  • Kenton

Famous for it's red sandstone church, built in the reign of Edward III, this attractive village is situated on the road between Dawlish and Exeter. Although very much a Devon community, the village green displays an ancient Cornish cross whose origin is still unclear.

Things to do

Just beyond the village lies Powderham Castle, the home of the Earl and Countess of Devon. Open to the public and a popular family attraction, the castle is set in magnificent grounds overlooking the Exe Estuary. The beautiful interiors are lavishly decorated and superbly furnished. The Castle was used for the filming of "The Remains of the Day" starring Anthony Hopkins and the guided tour includes rooms that would now be recognised by film fans all over the world. Powderham also has a garden centre and farm shop which sells quality local produce.
