The town provides a comprehensive range of both business and leisure facilities including the Green Lane shopping centre, out of town superstores, live theatre, leisure centre, Tarka tennis centre and a Sprinter train service running through to the Cathedral City of Exeter.

Within a couple of miles of the property there are leisure facilities with paint ball, laser shooting and quad bikes at South Down, with the town of Great Torrington some 4 miles to the south providing good local facilities with the Plough theatre, golf course and fishing on the River Torridge and of course the North Devon coastline with sailing, surfing and sandy beaches close by at Instow, Westward Ho and Croyde.
