The larger market town of South Molton is about eleven miles and offers a further range of amenities and facilities and the regional centre of Barnstaple is also about eleven miles distant.
The 'Tarka Line' railway line runs a regular service between Barnstaple and Exeter with the nearest station being about half a mile away at Portsmouth Arms.
