Why visit Stoke Gabriel?
Situated on a creek of the River Dart is the pretty village of Stoke Gabriel. This popular tourist destination is set in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with beautiful countryside and lovely walks right on your doorstep.
Stoke Gabriel used to be very popular with fishermen looking to fish salmon but the numbers of salmon have now dwindled. The town is now known for its tranquil mill pond and for having one of the oldest, if not the oldest tree in Britain. You can find the 1,000 year old, yew tree in the grounds of the Church of St Mary and St Gabriel. According to folklore, if you walk backwards seven times around the tree you will be granted a wish!
The town has two nice pubs, The Castle Inn and The Church House Inn, as well as a café set on the banks of the river. Nearby Paignton Zoo is a great family day out - meet hundreds of different animals, ride the jungle express train or follow the woodland nature trail.
