Places of interest

    South Devon is all about the lifestyle; with a fabulous coastline to explore from Dawlish and Teignmouth around to Torquay, Paignton & Brixham then onto Kingswear and Dartmouth. The South West Coastal Path winds around this entire route, with access to beaches and all things nautical. If we head inland following the two beautiful estuary rivers of the River Dart and the River Teign with their hidden valleys, coves and tributaries, we emerge in the market towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot. Surrounded by pretty rural villages and farmland, further inland you discover the stunning Dartmoor National Park, with its breath taking views, diverse wildlife, and moorland communities. And in amongst this rich and varied landscape we have a host of different styles of properties from which to choose. Perhaps it is your dream to own the quintessential thatched country cottage, or some Victorian splendour on the English Riviera. A converted Fisherman’s terrace, or maybe a contemporary maritime home with views of the sea. The Director of Saunders & Lingard hail from this part of Devon and has  property experience of over 20 years, so we invite you to come on a journey with us and we can share some of the delights of living in this region, help you locate your next home, and move you closer to your dreams.
