Ashburton is a colourful, quirky and vibrant historic town situated halfway between Plymouth and Exeter. This ancient rural Stannary town nestles in beautiful surroundings on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park with its hills, valleys, granite tors and rivers and is the ideal base from which to explore the whole region – from moor to sea.
Alongside places of worship and medical practices, Ashburton has a very active community with plenty of activities and clubs to enjoy at the Ashburton Arts Centre including yoga, dance, life drawing and a drama group as well as the ever-popular outdoor swimming pool. There is also a well-regarded primary school and the South Dartmoor Community College.
Ashburton also offers an eclectic mix of shops offering vintage goods, antiques, a family-run ironmonger’s, delicatessen, an artisan bakery, cafes, pubs, a fish deli and the renowned Ashburton Cookery School. There is also an abundance of adventurous opportunities on your doorstep including walking, cycling, pony trekking, kayaking and fishing – locally dubbed as “a town for all reasons” it has something for everyone!
Totnes, approximately seven miles away, has a medieval castle, direct access to the River Dart and offers a further range of interesting independent shops, boutique stores and a supermarket. There is a street market twice a week and a monthly food market.
Old Manor Close sits equidistant between the thriving university cities of Plymouth and Exeter with a wealth of cultural activities, theatres, museums, arts centres, restaurants and shopping opportunities.
Communication links are excellent with good connections via the A38 to the M5 and A30, and on to the national motorway network. There are regular rail services to London from Newton Abbot and Exeter St Davids as well as Exeter International Airport nearby.
