Chagford TQ13 8AJ
Sadly, this event has had to be cancelled, because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Three Crowns building is early Tudor and Grade II* listed. It is reputed to have been the home of Sir John Whiddon who died in 1575. It became an inn in the 19th century. According to Historic England, ‘the building is of immense value to the centre of Chagford, and forms part of an attractive group of listed buildings in the vicinity of St Michael’s Church’.
The market town of Chagford is surrounded by some of Dartmoor’s most spectacular scenery. Why not combine your visit to Chagford with a short walk, starting from the inn? For further details, go to their website threecrowns-chagford.co.uk and click on Attractions; there you will find a detailed description of four circular walks. Nearby gardens worth visiting are Castle Drogo and Stone Lane.
By car: The Three Crowns Inn is located in the High Street, TQ13 8AJ, just along from the market square. There is no parking at The Three Crowns for non-residents, but there is a Pay and Display carpark about 50 metres from the inn and close to the main square.
