...to the Church House Inn website.
Marldon is a small Devon village nestling in the folds of the South Hams with the traditional ancient church and pub overlooking the village cricket field. The Church House Inn is a delightful village pub and is something of a find.
This multi award winning Grade 2 listed pub was the first pub in Devon to be listed in the Michelin Pub Guide and has been voted Devons Best Country Pub by readers of Devon Life magazine. The awards don't stop there, the Pub have also been voted Devon's Dining Pub of the Year (2013) by the Good Pub Guide. The Church House Inn at Marldon was originally built around 1400 and gave accommodation to the artisans working on the church, after which it became the meeting house for the church congregation and finally the Village Inn.
It was rebuilt in the early eighteenth century and has the most stunning listed Georgian windows. Some of the original glass still remains, despite being next to the village cricket pitch – where "sixes" are now outlawed!
From the pub there are many beautiful country walks including the famous John Musgrave Heritage Trail which heads through Marldon past the pub and through the grounds of Berry Pomerory Castle on its way to Totnes. Ideally situated between Berry Pomerory Castle and Compton Castle the pub makes a perfect venue to relax and enjoy the hospitality after visiting one of these historic buildings.
