Crapstone is a village in the county of Devon. The village is located on the edge of Dartmoor and is approximately 1 mile from the village of Yelverton, 9 miles from the city of Plymouth and 5 miles from Tavistock.
In 2007 Crapstone was used as the name of the village in a television advert for the RAC. Local residents started a protest group on the social networking site Facebook complaining that the village used in the television advert was not actually Crapstone but a location using its name. One member of the group has stated that the location for filming was near ‘The Pimple’ at Tavistock; however none of this was mentioned in the advert; not even in small print. via Wiki

The partly tree lined setting forms part of a quality residential area within the village of Crapstone, very close to the south west fringe of the Dartmoor National Park, north of Plymouth. Roborough Down, with its wide open space of moorland, lies only about 100 yards away.
The village is about one mile from the National Trust Buckland Abbey and is also about a mile from the larger village of Yelverton which offers a wide range of shops, health centre, recreation ground, churches and other facilities. Yelverton Golf Club is about a mile distant.
Crapstone itself includes a small number of local shops and businesses while at Buckland Monachorum, a mile way, there is a local pub, church and a well respected primary school. The Crescent is possibly the most desirable part of the village, with quiet surroundings and seclusion offered by established trees and mature gardens, which also protect the property.
