Property Description: SITUATION
Stoke Gabriel is a popular and sought after village which lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the head of a creek on the River Dart about three miles south-east of Totnes. The older part of the village is in a conservation area near the River and Mill Pool and much of the area is a Coastal Preservation Area. The village has good facilities including a church, primary school, pre-school [2 to 5 yrs], village hall, post office, general stores and two public houses. Buyers see Stoke Gabriel as a lifestyle choice both because of the amenties that it offers and its thriving strong family social life and community spirit, with boating, canoeing and river trips on the River Dart on your doorstep. The village boating association also provides RYA sailing training for children and a year round calendar of boating events. DESCRIPTION
