In the month since the official opening The Burrow has really developed into a hub for the village and local community. Drop in and see for yourself, have an Espresso and slice of cake in the café area, meet your neighbours in the friendly atmosphere. Buy some local produce and see how the shop has expanded since opening. Its well worth a visit...
In December 2001 the village shop and post office in Exbourne with Jacobstowe in rural West Devon closed. This meant that villagers would have to make a journey of at least 5 miles each way to reach the nearest town for shops and services. Now after 10 years of hard work and fund raising the village has its own shop and cafe and its underground.
