South Zeal is a village on Dartmoor, in Devon, UK.

It has a Church of England chapel and a Methodist chapel. The church is situated in the smaller South Tawton village, down the road, for which the parish is named. The differences have their basis in history when South Tawton was a manor and South Zeal was a village in that manor, where the manor hall was situated. The manor house, constructed around a former monastery which itself was built around a Neolithic standing stone called the South Zeal Menhir, is now the Oxenham Arms an inn and hotel in the centre of the village.
