Our South Brent Office
South Brent is a large village on the southern edge of Dartmoor, the hills of which affect South Brent’s microclimate. The village itself lies in the valley of the River Avon. It is only five miles from Ivybridge, and lies next to the A38, known as the Devon Expressway, for obvious reasons, which connects Exeter with Plymouth (18 miles away).
Originally a woollen and market centre with two annual fairs, South Brent now lies within the boundaries of Dartmoor National Park. It is a thriving community with shops, public houses, businesses, school, village hall and community centre. Luscombe Maye is the main estate agent active in the village, offering property sales, lettings and agricultural professional services from its South Brent offices.
A railway station serving the village was opened on the South Devon Railway on 15 June 1848. It served as the junction for the branch line to Kingsbridge from 19 December 1893. Unfortunately the station closed in 1964, though for some years there has been a movement to reopen it in order to reduce commuter traffic on the roads.
