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 has a small junior school and pre-school, a village hall, and a central square. It has had a football team for many years which now hosts three teams spanning ages from under-10s to under-16s. The under-16s finished third in the Pioneer Youth League in 2019. A public bus service runs through Ugborough, 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 to many of the village's children. Ugborough is 2 miles (3.2 km) from the Devon Expressway, the A38. The bulk of the village encircles 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 had a population of 1,884 in 2011, includes a number of settlements other than the village such as Bittaford, Wrangaton (which once had a railway station), Cheston, and Moorhaven Village. To the southeast of Ugborough, still within the parish, is Fowlescombe Manor. Modern day Ugborough is home to the Ivybridge railway station which was reopened in 1994. It was reopened east of Ivybridge so that residents of Ugborough and Wrangaton could easily access it.
