Situation Brixton Torr is an almost timeless hamlet, nestling in a beautiful wooded valley down which a babbling brook runs alongside a meadow to the tidal estuary of Cofflete Creek, an arm of the River Yealm. The setting is delightfully peaceful with tranquil walks through woods along the sides of the estuary. It is hard to believe that the busy city of Plymouth is less than six miles away. Brixton itself is a small village about 5 miles east of Plymouth on the Kingsbridge Road. It is very convenient for Plymouth, the excellent shopping centre at Plymstock, and the South Hams with its lovely countryside and coastline. The village has a church, 'Outstanding' Primary School, nursery, public house, fish and chip shop, Post Office and general store and a restaurant.

Plymouth itself is an historic and vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar and public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb water-sports in and around Plymouth Sound.
