Newton Abbot

UK travel information

Newton Abbot is a market town within Devon, England, on the River Teign. The town is well known for its traditional countryside features, including a racecourse and three country parks: Decoy, Stover and Bradley. The centre of the town features the ancient tower of St Leonard, which is all that remains of the medieval chapel of St Leonard. Opposite the tower is a plaque marking the spot where the first declaration of William III was read. The opposing end of the town from these landmarks is the National Trust property, Bradley Manor, a 15th Century manor house in its own secluded woodland setting, with a fabulous great hall that emblazoned with the royal coat of arms of Elizabeth I.


Newton Abbot hotels

Also within the town is one of only two remaining cider houses in the United Kingdom, Ye Olde Cider, which sells only cider, perry, country wines and soft drinks.
