Nichols Nymet House is situated about a mile and a half from North Tawton, one of the smallest towns in England and is located in the centre of Devon close to the northern edge of Dartmoor. A market town from 1374 until recently, it continues as a busy centre for the local community. The ancient High Street has many useful amenities including several pubs, a useful mini supermarket, a Post Office, Graylings award winning Fish & Chip restaurant and Take-away, as well as other retailers, and three churches. The recent BBC series "Jam and Jerusalem" starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley was filmed in the town.
