MARWOOD is a large and beautiful parish, with wooded combes, open downland (rising at Hewish Down Beacon to 859 ft.), and a number of interesting farmhouses. A considerable number of farmsteads go back to Saxon times and are recorded in Domesday Book. These are Marwood itself, Blakewell, Kingsheanton, Metcombe, Varley, Westcott Barton, Whiddon, and Whitefield Barton. Kennacott, another farm, is recorded as early as 1167. Westcott Barton, a home of the Chichesters in the 17th century, is a very interesting example of a large Devon barton in site and layout, with its own small mill. It appears to be medieval in part, remodelled c. 1600.

The Devon Long House Bed & Breakfast and Little House Self Catering Accommodation is a privately owned, traditional Devon long house built in 1670, with lots of charm and character. It has recently been lovingly restored from top to toe. Centrally heated with comfortable, stylish bedrooms and a snug with a cosy fireplace gives a real country feeling.
