location & lifestyle
Rydon Village is set in a beautiful part of the Country, located in North Devon on the outskirts of the pretty market town of Holsworthy. The historic town itself hosts a weekly pannier market and a thriving livestock mart. Local produce, flowers, gifts and an excellent range of specialist stores are complimented by a Waitrose supermarket. Holsworthy is a friendly, welcoming town with traditional values.
The cities of Exeter and Plymouth, and the town of Newquay, are all within easy reach by road, and offer airports, mainline railway and motorway connections, a host of shopping facilities, and outstanding opportunities for relaxation and leisure. Bowling, cricket and football clubs are all close by, together with a Leisure Centre catering for all manner of sporting interests and activities. Access is available to nearby cycle paths which will eventually link the Tarka Trail and the north Cornish Coast.
There are a number of excellent golf courses in the area, including an 18-hole course minutes away, together with other choices at Bude, Okehampton, Launceston, Bideford and Barnstaple. St Mellion international course is only a 30-minute drive.
Dartmoor National Park, just 35 minutes away, is an environment in which to enjoy the great outdoors, whilst also affording the opportunity to sit, relax and enjoy some of the most stunning scenery in the Country. If lazing on a summers' afternoon is for you, why not enjoy a picnic at picturesque Roadford Lake, the largest pocket of inland water in the region. There is an abundance of water sports including sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and fishing. Just a few miles west is the spectacular Cornish coastline. A wealth of sandy beaches, deserted coves, fascinating birdlife and majestic walks along rugged cliffs abound.
This small, exclusive development provides a secure and quiet location from which to relax or explore. The keynote to Rydon Village is that you can be as busy and adventurous as you choose; or simply relax by the lake and watch the world go by...
