us watching them. Our host Wendy made us very welcome, and is able to provide lots of advice on places to go. We took advantage of our NT membership and went somewhere different each day.

Cosy village setting

Stayed for 3 days whilst house hunting. Nice setting, good pub in village. We got the house we were after so all boxes crossed!
