Stokenham is a leafy Devon village just a mile from Start Bay and its many unspoilt beaches. There is a primary school in the village which is rated outstanding by Ofsted and a fine parish church. The village is conveniently placed for easy access to Start Bay, Salcombe and Dart estuaries, renowned for their sailing, and is also close to the beautiful South Devon coastline where there is a great selection of beaches.
Located on the A379 between Kingsbridge and Dartmouth, it's easy to reach and just a quick drive to Kingsbridge and Dartmouth, both of which have a wide range of schools, shops, cafés and restaurants. The village has two excellent pubs, both of which have strong reputations for freshly-prepared food and a friendly welcome.
A mile east of Stokenham on the A379, you'll come to Stokeley Farm Shop, which has everything you would expect from a country farm shop, a deli, butchery, restaurant cafe & plant centre. In addition they stock everyday groceries and a wide selection of alcohol, including beer from their own brewery. The nearby village of Chillington just a mile away has its own amenities including a post office and health centre.
