The city of Plymouth is a short distance to the west and Newton Ferrers, at the mouth of the River Yealm and noted for its sailing, is even closer at hand.

The annual Yealmpton Show, which has been running since 1874, is held at nearby Kitley House, the family home of the Polloxfens and Bastards since the time of Elizabeth I and where the nursery rhyme Old Mother Hubbard was written. The village itself has a number of amenities including several shops, primary school, health centre, two pubs, restaurant, garage and Church.
