Situation Brixton Torr, set on the fringes of the South Hams, 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. The village of Brixton is close by and very convenient for Plymouth with a regular bus service. The National Trust beach at Wembury is just 10 minutes by car, with further beaches at Mothecombe and the South Hams with its lovely countryside and coastline. The village has a church, 'Outstanding' Primary School, nursery, The Foxhound public house, fish and chip shop, general stores, Post Office 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.
