The village has a post office/general store and tea room, together with two public houses and the well regarded South Tawton Primary School. The village has a strong community spirit with many activities throughout the year. There are regular bus services to and from Exeter and easy access can be gained to the A30 dual carriageway at nearby Whiddon Down. The former market town of Okehampton is some 5 miles distant and offers an excellent range of amenities, three supermarkets (including a Waitrose) nationally and locally owned shops, hospital and a leisure centre in the attractive setting of Simmons Park. There is schooling from infant to A-level standard and various sports and leisure facilities including thriving rugby and football clubs, as well as tennis, squash and bowls. The Dartmoor National Park is easily accessible from South Zeal via footpaths and bridleways and offers hundreds of square miles of superb unspoilt scenery with many opportunities for riding, walking and outdoor pursuits.
