It has a good range of facilities including a fine Victorian parish church, built from materials from a previous church at Dartington Hall, a post office/general stores, primary school, community centre, garage and public house. There is also a playing field, a nature trail along the attractive Bidwell Brook and the popular Cider Press Centre. The village is best known for Dartington Hall, its literature festivals and the many cultural facilities and events that it offers. The A38, within ten minutes' drive, connects to the M5 at Exeter.
Totnes, within about 2 miles, is known as an Elizabethan town but has much earlier origins with a castle, a wonderful position on the River Dart and a main line railway station.
