Manaton is a picturesque, quiet, moorland village across from Lustleigh and near to the Dartmoor National Park. The village is very popular with walkers and cyclists as Manaton is very close to the National park. The village's local pub, The Kestor Inn, serves traditional home-cooked food and offers stunning scenery. This is a destination perfect for those wanting a rural retreat but close to larger towns. We have a great collection of Manaton self-catering cottages from which you can enjoy the area.
