LOCATION Scorrition is a beautiful Dartmoor village with a popular pub, and one of the few farms left in England licensed to sell milk straight from the cow. Close by is the village of Holne, which has a thriving community owned village shop and tea room as well as a village pub whose premises date back to the 14th century.

Buckfastleigh is some two and a half miles away. This tranquil town has a history connected with the woollen industry, but it is best known for the nearby Buckfast Abbey and the South Devon steam railway which runs along the River Dart to the sought-after town of Totnes which is about 10 miles away and known for its Norman castle and eclectic mixture of shops and restaurants.

Ashburton also offers an excellent range of facilities including independent restaurants such as the Old Library as well as coffee shops, a delicatessen, artisan bakery, a fish deli and cookery school. There are also excellent transport links being approximately 7 miles from Totnes and Newton Abbot with their direct rail links to London Paddington and Plymouth. The town also lies just off the A38 Devon Expressway giving easy access to Plymouth and Exeter and the M5 beyond.
