Welcome to Sherford

Sherford is a new community being developed in the heart of Devon. With planning spanning over 20 years, Sherford is now closer than ever before, with the first residents already moved in. With the aspiration of having its own unique identity and atmosphere, the community is set to become one of the most thriving and social market towns in the region.

Located on the Eastern outskirts of the lively city of Plymouth, Sherford will occupy over 1,200 acres of farmland between the A38 and A379. Set in one of the country’s most picturesque locations, Sherford will both respect and enhance the surrounding landscape - making it one of the most desirable places to live and work for 12,000 residents.
