Black Torrington is located within North Devon local authority area but is in fact in West Devon. It is well located for the local market town of Hatherleigh (5 miles) and for Greater Torrington and Bideford to the north, and Okehampton to the south.

The setting of the village is superbly rural, with good country walks and roads, offering great views of the countryside and sweeping panoramas of west Devon.

Historically it formed part of Braunton Hundred. It falls within Holsworthy Deanery for ecclesiastical purposes.

The village is dominated by Broad Street, and possesses a typically Devonshire rural charm.
