Also known as Moreton, Moretonhampstead is a small hilltop settlement on the North-Eastern fringes of the Dartmoor National Park. It was first settled and defined from the moors by the Saxons who occupied the area towards the end of the 7th Century. They named it “Moor-Tun”, Meaning “The settlement in the moor”. Moretonhampstead is surrounded by rolling green hills thick with mature woodland, ideal for rambles and exploring. Placed at the geographical centre of the county, it is perfect for not only exploring the moors, but the rest of Devon. The church of St. Andrew can be traced back to 1450 and beside it is the Sentry, a park-like secluded area of rest and quiet in a peaceful and picturesque setting. Part of the Sentry contains a playground for children. On Cross Street can be found the tea rooms and gallery, housed in the old Mearsdon Manner, once home to the Earl of Devon. At the end of the street, the Almshouses bear a date in the 17th Century, but are believed to be at least 200 years older. Visitors to this charming market town can enjoy hiking, cycling, pony trekking and fishing. Moretonhampstead is twinned with Betton in Brittany.
