Wembury is a sought after and vibrant village and community situated in the west of the South Hams, between the Yealm Estuary and Plymouth Sound, and is within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The South West Coast Path runs past the beach from which The Mewstone, previously a prison, a private home and a refuge for smugglers, is clearly visible. It is convenient for Plymouth and only a few miles from the A38 and Dartmoor National Park, which offers walking and pony trekking. There are ample local facilities as well as those of Plymouth, about 6 miles away.
