The Parish of Brayford is situated on the south-western boundary of Exmoor and includes a part of the National Park. Brayford is in a highly picturesque location, bounded by green fields and woodlands, and situated in a steep sided valley, with the River Bray running through the middle of the village and acting as a focal point. The River Bray rises on Exmoor, near Challacombe, and tumbles down to 470 feet above sea level where it flows through the village, then joins the River Mole south-west of South Molton, and finally the River Taw which eventually sweeps through Barnstaple to the sea. The hills are populated with livestock as this is well known sheep and cattle country, and the famous red deer of Exmoor are commonly seen too.
The nearest pub is the Poltimore Arms, a short drive east from the village and renowned for its hospitality and excellent cuisine.
The nearest town for groceries, fruit and veg shop and butcher is South Molton, which is approximately 7 miles away.
Basic supplies, such as milk, bread etc. are available from The Poltimore Arms (the local pub) or Bratton Fleming Shop - both are 3 miles away.
Sainsbury's offer a home delivery service in this area.
