SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Easton is a rural hamlet situated between Kingsbridge and Salcombe and whilst being within easy reach of both popular estuary towns, it benefits from being tucked away and off the beaten track. The village of West Alvington is about half a mile away where there is a parish church and village inn. Kingsbridge has an excellent range of shops, a cinema and sports centre with indoor swimming pool. There are primary schools at both West Alvington and Kingsbridge and a highly regarded senior school in Kingsbridge. Salcombe and Dartmouth offer fantastic sailing and sea fishing whilst the South Hams coastal path, less than 2 miles away, offers miles of beautiful walks. The A38 Devon Expressway is about 11 miles away with the mainline train station at Totnes (London approx 3 hrs) is 14 miles from the property.
