There are lovely views of Dartmoor and fields but the "greenery" is not easily accessible for walking. Winkleigh is surrounded by major routes so you have to drive to find somewhere peaceful and safe to walk. It is not pleasant walking the "lanes" nearby as too much traffic. The forests are full of dog mess as people seem to use them as a quick dog toilet area unfortunately.
The people are an odd mix of local with no more ambition than sitting in the pub and "incomer" as they are often called; ie someone moving to Devon from somewhere else. Even someone from Exeter would be an outsider to many "locals". There are many professional and ex-professional people but very few ordinary "working for a living "people. So if you have another source of income, are a middle aged ex professional who has plenty of spare time to follow leisurely pursuits with like minded people you will fit in very well with the farmers and nouveau pretend farmers.

We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page.
We hope this helps.
