Why Move to Tavistock

It is the largest town in West Devon.
Interestingly, Tavistock can trace its recorded history back to at least 961 when Tavistock Abbey, whose ruins lie in the centre of the town, was founded. Sir Francis Drake was born here in 1542. Not your typical high street, the old streets radiate from Bedford Square and contain some very unique stores offering both residents and visitors a choice of eclectic local independent shops.

The town has a leisure centre, a theatre, plenty of pubs and restaurants plus a very popular market, Granted its Market Charter from Henry I in 1105, it still runs to this day and is open Tuesday to Saturday, plus Mondays in the summer. Nicely placed on the edges of the wild terrain of Dartmoor, ideal for walking, cycling, and riding. Several National Trust properties are within easy reach, Lydford Gorge, Buckland Abbey and Cotehele are all nearby.
Those energetic and fit enough, the National Cycle Route runs near the town where you can cycle all the way into Plymouth or you can opt to just do a few miles, it’s a wonderful way to discover the area.
