Find cottages in ChulmleighVisit Chulmleigh

With its historic church, thatched cottages and traditional old inns, the village of Chulmleigh in North Devon is almost a throwback to days gone by. Time really does seem to stand still here.

Despite being only 20 miles from the city of Exeter, Chulmleigh is located on a remote hilltop in the midst of the beautiful Devon countryside. The overall atmosphere here is one of peace and tranquillity.

The village's location, midway between Exmoor and Dartmoor, means that there are plenty of opportunities for hikers and mountain bikers to take in the country air. The Chulmleigh Golf Course is one of the finest short courses in the area, while for those who enjoy less strenuous pursuits; fishing is a popular activity here. For a day out with a difference, try the nearby Quince Honey Farm, which is the largest of its type in the country. Here you can observe the fascinating behaviour of honey bees as they go about their work.

Despite its compact size, Chulmleigh has an array of places to eat and drink, including a number of restaurants and delightfully traditional pubs. The village also has a couple of convenience stores and a newsagent to keep you topped up with supplies.

If you wish to escape the rush of everyday life and relax in truly tranquil surroundings, consider holiday cottages in Chulmleigh for your next break.
