The sought after East Devon village of Broadclyst has a strong community with village shop, pub, church, doctors' surgery, a well-regarded primary school and Clyst Vale Community College secondary school. Cranbrook is a new town near the outskirts of Exeter and provides an excellent range of convenience stores, including a Post Office, take away foods and coffee shops. There is also a local pub and community facilities such as a doctors' surgery, primary and secondary schools and the Younghayes Community Centre. The university and cathedral city of Exeter is about 6.5 miles away and provides an extensive range of facilities befitting a centre of this importance, including excellent dining, shopping, theatre, sporting and recreational amenities. Cranbrook Station offers direct links into Exeter and London Waterloo, with Exeter also serving Paddington and, to the west, Penzance in Cornwall.
