| Events in Christow | 10 Places to Stay

Christow is a Devonshire Village dating back to Saxon times overlooking the Teign Valley on Dartmoor, home to just over eight hundred and fifty people. The 15th Century church contains thought provoking treasures, and on a grander scale nearby Exeter Cathedral reverses time instantly with the impressive architecture of this Medieval masterpiece. Dartmoor will captivate with wonders such as Canonteign Falls, the breath stealing beauty is unforgettable, whether the sight and sound of rushing water cascading over ancient rocks can be beaten by stunning woodland walks is a choice hard to makeáĒ.. For the thrill of capturing a Rainbow from the Bank or a Boat there is Kennick Reservoir, or perhaps the thought of hooking a winner will tempt a visit to Newton Abbot Race Course. For a glimpse into the days of elegance it has to be Ugbrooke House in existence for 900 years, with scintillating interiors designed by Robert Adam adorned with fine paintings, furniture, and needlework masterfully sewn by nimble fingers, set in grounds designed by Capability Brown. Perhaps the 114 acres at Stover Country Park will grant any wish of seeing plentiful wildlife. Or there is always the deserted remains of a Medieval Village to explore at Hounds Tor,
