Okehampton is situated just 2 miles away with a good range of facilities including 3 major supermarkets, a number of chain stores as well as many locally owned shops, major banks and some building societies. There is a modern hospital, a multi doctor surgery and a sports complex with swimming pool. Most other sports are well catered for - golf, squash, tennis, rugby, shooting to name but a few. The highly successful community college has Technology College status with outstanding facilities which takes children to 6th Form. The adjacent park is an outstanding feature of the town. The A30 is easily accessed providing a fast journey to Exeter (23 miles) and to Cornwall. The north and south Devon coasts are both approximately 30 miles.
