About a mile to the east is the village of Tawstock with its ancient parish church, noted primary school and St Michaels nursery, with the coastal village of Instow being some 4 miles to the west with its yacht club, sailing, fishing and access on to the Taw/Torridge estuary. Just over 2 miles to the north is Barnstaple, the ancient borough and administrative centre for the North Devon area providing a comprehensive range of both business and leisure facilities including the Green Lane shopping centre, out of town superstores, live theatre, leisure centre, tennis centre and Intercity train service running through to the Cathedral city of Exeter. The area has benefitted from the A361/North Devon Link road which provides convenient access to the area running through to Tiverton from where there is double carriageway access on to the M5 motorway at junction 27 where there is also the Parkway railway station from where journey times to London/Paddington are approximately 2 hours distant.
