Ringmore was first mentioned in the Domesday Book, in which it was referred to as "Reimore". Until 1908, there was a manor (or estate) located in Ringmore. Due to the absence of a lord in the manor, there are no official written records of the past of the village.
Ringmore is a village on the coast of Devon, England, at the head of a valley. From the village one can see Bigbury Bay and Aymore Cove. Within it are two 13th-century buildings, namely its Church of All Hallows and The Journey's End inn, previously known as The New Inn.
The parish of Ringmore extends to 1,128 acres and includes at its southern boundary the shoreline hamlet of Challaborough and, to the north, a group of houses at Marwell. Most of its land is owned by the National Trust, and a large part of the village is designated as a Conservation Area. By common consent there is no street lighting and there is, from 2017, a mobile phone mast near the village (close to St Anne’s Chapel).
