Ugborough is a village and civil parish in South Hams in the English county of Devon. It has a large church with a history going back to 1121. It also contains a small junior school and pre-school, a village hall and a central square. A public bus service runs through Ugborough (on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), as does a bus to the local secondary school at Ivybridge. It holds a fair every year in July, with traditional games and stalls. More recently a Youth Group has been set up, catering for many of the village's children. Ugborough is 2 miles (3.2 km) from the Devon Expressway the A38. The main bulk of the village is situated encircling a central village square. In the village hall, which doubles as a pre-school, various entertainments are held mainly in the summer months ranging from live music to themed evenings.

The parish, which has a population of 1,736,[1] includes a number of settlements other than the village such as Bittaford, Wrangaton (which once had a railway station), Cheston and Moorhaven Village[2][3] To the southeast of Ugborough, within the parish, is Fowlescombe Manor.
