A pretty village pleasantly situated on the banks of the small River Taw, just four miles from Okehampton. South Tawton was mentioned in the Domesday Book and known then as ‘East Ash'. St Andrews Church contains many plaques and memorials to local people inside including the Oxenham family who held a large estate nearby during the 18th century.
South Tawton is also home to the famous Church House, a 15th century building, constructed from Dartmoor granite and topped with a roof of thatch. On the far side of the road you will find a lovely old pub, and from here you can enjoy walking part of the Tarka Trail.
