The property occupies what feels to be a semi rural residential position but is within easy walking distance of local public house on the Newton Road where there will be a new Edginswell train stop that connects Newton Abbot, Exeter and London beyond. It is also within easy reach of The Willows with their array of shops, facilities and amenities and also within close reach to the newly constructed by-pass which connects Newton Abbot, Exeter and the M5 beyond.
