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.

Tiverton, the M5 motorway at Junction 27 and Tiverton Parkway station, which provides a fast Intercity rail link to London Paddington, are both approximately forty-five minutes drive. There is also an international airport at Exeter.
