Milton Combe is a pretty village approximately two miles from Yelverton, some seven miles from Tavistock and eight miles from the city of Plymouth. This tranquil village is located on the rural edge of the Tavy Valley and close to the open moorland and the western fringes of the Dartmoor National Park. Much of the surrounding lands are owned by the privately owned Maristow Estate, preserving the character of the area. Close by is the moorland village of Yelverton, with extensive facilities (supermarket, pharmacy, surgery, cafes, etc).
Importantly, and only a short stroll away, the village plays host to the Who'd Have Thought It, a renowned, cosy public house which serves good food and traditional ales in a picture post card setting. A stone's throw away is the National Trust's Buckland Abbey.
Further afield is the delightful and popular ancient market/stannary town of Tavistock, with an extensive range of facilities including fine independent schools. Heading south past Derriford Hospital, the maritime port of Plymouth will be found, with direct links to London and excellent facilities for sailing, including comprehensive marina provision and access to some of the finest uncrowded waters in the country.
The south coasts of Devon and Cornwall, with their beautiful estuaries, beaches and coastal walks, are within easy reach as well as the rugged coastline of North Cornwall. Dartmoor National Park, with its 368 square miles of spectacular scenery and rugged granite tors, is literally on the doorstep. This heather clad moorland, with deep wooded valleys and rushing streams, provides unlimited opportunities for walking, riding and fishing.Description
