Mildmay enjoys a delightful position in the heart of the sought after village of Brayford, situated close to the western edge of the Exmoor National Park. Brayford itself provides a thriving local community offering pre and primary schooling, a village hall, Methodist Chapel and nearby High Bray Church. Public Schooling is available at the renowned West Buckland School which lies about 4 miles to the south-west. The bustling North Devon market town of South Molton is approximately 7 miles to the south, providing a good range of local services, including shops, banks, recreational facilities, primary and secondary schooling. The larger centre of Barnstaple lies about 9 miles to the west affording a more extensive range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities befitting those of an important regional centre.
From South Molton the A361 North Devon link road provides easy access to Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27) with mainline Intercity rail connections available at Tiverton Parkway (London, Paddington approx. 2 hours) and international airports at Exeter and Bristol. The surrounding picturesque North Devon countryside provides a wealth of recreational activities including walking, horse riding, cycling, fishing on the rivers Bray, Mole and Taw, hunting, shooting and golf courses at High Bullen, Barnstaple and Tiverton. The nearby Exmoor National Park offers glorious moorland scenery and the popular coastal towns and sandy beaches of Combe Martin, Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Putsborough and Croyde are within easy reach.
