This beautiful North East corner of Dartmoor is the softer side of the moor and has two attractive principal towns just four miles apart from each other. Both have vibrant thriving communities and superb ranges of amenities as well as great access to countryside, moorland and riverside walks. They have a good variety of day to day and specialist shops, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries, churches, chapels, pubs, hotels, cafes and restaurants. Each has a primary school and pre school and in the case of Chagford there is a Montessori as well. Both have super fast broadband. Chagford was voted best small town to live in rural Britain in the Spring of 2015 by the Sunday Times. There are also picturesque villages such as Drewsteignton, Throwleigh, Gidleigh, South Zeal, South Tawton and North Bovey and numerous other smaller rural settlements in the area. This part of Dartmoor enjoys a slightly drier climate, sheltered as it is by the higher moor to the North West, yet it has beautiful lush valleys, rounded hills and peaceful weathered granite tors. Major shops are just 15-20 miles away in Exeter.
Fowlers have a prominent corner office in the bustling town square in Chagford and we cover all of North East Dartmoor.

North East Dartmoor enjoys a great community spirit with many village and town events, flea markets and craft fairs and there is even an annual music festival each July called Chagstock. There is a good arts scene with music, theatre and exhibitions all year round.
