LOCATION 11 St Johns Close is pleasantly situated in a cul de sac of similarly-styled properties, being "tucked away" and yet close to the heart of this popular estuary village. Bishopsteignton is highly desirable and has a strong sense of community, with the village being set above and beside the beautiful Teign Estuary. The village has many local amenities to include a Post Office/store, a chemist, a garden centre, a church, a village hall, two public houses, a local real ale brewery, a vineyard and the Cockhaven Arms Hotel. Additionally there is a well-regarded primary school. The seaside town of Teignmouth is around 2-miles away, with a lovely promenade, a sandy beach and a wide range of shops and amenities to include two supermarkets, a mainline railway station, a secondary school and Trinity School offering private education. The estuary offers good boating opportunities and Teignmouth golf course is also only 2-miles away set on the hills above the village. Good accessibility is enjoyed to the A380, making for a fast commute to the cathedral city and county town of Exeter with it's International Airport and red brick University.
