Hotels in Tavistock
This pleasant market settlement has existed for well over 1,000 years and is probably best-known for being the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake, who was the second person to circumnavigate the world, between 1577 and 1580. Tavistock was home to a powerful abbey for many years, the remnants of which still survive to this day. The town has also held a regular market for more than 900 years, the 900th anniversary of which was celebrated with a major live music festival and exhibition in 2005.
The abbey was designed in the mid-10th century and remained an important monastic site for almost 600 years, until the Dissolution of the Monasteries. Very little survives of this original structure, which was severely damaged after the area was invaded by Danish forces near the turn of the 11th century, although the church was rebuilt in the 13th and 15th centuries.
The Tavistock Canal
Designed in the early-19th century, the Tavistock Canal was once a busy commercial route used to transport water, although it is now a popular tourist attraction. The water network also belongs to the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006.
Place to visit nearby: Brent Tor
Just a few miles from the town, and within easy reach of all Tavistock hotels, Brent Tor is a picturesque 330-metre rocky hill in the Dartmoor National Park, one of England's largest wildernesses and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The tor, which was formed from a basaltic volcano, is the home of the 13th-century Church of St Michel de Rupe and was inhabited as far back as the Iron Age.
