About the Development
Despite its close proximity to Newton Abbot, Kingsteignton is proudly a separate town in its own right, with a wealth of facilities, clubs and societies. In fact, such is the local pride, that it changed from being Britain’s largest village to being a town, just to protect its individual identity – which tells you all you need to know about how positively people view living there.
At the head of the Teign Estuary, surrounded by delightful Devon countryside, yet just two miles from mainline rail services to London at Newton Abbot, Moorland Reach, Kingsteignton is perfectly placed for you and your family. It won’t take long before you find yourself sharing the pride of this special south Devon town yourself.
