South Zeal is a highly desirable Dartmoor National Park village which lies approximately 17 miles west of Exeter and 5 miles east of Okehampton. There are an excellent range of local amenities including a well renowned primary school, village stores, post office, church, recreation/playing field and two popular public houses. A more comprehensive range of local shopping and amenities can be found in Okehampton.
