Set in the exquisite Culm Valley, the rural market town of Cullompton has been a centre of farming life for centuries. Local producers sell their food at the local award-winning farmer’s market, plus the Pannier Market and street market make shopping a vibrant, seasonal adventure.

Aside from shopping, your new home has a tight-knit community with plenty of amenities for people looking for an established town. There are good schools from nursery to college, GP and dental surgeries, a rugby club and leisure centre. Walking and cycling trails crisscross the local countryside with the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, right on the doorstep.

Living in Cullompton

Town living at its best

Your new house benefits from the tree-lined high street packed with local shops, cafés and takeaways. There are two supermarkets, a Sports Centre and the Skatepark. You'll find the National Trust Killerton House and the 900-year-old Bickleigh Castle. Children will also love The Bear Trail and Diggerland Devon.  There are four pre-schools, two primary schools, St Andrew’s and Willowbank, and the Cullompton Community College taking care of secondary education for the town and surrounding villages.

Getting around town

Commutes from your new house are easy, with Bristol (67 miles), Bridgewater (30 miles), Taunton (21 miles) and Exeter (13 miles) all along the M5. Little Tom's Road takes you to Tiverton (6 miles), while the A373 takes you in the opposite direction to Honiton (12 miles). Public transport relies on the local bus services, with 14 routes to the surrounding towns and villages such as Tiverton, Bradninch and Willand, as well as into Exeter. 

Entertaining the family

Exeter is Devon's county capital, with a pleasantly compact shopping centre, a cathedral, cinemas, bowling and more. Head to The Quay from your new home for bustling cafés and pubs, canoe and bike hire, or take a train to Exmouth's golden sandy beaches - an eight-mile journey through some of Devon's prettiest countryside. Your new build in has the gorgeous Killerton House and gardens nearby for a peaceful mooch and afternoon tea, but if you fancy a hike, the Ashclyst Forest has 800 acres of trails and woodland for you to explore.
