Dunsford

Dunsford is a  unique and special village situated just inside the Dartmoor National Park, just 15 minutes drive from Exeter.

The place-name 'Dunsford' is first attested in the Domesday Book of 1086, where it appears as Dunesforda, meaning 'Dunn's ford'.

The village has a number of traditional thatched cottages; a primary school which has a swimming pool, climbing wall and sports field; one village shop and post office; a tea room and a public house. St Mary's Church, built around 1430 is located in the village centre.

Set in the glorious Teign Valley, the Dunsford Show is a Devon village show at its best, usually held in July each year. Full of fun-packed family entertainment you are assured of a fantastic day out. Live music, horse show, cheerleaders, childrens tent, beer tent to name but a few - there is something for everyone!

Nearby is Dunsford nature reserve which is managed by Devon Wildlife Trust and consists of 57 hectares of river valley woodland, heath-covered rocky slopes and fertile flood-plain scrub and grassland. It is especially known for its wild daffodils and six species of fritillary butterfly.
