Stokenham, South Devon
In the South Hams of Devon and dating back to Saxon times, Stokenham in the parish of the same name is one of seven settlements in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Of some 15 square miles and with approximately 7 miles of coast line the economy has, traditionally, been dependent on fishing and farming, particularly beef and dairy products. More recently the quiet charm of the area and the temperate climate has attracted a growing number of holiday visitors particularly during the summer months.

The village itself, for the most part, is skirted by the main road (A379) from Kingsbridge 5 miles to Dartmouth 9 miles and comprises the church of St. Michael and All Angels, two pubs, the local primary school, a parish hall and a very attractive collection of listed cottages with more modern bungalows on the fringe.
