Hawkchurch

Famous for its stunning 12th century Parish Church, Hawkchurch has a surprisingly lively community life for such a small Devonshire village. Visitors to the village can be found admiring the Romanesque carvings in St John the Baptist church, supping a quiet ale in welcoming embrace of The Old Inn or wandering the halls and gardens of Monkton Wyld Court.
