Manaton Parish Hall

Manaton is a village at the very heart of the Dartmoor National Park, 5 miles from Bovey Tracy. It has exceptional views of the surrounding countryside including Haytor, Hound Tor, Bowerman’s Nose with the high moors to the north.   

The Parish Hall sits at the historic centre of the village, next to the village green and opposite the 14th-century St Winifred’s church. Many of the official South East Dartmoor walks converge on Manaton and therefore, the hall is an ideal control point for organised walking or cycling groups.

The original Parish Hall was built in 1930 on land leased from the church.  On expiry of the lease in 1951 the land was acquired for £25. In 1966 the hall was destroyed by a fallen tree and replaced with the current building.

The hall was first registered as a charity in 1953 and is registered with the Charity Commission, number 30089. All income is invested maintaining the hall and its facilities.


The Hallmark accreditation is a scheme run by the Devon Community Council in partnership with the government-backed charity Action for Communities in Rural England (ACRE).

The Hallmark accreditation approval is a guarantee to users that the Hall committee, accounts and facilities are managed correctly and that they also conform to the many legal regulations which governing community buildings in the county. The Manaton Parish Hall was granted Hallmarks 1 & 2 in December 2013.
