  Nearby Fairlynch Museum is housed in a thatched building and was erected in the early 19th century.

It has a turret from which its original owner could watch the progress of cargo ships.

Another local attraction is the Bicton Park Botanical Gardens.

Not far away is East Budleigh – birthplace of Sir Walter Raleigh in 1552.
