The sandy beaches on North Devon's coastline at Saunton, Croyde and Putsborough are within easy reach as are both Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks.
The A361 (North Devon Link Road) can be accessed at South Molton and Tiverton and provides access to the M5 motorway at Junction 27, nearby to which is Tiverton Parkway rail station with mainline services to London Paddington.
