Rivervale Close is located on the banks of the River Teign where the buildings used to be a woollen mill and workers cottages. It is a supremely tranquil setting with the sound of the river and mill race offering a great background track to the birdsong. It is about a half mile to the bustling town square where there is a wide variety of day to day and specialist shops, four pubs and cafes. Chagford has a Primary school, pre-school and Montessori school, a library, Parish church, Roman Catholic church and chapel and surgeries for doctor, dentist and vet. From Rivervale there is easy access to riverside walks, and surrounding the town there are countryside and moorland walks. Sports facilities include a football and cricket pitch with a pavilion, a gym, tennis club, bowling club, skate park and an open air swimming pool in the summertime. The A30 dual carriageway is about 5 miles away and Exeter is approximately 20 miles.
