Visit the olde-worlde town of Kingsteignton
Set in south Devon on the River Teign, Kingsteignton is best known for its olde worlde charm and historic buildings, including the Old Toll House and Forsterville Lodge. With a 13th-century church to explore and the Fairwater Leat trickling through, it's the perfect setting for a relaxing break away from busy urban life.
Explore acres of Devonshire countryside
Kingsteignton itself has plenty of green spaces to explore while you're here, including tranquil Oakford Lawn and the spacious Clifford Park, which boasts a children's play area and basketball court. But the real gem of the town is Hackney Marshes, accessed by a footpath beside the Passage House Inn. There's over eight acres of grassland, reed beds and ponds to explore - the perfect place to unwind on a long walk.
