About Mariansleigh

This charming tiny village is set in lovely rural mid-Devonshire countryside within a short distance from the meandering River Mole in the beautiful Mole Valley, and the picturesque Crooked Oak stream.

This is a spacious country region, not much hassle from traffic - in the lanes it is more likely to be horses that you meet! Most of the landscape is given over to agricultural use, with a predominance of farms in the area.

Apart from the prettiness of the village, it is perhaps best known for its ancient church dedicated to St.Mary. The church has a short stubby tower and a tiny porch, it is surrounded by a grassed churchyard where visitors can see graves from several centuries. The village has little in the way of facilities, but both a pub and shop can be found at near-by Bishop's Nympton.

This idyllic place is ideally suited to those seeking solitude and an "away from it all" atmosphere. There are lovely walks across the rolling countryside, rivers to fish, lovely old market town's to discover and a host of little villages where like as not you will venture upon a quaint tea-room serving scrumptious "Devon Cream-teas". For those wishing to venture a little further there are the delights of the Exmoor National Park, and the magnificent Exmoor coast.
