  • Mr Waller

    “Really nice accomodation in an excellent rural location.”

    All the rooms are very well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed staying in a "real" pub which added to the atmosphere.

About the location


Ipplepen 1.3 miles; Newton Abbot 5 miles; Totnes 6 miles; Torquay 8.7 miles.

Torbryan is an ancient farming hamlet nestled in the heart of the South Devon countryside yet not far from Totnes, Dartmoor and the beautiful beaches of the English Riviera. Torbryan has its own 13th century pub and an even older church. Ipplepen, the neighbouring village, is only one mile away and has a small supermarket, a post office and a pub. Both villages of Denbury and Broadhempston are within 2 miles and also have pubs and village shops. Torbryan provides a great base for a cottage holiday and is ideally situated for exploring Devon and the South West. Totnes, only five miles from the village, sits beside the picturesque River Dart, and is steeped in history with its many original Elizabethan buildings. A few excursions from Totnes not to be missed include the breathtakingly beautiful river trip to Dartmouth and the steam train journey along the Primrose Line to Buckfastleigh. Dartington Hall, with its beautiful grounds, is nearby, hosting many music festivals each year. Dartmoor National Park can be reached within 30 minutes' drive of Ipplepen, offering 365 square miles of rugged moorland peppered with isolated villages. Ideal for getting away from it all, walking and simply gazing at the incredible views of South Devon, Torbryan provides the perfect base for your next escape.
