West Challacombe Manor is a medieval manor house in the area. It is described as a "white-washed house with rendered walls and Georgian framed windows on the south slope of Little Hangman Hill and looks like an archetypal Devon farmhouse rather than a medieval manor house." It was restored between 1993-1999. Also of note is the historic Packhorse Bridge and Challacombe Church.
