Location
Dunstone is an attractive and tiny hamlet in the heart of the peaceful and unspoiled South Hams countryside, just to the east of the village of Yealmpton, which provides a full selection of local amenities including store, shops, post office, two pubs, doctors’ surgery, garage and primary school. About 4.5 miles away is the beautiful, sandy beach at Mothecombe, situated at the mouth of the stunning and unspoiled River Erme Estuary and with the lovely Wonwell Beach on the opposite side of the river. The South Hams area of South Devon is renowned for its lovely, rolling countryside and pretty villages and especially for its spectacularly beautiful coastline, with many estuaries and beaches and all accessed via the South West Coastal Path. Locally there are many opportunities
for sailing, from such places as the marinas at Plymouth, nearby Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo, or further afield at Kingsbridge and Salcombe. Also within easy reach, to the north, is Dartmoor National Park, renowned for its wonderful scenery, with its granite tors, heather clad moorland and wooded valleys bisected by rushing streams and rivers and there are many and varied opportunities in the area for walking, riding, fishing and other outdoor activities. There are golf courses in the area at Bigbury, Thurlestone and Plymouth.

Communications
Via the A379 and A3121, there is easy access from the area to the A38 dual carriageway leading north east to the university and cathedral city of Exeter, where there is access onto the M5 motorway and an international airport. Also, via the A379, there is
very quick access into the city of Plymouth, where there is a railway station with mainline connections to London and from where there are ferries to France and Spain.
