The neighbourhood includes Bere Alston, Bere Ferrers, Buckland Monachorum, Crapstone and surrounding villages. It is mainly rural with some moorland, mainly used for intensive livestock farming.

Many residents travel to Plymouth to work, but there are local businesses and significant farming and horticultural enterprises. Most villages are growing, with housing developments underway.

New families are moving in, raising the number of schoolchildren. There are three excellent primary schools at Bere Alston, Buckland and Gulworthy, and most pupils move on to Tavistock College.

This is a very safe place to live with very low crime rates. Most issues centre around minor damage and nuisance behaviour.
