About the neighbourhood
A car is essential as there are just so many great places to explore. Dartmoor National Park with it's miles and miles of ruggedness is on the doorstep as is the South West Coastal Path so if you love walking this is the place to be. There are many dog friendly beaches including Bantham, Mothecombe, Wembury and Thurlestone to name a few. We are so lucky to have access to so much fresh food especially fish so if you love food, check out the Oyster Shack near Bigbury and the Crab Shed in Salcombe - 2 of my favourites!
