Persimmon Homes


Cullompton is a small Devon town that is having a bit of a renaissance. With new families moving in and new businesses coming to the high street, it’s a great place to make your new home. It’s got that sought-after balance of being a community with plenty of amenities in its own right, at the same time as being a stone’s throw from the M5 for easy access to Exeter and Taunton. Cullompton is a busy little place with a very rural backdrop. The Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty are to the east and rural mid-Devon spreads out to the west.

Living here

There’s a lovely tree-lined high street with lots of local shops, cafés and takeaways. There’s also a Tesco superstore right on the edge of the town but still within walking distance, and an ALDI within the town. The Culm Valley Sports Centre and Cullompton Skatepark are close to the town’s Community College. There are two primary schools, St Andrew’s and Willowbank, which feed into the community college, as do the primary schools in the surrounding villages.

Getting around

The M5 is of course the main connection for Cullompton. It is the key link for Devon and Somerset, connecting Bristol with Exeter. It’s an asset to have on the doorstep if you need to commute for work. The A373 links with Honiton and the A30, and there’s a good cross-country route to Tiverton from the town. 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. It only takes just over 15 minutes to drive to Exeter Airport and for a wider range of flights, Bristol Airport is just over an hour away.

Entertaining the family

Exeter is the county capital, and it offers something for everyone, from retail to restaurants, from culture to cinema. It’s a lovely historic city, just half an hour away, with a centre that’s compact enough to explore on foot and the Quay for bustling cafés and pubs, canoe and bike hire. For a peaceful walk or a park run, the gardens at the National Trust’s Killerton House are just up the road at Broadclyst and the Ashclyst Forest has 800 acres of trails and woodland to explore.
