| Events in Kenton | 10 Places to Stay

Kenton is a small picturesque village nestling in the valley of the River Kenn in South Devon, only a few miles from Exeter. Attracting walkers and cyclists with it’s beauty and wildlife, add the pretty thatched cottages and Medieval Manor House makes a recipe for success. A tour around Powderham Castle rewinds the hands of time with scintillating Medieval architecture, set within stunning grounds and Deer Park on the banks of the River. The magnificent rooms and fine furniture tells an interesting story. Or perhaps the 15th Century Church of All Saints with it’s six bells is more for you. Nearby is the curious A La Ronde, built in the 18th Century, the 16 sided house has an intriguing collection gathered by two cousins during their Grand Tour, or how about a tour of your own around an enchanting Vineyard set in the foothills of Haldon Hills, Kenton Vineyard unravels the mystery of grape to bottle and offers a chance to sample a glass or two…..for lovers of history there is always the opportunity to see 19th Century Killerton Clyston Mill set over three floors, and Exeter Cathedral which conjures thoughts of centuries past, or for toe curling thrills Crealy Adventure Park just may be the answer……
