Situated halfway between Paignton and Totnes, it is perfectly positioned to take advantage of all that South Devon has to offer. There are walks galore close-by or, in half an hour, you can be on Dartmoor with a vast area of open countryside for pleasure and solitude.
Within a few minutes drive are several beaches, safe for children, or any number of small bays and rocky coves. Broadleigh is close to the small village of Stoke Gabriel, where there is a shop, pubs and a Post Office; it sits on the banks of the River Dart. In the opposite directions, just a few minutes away, lie Paignton, Brixham and Torquay with many restaurants, bars and shops. Just a little further are Plymouth and Exeter.
