There are regular daily bus services to Exeter plus trains every hour to Exeter and Barnstaple and a local town bus which covers most urban areas. The town is surrounded by unspoilt farmland and is most famous for being the birthplace of St Boniface in 680 AD. It has excellent schooling facilities, a sports and leisure centre with indoor pool, supermarkets, banks, restaurants, pubs and a good range of local shops. 

Okehampton lies on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park. It is approximately 30 miles from both the north and south Devon coasts. There are superb local beauty spots where one may enjoy walking, riding and fishing. The shopping area contains several banks and supermarkets as well as many interesting locally owned shops.
