DIRECTIONS From Crediton take the A3072 towards Tiverton for about 4 miles. 5 Turn left at Coffin Tree Cross (as signposted Cheriton Fitzpaine) and follow this country lane for about a mile and a half, until arriving in the village. Drakes Meadow will be seen on the left as you enter the village Number 1a is the first house on your left
Cheriton Fitzpaine sits in a vast and hilly lowland region of Devon, 9 miles from the City of Exeter and 1.5 miles northeast of the Crediton/ Tiverton A3072 road – a route that could be argued to be one of the most stunning sunset drives in the county. The village appears timeless and has many listed cottages with the classic poured custard thatched roofs. Notably there’s also a gothic church, known for its hard edges and sharp peaks. There are two pubs, The Ring of Bells and The Half Moon Inn – both of which are unique, but equally Devonian in spirit. Cheriton Fitzpaine is a substantial size and has a multi-million pound primary school, a Doctor’s surgery and a post office. Local children are fortunate to be able to use (acquire grass stains in!) and shoot hoops in ‘Jack’s Acre’, a large playing field/ park maintained by the parish council. For foodies ‘Thornes Farm Shop’ is nearby, and is home to some exceptional quality, homegrown produce. What’s not to like?
