Aveton Gifford lies on the western bank of the River Avon, deep in the South Hams in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is probably best known for its 15th Century bridge which was built to replace the ancient ford. There is a public house with a restaurant, church, nursery/primary school, village shop and it is on the bus route. The village also has a tennis club, a children’s playground, and a large green all within walking distance including the Avon River and Estuary which is renowned for its abundance of wildfowl and it is navigable downstream to Bantham and out to sea, tide permitting. The Georgian town of Modbury with a variety of shops lies to the north and Kingsbridge, which offers more comprehensive shopping facilities lies to the south. The nearest sandy beaches are Bigbury on Sea, Bantham and Burgh Island, surrounded by outstanding scenery and cliff tops of the South Hams coastline, much of which is now owned by the National Trust. Also nearby are the sailing centres based at Salcombe and Newton Ferrers, as well as 18 hole golf courses at Bigbury and Thurlestone. Dartmoor National Park is several miles to the north and provides a backdrop to the area which must surely rank as one of the most beautiful in the country.
