Your guide to living in Kennford
As local Kennford estate agents, we’re in love with this charming little village situated in the wonderful county of Devon. To share the love, we have created you a guide to living in Kennford, to inform you of everything you need to know if you’re thinking about moving to the area!
Kennford is seen as the ideal family-friendly place thanks to the local school, Kennford C of E Primary, encouraging a thriving and close-knit community. The village also boasts an excellent pre-school, Kennford Playbox, with high standards of care and education at their heart. The small yet vibrant community will make anyone feel at home in no time and, with such great schools right on your doorstep, it’s the ideal place to raise your family.
Average house price
The delightful village is host to an exciting range of houses, suitable to all circumstances! Much like the village itself, every property holds character, helping the village to achieve a picturesque quality. Whilst the average house price is£290,857, the variety of house prices makes the location an option for many people looking on the market. As Kennford estate agents, we’ve found the houses here to be competitively priced, so if you’re looking for your new family home or maybe a place to unwind in your retirement, we’re sure Kennford is the perfect place for you.
It was really hard for us to think of the best café in Kennford because the choice is just too great! The village is home to many independent and unique little cafés that we have no doubt anyone would fall in love with. However, we do have a special place in our heart for the Orange Elephant Ice Cream Parlour. The farm-based ice-cream parlour is home to perhaps some of the best homemade ice cream in the world, let alone in Kennford! Estate agents or not, everyone loves a good ice cream so this really is a top attraction!
Best place to eat?
Anyone that is familiar with Kennford will have undoubtedly heard of The Seven Stars Pub. This local has a hearty menu of dishes to enjoy, coupled with a great atmosphere and friendly staff. We’re sure it’ll quickly become a favourite haunt!
Things to do on the weekend?
Wondering what you can do during your days off in Kennford? Estate agents know it’s all about location, location, location and thankfully, Kennford is ideally located in Devon, which is home to numerous attractions. Just a short car journey away is the beautiful Dartmoor. The highlight of the county, the national park is a great day out for anyone, young or old!
