 Charleton Parish Council

Welcome to the Charleton Parish Council website. Including both East and West Charleton, the Parish nestles in the outstanding natural beauty of the South Hams area of South Devon. Our aim is to keep our local parishioners up to date with what's going on in the Parish and to inform our friends and visitors from outside the Parish about our attractions and local area.

We are close to Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Salcombe and not far from Plymouth, Totnes and Torbay. Our footpaths lead through delightful fields and lanes with spectacular views of the Kingsbridge Estuary and rolling countryside all around.
