The village of Down Thomas, with its pub, Post Office and village shop is only a mile or so away and not much further are the beaches of Bovisand and Wembury. Staddon Heights Golf Club with its panoramic views across Plymouth Sound is also within a mile or so. There is an extensive network of nearby footpaths giving access to some delightful rural and coastal areas.
