Location
Lower Corndon is a tiny hamlet in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park, to the south west of Chagford, clustered around a small country lane, below Meldon Hill and just to the east of Fernworthy Reservoir. The nearby popular town of Chagford, about 10 minutes drive away, is centred around its beautiful square and provides an excellent selection of local facilities, including church, primary and Montessori schools, post office, bank, health and dental centre, library and excellent sports facilities. There are a wide variety of shops, including Spar, delicatessen, dairy, ironmonger, wine merchant, art galleries and a selection of pubs and restaurants, with the award winning Gidleigh Park Hotel 2 miles from the town. It hosts a very eclectic community, with many famous artists, potters, film makers and others choosing it as a place to live and work and there are separate film, literary and music festivals. Surrounding Chagford are a number of picturesque villages and hamlets and Dartmoor is renowned for its spectacular scenery, with its granite tors, heather clad moorland and wooded valleys bisected by rushing streams and rivers and there are many and varied opportunities on the doorstep for walking, riding, fishing, etc.

Communications
From Chagford there is easy access on to the A382, leading north to the A30 dual carriageway with leads west, via Okehampton, to Cornwall and east to the university and cathedral city of Exeter, where there is access on to the M5 motorway, railway stations with mainline connections to London (Paddington and Waterloo) and an international airport.
