Kingsteignton is a large attractive village dating back to Saxon times positioned on the banks of the River Teign in south Devon. This popular village with country lanes and Medieval church is home to over eleven thousand people. Famed for itís rich deposits of clay that Josiah Wedgewood first purchased in the 18th Century. Cyclists and Walkers can embark on a voyage of discovery along the banks of the river, often rewarded with glimpses of Herons, Ducks, and the brilliant flash of colour as the Kingfisher dives. For spectacular woodland with a 220í Waterfall cascading over ancient rocks it has to be Canonteign Falls. Or for lovers of architecture a visit to Ugbrooke Park wonít disappoint, with memorable interiors designed by Robert Adam, outside will find magnificent grounds orchestrated by Capability Brown. Or how about Cockington Court, a fine 17th Century Manor House, the village has a Watermill, an old Forge and ancient cottages clustered around, why not climb aboard a horse and carriage for an unforgettable journey. If shopping is desired Newton Abbot will lighten any purse with a vast choice on offer, or for a chance to enjoy the sport of kings it has to be Newton Abbot Race Course, always a firm favourite,
