We reviewed this property several years ago and have nothing to add except, perhaps, that parking has become more difficult so we resorted to using the pay and display (several hundred yards into Buckfastleigh) BUT if you are parking after 6pm and moving your vehicle...More

About the neighbourhood
BUCKFASTLEIGH

A small market town on the old route between Exeter and Plymouth, Buckfastleigh was a centre for the wool trade for most of its history. The mid 19th century was the town's most prosperous period, when there were seven mills active, supplemented by some coaching inns for travellers to and from Plymouth.
