Brownston is a quiet farming hamlet with easy access to the A38, being about half a mile from California Cross, where there is a public house and a garage with a comprehensive forecourt shop. The Georgian town of Modbury lies about three miles to the west and provides a wide range of facilities, including a good selection of shops, a primary school, a health centre, a post office, a bank, churches and public houses. For comprehensive shopping Kingsbridge is to the south east and Plymouth is within easy commuting distance to the north west. To the north there is Dartmoor National Park and to the south there are a number of long sandy beaches, as well as fine cliff top and coastal walks, many of which are owned by the National Trust. The Salcombe and Yealm estuaries are close by providing water sports facilities.
