Aveton Gifford lies on the western bank of the River Avon, deep in the South Hams in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is probably best known for its 15th Century bridge which was built to replace the ancient ford. Aveton Gifford is off the beaten track as the by-pass carries all major traffic and the old part of the village is a conservation area. There is a public house with a restaurant, church, nursery/primary school, village shop and it is on the bus route. The village also has a tennis club, cricket club, children’s playground and a large green within walking distance. The Georgian town of Modbury with an interesting variety of shops is to the north and Kingsbridge which has a more comprehensive shopping centre is to the south. To the east lies the Avon River and Estuary which is renowned for its abundance of wild fowl. The River Avon is navigable downstream to Bantham and out to sea, tide permitting. The nearest sandy beaches are Bigbury on Sea, Bantham and Burgh Island, surrounded by outstanding scenery and cliff tops of the South Hams coastline, much of which is now owned by the National Trust. Also nearby are the sailing centres based at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, as well as 18 hole golf courses at Bigbury and Thurlestone. Dartmoor National Park is several miles to the north and provides a backdrop to the area which must surely rank as one of the most beautiful in the country.

From the Modbury office take the A379 towards Kingsbridge for about 4 miles. At the roundabout at Aveton Gifford turn left into Fore Street and the property is on the left just after the Fishermans Rest Pub.

Kingsbridge 4 miles, Plymouth 17 miles, Modbury 4.5 miles (distances approximate)
