Situated in a small hamlet of period properties just one mile to the west of the beautiful and thriving market town of Tavistock. Tavistock is steeped 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 is focussed around the Pannier Market and Bedford Square, in which regular farmer's markets are held. 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.
The city port of Plymouth is 14 miles to the south with a superb range of shopping facilities including department stores, mainline railway station serving London Paddington, deep water marina and regular cross channel ferry port serving Northern France and Spain. Some 15 miles to the northeast is the former market town of Okehampton known as the 'Gateway to Dartmoor' with its easy access to the vital A30 trunk road leading to the city of Exeter. Exeter has an international airport, mainline railway station serving London Paddington and access to the M5 motorway.DESCRIPTION
