What's in the local area


Gateway Gardens lies just off the main A361 North Devon Link Road, which connects Barnstaple (12 miles) to the M5 (24 miles). Taunton and Exeter are both around 42 miles away, with Plymouth around 85 miles via the M5.

There are regular buses to Barnstaple, and Barnstaple Station has trains to Exeter in just over an hour, where you can link to London in around 2hrs 25mins. Exeter is also home to the closest airport.

Days out

Being a popular holiday destination means that South Molton has lots of interesting and unusual things to do, from a working honey farm to a hands-on chocolate factory experience.

Take a ride back in time on the steam trains of the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway, put your foot down for racing fun at the Barnstaple kart circuit, or take a walk on the wild side at Exmoor Zoological Park.


South Molton retains a delightfully traditional approach to shopping, with a range of classic shops clustered around the town square. Thursday is market day, with a huge choice of stalls, and there is a Pannier Market every Saturday. The local farmers market, held every 4th Sunday is a must for the best in local produce brought in fresh from the farm.

For a more comprehensive selection of shops, Exeter and Taunton are both within an hour’s drive.

Dining out

South Molton has an impressive selection of traditional inns and gastro pubs to choose from including the Stags Head, The Sportsmans and The Bell, as well as quality local hotels such as the High Bullen, the George and Stumbles. The George also hosts a regular Film Society, with classic and current films shown on the big screen from September to April.

“Elan pulled out all the stops, I would definitely recommend Elan Homes. They ticked all the right boxes - we’ve had five star treatment from all of the staff.”

Paul & Margaret

"We chose Elan for the location and the value for money. Living here feels like we’re on holiday, with the endless fields and open countryside. We can walk into South Molton and shop locally, rather than drive to large out of town supermarkets."

Richard & Cinta

“We didn’t want to miss out while we tried to sell our old home and with Part Exchange we didn’t have to. It gave us peace of mind and meant that we didn’t have to worry about getting caught up in a chain that could delay our move.”

Jane & David
