The property is also just a few short miles away is the charming, ancient village of Chagford. Gidleigh Park is located just outside of the village of Chagford. Chagford itself lies in a parish rich in prehistoric remains and it is likely that much of the area has been continually settled for more than 4,000 years. A Charter of 1305 ordained that Chagford should bc one of the Stannary Towns of Devon, a place where smelted tin was collected for stamping and taxation purposes. Chagford also shared in the prosperity enjoyed by Devon's woollen industry, especially in the 16th century and later in the 18th and 19th centuries. High quality late-16th and early 17th-century buildings, such as the Three Crowns and Endecott House, reflect Chagford's prosperity of that time.
