There is easy access to the Boys and Girls Grammar Schools in Torquay and the new South Devon highway offers fast links to Exeter and beyond. The traditional market town of Newton Abbot is about 3.5 miles and offers comprehensive shopping facilities, further educational provision and a mainline station.
