Ugborough is a vibrant and welcoming community based in an essentially rural village in the South Hams. With a strong farming tradition, the village is now close enough to the A38 to allow commuting to both Plymouth and Exeter and, with rail links through Ivybridge and Totnes, some villagers also work part-time in London. However, the strong community sense of belonging and involvement continues with lots of activities taking place within the village itself.
These are some of the local organisations within Ugborough - there are also lots of local clubs and groups listed here
Ugborough and Bittaford PreSchool
A committee led pre-school that first opened in Ugborough in 1994 and amalgamated with Bittaford in 2009. They offer wrap-around care with Breakfast Club and After-school Club between the hours of 8am and 6pm five days a week, term time only.
There are a variety of family run businesses in the area including Ugborough Garage, farms selling eggs and seasonal foods, local producers also sell their goods at the Ugborough Sustainable Saturday events - see USS.
Villages within the parish
Moorhaven Village is in an elevated position to the north of the Parish above Bittaford. It was originally a Victorian hospital but the properties were transformed into about 100 houses set in 65 acres.
