Tavistock is a thriving market town in West Devon, rich in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century, and famed for being the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake. Today, the town offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the sought-after private and independent school, Mount Kelly, whilst the largely 19th-century town centre hosts regular farmer's markets. Tavistock straddles the river Tavy and borders with the Dartmoor National Park along its eastern edge, making it an extremely popular destination for lovers of the outdoors with walking, riding, cycling and exploring all on the doorstep. To the west of the town can be found the Tamar Valley, along the Devon/Cornwall border, offering further opportunities to discover the region's rich heritage.Plymouth, some 15 miles to the south, offers extensive amenities with the added attraction of its coastal access and the Mayflower Marina. The cathedral city of Exeter lies some 40 miles to the northeast, providing connections to London and the rest of the UK via its railway links and the M5 motorway.DESCRIPTION
