As well as comfortable accommodation and delicious food, The Oxenham Arms has an amazing history. Do check out the History page on their website for lots of details. They are the oldest heritage inn in Devon and one of the most famous old coaching inns in the UK.

Inside you’ll find the 27 foot Neolithic Menhir Standing Stone around which a still intact 12th Century Benedictine Monastery was built. The Monastery estate became a Manor House in the 14th Century and then became an Inn in 1477.

There are many stories of people who have lived or visited the place including a notorious Pirate!
