The village of Winkleigh lies just 2.8 miles from the property and boasts two public houses, a post office, butchers, a general store, veterinary practice and a doctors' surgery.
Despite its rural position the property still enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and main routes of communication with the A377 providing an easy link to the larger towns of South Molton, Crediton and Barnstaple, each providing an extensive range of everyday shopping, banking, recreational and educational facilities. There are nearby rail stations on the Barnstaple to Exeter (Tarka) line at Eggesford and Kings Nympton, with main line rail services available at Exeter and Tiverton Parkway, and international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

To the north and south respectively the Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks offer beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths, whilst the stunning North Devon coast is also easily accessible, with popular sandy beaches at Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe.
