Lewdown in West Devon According to records, Lewdown is one of the earliest villages built by Saxons in West Devon and rumour has it that the Athelstan, the first King of England, held court in the settlement around 931AD. Amidst the rolling countryside and patches of woodland resides a small assortment of agricultural dwellings as well as a grand Elizabethan manor house, sprinkling of Devon holiday cottages and gastro pub championing the best in local farm produce. The ancient market town of Launceston is just a short drive away, as well as Tavistock which now hosts an array of independent boutiques and markets in place of its mystical vanished Benedictine abbey.
