SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
West Buckland is a charming village of pretty Devon cottages and stone buildings, nestled within the valley which leads to nearby Bantham, well-known for its stunning, sandy beach and The Sloop Inn. It is just a short drive from neighbouring Thurlestone, with its luxury hotel with leisure facilities and the renowned golf course. Thurlestone is also home to a popular primary school, giving great opportunity for young families to bring up their children in such a delightful area. It is within easy reach of Kingsbridge, the principal market town in the South Hams which has many fine 18th and 19th Century buildings as well as an excellent choice of independent shops, two national supermarkets, good restaurants and pubs, a cinema and a museum.
