Stoke Gabriel is an attractive and highly desirable village set in the cleft of one of the River Dart's banks; a perfect place to retire or raise a family, with children's sporting activities and pre and primary school.
This friendly village with its winding, narrow roads has a church, two pubs and three shops and is a boatman's paradise (at high tide!) It is ideally situated for travelling to Totnes or the towns of Torbay by bus or car.
Totnes is approximately 4 miles away and has a main line railway station with a service to London Paddington.
The busy medieval town of Totnes is a bustling and thriving market town, that retains much of its original character, full of interest with a wide range of good local schools, shopping facilities and recreational pursuits including indoor swimming pool and boating opportunities on the River Dart.
