It is surrounded by working farms and miles of beautiful coastline and estuaries which are havens for birds and wildlife.

There is a thriving and active communit...
Getting around
Car, bike and on foot are realistically the only ways of getting around, as this is a location to get away from it all! There is very little in the way of public transport. The bus service to Modbury and Plymouth operates only one day a week!
