St Nectan's church is an exceptional, delightful country church in a wonderfully scenic location. The medieval church is in the hamlet of Stoke, 2 miles to the west of Hartland.

It was used as an aid to navigation by sailors along the treacherous North Devon coast.

Built in the Romanesque style (eleventh century), it was relatively unchanged until 1948, when many changes were made, without altering too much the general structure of the building. Above the gate stands a fourteenth century bell tower, broken by a small outfacing bay. There is a polychrome wooden altarpiece and Romanesque capitals from the twelfth century (listed Historical Monuments).
