GOOD TO KNOW

Holbeton is a quaint village situated in the heart of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It is a great launchpad and homebase from which to explore the nature of South Hams, Dartmoor and Devon’s famous coastline.

Holbeton centres around the local pub, the Mildmay Colours, a village shop and post office, a thriving primary school and a 13th Century church.

Alongside the Village Hall, Holbeton boasts a Community Orchard, allotments, play park and a sports field and Croquet Club in Battisborough Cross.

There are a growing number of clubs and societies in Holbeton, which can be found here ( LOCAL GROUPS ). 

The beautiful, quiet beaches of Mothecombe and the Yealm estuary are less than two miles away and the larger beaches/towns of Salcombe, Dartmouth, Torquay and Bigbury are all within a 25 mile radius and we are right on the doorstep of the magnificent Dartmoor. 

Mothecombe gardens are also nearby, alongside hundreds of pathways for walking groups of all abilities.
