Discover Stoke Fleming: A Village Steeped in History

Stoke Fleming remains a quaint gem in Devon, with its landscapes ripe for both inspiration and repose. History buffs rejoice, as the village is steeped in ancient roots, dating back to being recorded in the Domesday Book. The intertwining of historical narratives with the present creates a unique tapestry, where one can find themselves traversing through time. It's notably marked with the church of Saint Peter, reflecting centuries of ecclesiastic architecture and restoration efforts since 1272.

Rustic Charm and Modern Pursuits

Today’s Stoke Fleming is a quiet sanctuary exuding rural charm. The Green Dragon pub offers an inviting venue for a pint, testament to traditional village life. Meanwhile, those seeking intellectual or recreational activities won't feel amiss with a primary school, library, and a football club. Situated within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it presents itself as an invigorating space for knowledge workers seeking solitude amid nature's grandeur.

Natural Delights and Cultural Treasures

The village's location at the north end of Start Bay, within walking distance to the sea, is ideal for those who yearn for the soothing sounds of the ocean. The gravestone of George Parker Bidder, the "Calculating Boy," symbolizes a bridge between Stoke Fleming’s illustrious past and its tranquil present. Additionally, the area's strong connection to Saint Earmund of Stoke Fleming—the once venerated local patron saint—reminds visitors of the village’s enduring spiritual heritage.
