SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Middle Hutcherleigh is a hamlet of just a few properties within the popular parish of Blackawton and surrounded by the magnificent South Hams countryside. Blackawton itself is a small but very popular village much favoured for, amongst other reasons, its excellent sense of community. At the heart of the village is the highly regarded primary school. There is also a village shop, 15th Century church and The George Inn, a traditional village pub.
Middle Hutcherleigh is also almost equi-distant three of the South Hams main towns, namely Kingsbridge, Dartmouth and Totnes, all of which offer a wide variety of shops, markets, cafe's, pubs, restaurants, schools, hospitals and leisure facilities. The well-known sailing and yachting centre of Salcombe is within a 30 minute drive, as is the A38 Exeter Plymouth dual carriageway to the North.
