About the neighbourhood
We are set in the heart of the Devonshire countryside but access to us by car if very easy. Our nearest town Torrington is 3 miles away and provides Shops,restaurants and pubs. For those with green fingers RHS Rosemoor is well worth a visit just 3 miles and Dartington Crystal is also worth a visit in Torrington. Our nearest golden beach is Westward Ho! 20 mins by car, great for surfing.
