About the neighborhood
Golden Lion house is very easy to find. Simply look for the house with the Golden Lion to the front above the front porch as you drive down East Street. On edge of Dartmoor and near Torquay.


All of the shops are simply 2 minutes walk down the hill.
The Hound of the Baskervilles is the nearest pub which does very good food. Just down the street on the right hand side. On left up the street is the Brick House which is a cosy cafe with nice food.
