Buckfastleigh Buckfastleigh, on the south-eastern edge of Dartmoor, is a small and interesting market town and originally an important wool centre. The town has a full range of facilities and amenities, including a primary school, churches and easy access to the A38 Expressway. The immediate area has several important visitor attractions including Buckfast Abbey, the South Devon Railway, the Butterfly Farm and Otter Sanctuary, and the Valiant Soldier, formerly a Dartmoor pub and now a museum with a fifties theme. Buckfastleigh Church is at the heart of some of Dartmoor's ghostly legends, one of which was the inspiration for Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles.
The area is host to a wide choice of recreational activities with Dartmoor on the doorstep, the coast within easy reach and both Plymouth and Exeter easily accessible. The historic Elizabethan town of Totnes is within about 6 miles and has a mainline railway station offering services to Plymouth, Exeter and on to Bristol, Cardiff and London.
