Bradstone is a village in Devon, England, on the River Tamar. It has a small church and a Tudor hall (now a farm) with an attractive gatehouse.

Bradstone Manor Farm is a Grade II listed manor house with a Grade I listed 16th century gatehouse.

The Church of St Nonna was built in the 12th century. It has been designated as a Grade I listed building[1] and is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.[2] The church has an arcaded north aisle. The west tower was added in the 15th century.[2] The tracery in the south wall of the chancel is believed to date from 1261 when the church was dedicated by Bishop Walter Branscombe.[1] Outside the tower is a stone dedicated to John Coumbe, said to have lived from 1484 to 1604 — outliving the entire Tudor dynasty.
