SITUATION Ashreigney is a small rural village approximately four miles from Chulmleigh, a small but busy town set in the heart of rural Devon. It is the centre for an active and friendly community and offers a good range of local shops including a butcher, bakery, dairy, newsagent, indian restaurant, florist and antiques shop along with both an 'Outstanding Ofstead' primary school and an excellent secondary school/community college, health centre, dental surgery, Post Office, bank, churches, library, two public houses, a community run Sports Centre and a short 18 hole golf course. The market town of South Molton to the north and Crediton to the south both offer a more comprehensive range of facilities and the local railway station at Eggesford, 2 miles, provides a rail link between Exeter and Barnstaple. Road link is via the A377 or the North Devon Link Road, which can be easily accessed at South Molton. Barnstaple, North Devon's regional centre, and the Cathedral and University City of Exeter both offer the wide range of shopping, amenities and facilities one would expect from the county's principal town and city. Tiverton, the M5 motorway at Junction 27 and Tiverton Parkway station, providing a fast Intercity rail link to London Paddington, are both approximately forty-five minutes drive. There is also an international airport at Exeter.

There are excellent recreational and sporting facilities in the area with a range of Leisure Centres at Tiverton, Crediton and Barnstaple, near-by tennis courts and clubs, local rugby, football and cricket clubs, fishing in the rivers Taw and Torridge, further near-by golf courses at Libbaton, High Bullen and Down St Mary, excellent walking and riding in all directions, racecourses at Haldon Exeter and Newton Abbot, and sailing and water sports on North Devon's scenic and rugged coastline, being approximately three-quarters of an hour's drive.
