It is also only 4 miles from the harbour town of Bideford and also benefits from being only 15 minutes drive from a number of sandy beaches such as Westward Ho! Instow and Saunton Sands. The historical town of Great Torrington, home to the famous Dartington Crystal is also only 15 minutes drive away.
