Kitley Estate


Lowland plains

Variable inland areas within South Devon, to the east of Plymouth, not directly associated with river valleys.


  • Level to gently rolling plains
  • Densely settled, with a mixed pattern of residential development and isolated farms with extensive outbuildings
  • Local dominance of stone as building material, but great variety of materials and styles throughout
  • Mixed farmland, with arable just dominant and many other land uses, including extensive extractive industry
  • Irregular medium to large-scale field pattern
  • Very treed field boundaries with low roadside hedges
  • Small discrete woodlands and linear amenity planting
  • Sparse highway network
  • Long views marred by pylons and communication masts
