The villages share a number of facilities including a post office, pharmacy, Co-operative store, three good public houses, two churches, yacht club with bistro, tea-rooms and good Primary School. The holiday retreats and full time residences have found a comfortable balance that propel this thriving community, with countless clubs and activities available for the more sociable and active, or long picturesque walks for those that simply want to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Bus services run to Plymouth city centre which is within easy commuting distance. The main route from Plymouth to Exeter (A38/M5 Devon Expressway) is only a few miles away.
