Knowstone, population 200, is another small staging post on the Two Moors Way, centred around its very pretty thatched pub, The Masons Arms, which was originally constructed by the builders of the nearby parish church and was made up of three cottages. It’s now renowned far and wide for its food and holds a Michelin Star as well as running regular chef’s Master Classes.


St. Peters Church which was built in the 13th century remains unspoilt and like all those in the mid Devon area is well worth a quick visit. Whilst the Masons Arms does not have its own lodgings there are a couple of local B&B’s that allow an overnight here with the chance to visit the Masons for some of the best dining on the whole 89 mile walk.
