Moving to Tavistock

Are you be moving to Tavistock? The small market town is situated in West Devon and is ideal for commuting to Plymouth.

A Farmers’ Market takes place in the Square each fortnight and has been voted Best Farmer’s Market in the South West.


Ideally you will need a car if you move here. The nearest station is five miles away in the small town of Gunnislake and it will take 45 minutes to reach Plymouth by train. By car you can get there in 30 minutes. Exeter International Airport is 36 miles by car.
