Ugborough has a rich history that dates back to the Domesday Book and it certainly looks the part – life revolves around the village square where sheep and cattle markets were once held and where the annual fair still takes place every July. The square is overlooked by the 12th century St Peter’s Church. The granite tower, which replaced the smaller medieval tower in the 16th century, can be seen from miles around.
A short walk from the square takes you to the cornerstones of village life – the parish hall, the primary school and pre-school, local businesses and two pubs, The Ship Inn and The Anchor Inn. Both excellent pubs so you are spoilt for choice.
Ugborough is a virtual oasis in the middle of open farmland in a beautiful corner of the South Hams. Lots of country walks and fresh air to be found here.
Ugborough is another one of those lovely, peaceful villages that sit just off the A38 Devon Expressway which links Exeter and Plymouth with Cornwall beyond.
Access to shops and medical facilities are available just a few miles away in Ivybridge. Excellent pre-school and primary school which feed into Ivybridge Community College which has great sporting facilities.
You may be in green and pleasant countryside in Ugborough, but you are also close to the coast for watersports enthusiasts. There is safe swimming and surfing at a number of beaches within 15 miles (Bantham is very popular with great facilities) and the Yealm Estuary is a favourite with sailors.
