This is a peaceful town, with a medieval origin and Dartmoor National park streams running through it. Go feed the ducks or sit in the 'Singing Kettle' cafe or 'The Seed' cafe/health food shop, to get a local taste of the place. Or walk onto the national park through the woods, or a stroll to Buckfast Abbey and to Hembury woods and River Dart swimming spots.
For children there is also a local Butterfly Farm and Otter Sanctuary as well as a steam train ride along the River Dart to Totnes. At sunset you can view bats in motion near the pre-historical caves or arrange a daytime guided tour to Joint Mitnor Cave (containing unfossilised remains of bison, hippopotamus, hyaena, elephant and others).
A short drive to Dartmoor Natural Park's many beauty spots and walks (maps and guide books for walks available) as well as beautiful beaches.
Only 15 minutes drive to Totnes, famous funky alternative and historical town (catch the weekend market), 25 minutes to the cities of Exeter or Plymouth. A car is very useful to getting around outside of the towns, though there is a bus stop 2 min. away with buses to Exeter, Plymouth, Ashburton, Totnes and infrequent buses to Dartmoor.
Bus 88 from Exeter, Totnes and Newton Abbot stops near the house. You can catch a train to the nearest stations in Totnes or N.Abbot, however it's best to arrive here by car to be able to explore the moorland and beaches freely.
