The Hen’s Dens – SatNav TQ12 4QP

Situated above the southern bank of the estuary of the River Teign and nestled in a valley, less than a mile from the coast, Stokeinteignhead is a quiet and peaceful village within a conservation area.

Thatched cottages are strung along winding country lanes leading to the centre of the village where a pub, community shop, church and school can be found, all within a stone’s throw of each other.

Tucked just off the coast, on a sunny, south facing slope, the Hen’s Dens can be found on the edge of the village in Higher Gabwell.
