The village has an annual art festival, and a country fair, a cricket club, a church, village shop and Post Office, farm shop, village primary school, pre-school, village hall and two well-regarded pubs. Thorverton is within the reduced-fee catchment area for Blundell's School.

The pretty village of Silverton is just 3.2 miles away. The village has a pre-school, primary school, post office, church, two public houses, including the renowned Lamb Inn, and a village store. Opportunities for outdoor pursuits are endless: the National Trust Estate of Killerton House is close by, as are the beautiful East, North and South Devon coastlines, and the rugged splendour of the Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks.

Exeter, approximately 6.7 miles away, is the most thriving city in the South West and offers a wide choice of cultural activities with the theatre, the museum, arts centre and a wealth of good restaurants and shopping, including John Lewis and Waitrose. Many well-regarded schools can be found in Exeter, including Exeter School and The Maynard, whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the best universities in the country.

Regular rail services run from Exeter St. Davids (approximately 6 miles from the property) to London Paddington, taking just over two hours.
