You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Banks

NatWest

Bedford Square, Tavistock PL19 0AQ, UK – 0345 788 8444

This is my local branch bank, I find the customer service always great and I barely have to wait in a line at all. The processes are always very smooth and fast and staff are always attentive. I have an issue with the decor, although a very small issue that doesn't affect the bank stuff, I'd like a refurbished branch store as it is very old fashioned and its design is very poor.

Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Mount Kelly (College)

Parkwood Road, Tavistock PL19 0HZ, UK – 01822 813100

An excellent school in wonderful surroundings. The range of activities available yo students is what makes this school so special. Now with a 50 metre swimming pool and incredible sports facilities. The school merged with Mount House Prep school to become Mount Kelly formerly known as Kelly College. I don't think there are more beautiful school settings than the two sites both also located on the the edge of Dartmoor. Apparently the school was a close second for the Harry Potter film setting. Very good value for what is an outstanding school.

Her level of knowledge is exceptional and I trust her implicitly to give the correct advice and treatment options for the concerns I have in trying to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing appearance . I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her should you be considering any rejuvenation treatments .

In the meantime I continue to see Ellie on a regular basis for a sports massage which has been so beneficial and will be ongoing. Also you reception team are so lovely and friendly. I do and will continue to use and recommend your services.

Superb treatment and caring team. Thank you

Nursery and Preschools

Tavistock Community Primary and Nursery School

Plymouth Rd, Tavistock PL19 8BX, UK – 01822 616044

Its a fantastic school , I have lots of friends are the teachers are amazing. I ispecally love sport and the sport they teach is wonderful.

It is a lovely school there and I was the only Muslim in that school. I started in nursery an d I left when I was in year 4. I had two best friends who cared for me and they are Hannah and Layla.

Mount Kelly (Prep)

Mount Kelly (Prep), Mount Tavy Road, Tavistock PL19 9JL, UK – 01822 612244

This school has a well deserved reputation for an excellent education from Kindergarten to Year 8. The school day runs from 8.10 until 16.30 with loads of after school clubs which run through until 17.30. The grounds are simply stunning. Class sizes are never more than 20 and the care for students is excellent. Sport facilities are superb and since the merger with the senior school, the College has gone from strength to strength.

An amazing school

Primary and Secondary Schools

Whitchurch Community Primary School

School Rd, Tavistock PL19 9SR, UK – 01822 616202

I have two children at this school - I have always found the staff and head approachable and have always done there best to deal with any queries or concerns. Both my children are very happy at the school. I appreciate that at times issues arise and the outcome does not always meet the parents expectations but that does not make it a bad school. The children generally leave Whitchurch, happy, well rounded and with above average grades. The opportunities within Whitchurch make them confident children with good self-esteem. There are many opportunies included sports, drama, cookery clubs, community events and a major asset to the school the fantastic music teacher. I feel all schools have negatives but without a shawdow of a doubt Whitchurch Primary is a positive for the local community of Tavistock. Keep up the good work.

What a great school. My two kids attended this school and we couldn't have been happier with it. They always loved the place, felt part of the community, and they emerged well balanced, happy kids with a solid educational foundation. The negative review from fernie just doesn't sit with my experience. I certainly didn't see the head and the governors wandering around the playground looking for parents to ostracise. We paid for extra tuition, but only for the 11 plus exam and not cos the school was failing to deliver its core teaching. Our kids entered secondary school well prepared and absolutely up to speed with their contemporaries. I would recommend this school to anyone, and frequently do. Just go and have a look, and then find better if you can!

Old Tavistock Railway Station

Quant Park, Tavistock PL19 0JQ, UK – 01822 610136

Wonderful place. Beautifully decorated, great location, lovely views and warm welcome. Still retains lots if features from the original station.

These cottages have the most lovely views of Dartmoor, but they are also very handy for Tavistock town centre, which has some great little independent shops. I thought they were further out than they are, looking at the map before visiting but they are just up the hill, just out of the way enough that they are nice and peaceful. They are rather beautifully fitted out too. Re: the other review about railways: this is actually Tavistock North station - if you look at the proposed re-opening of the Plymouth line, if that happens, it will go in at the other end of the town!

See live train arrival times at any main station in the UK. You will be asked for the station you require information for and then up will come a timetable with details of any late or cancelled or on-time trains and where they stop
