Sandford is a civil parish and village 1½ miles north of Crediton, with a historic 12th Century Church. It has an old -world feel, with slender twisting streets, flanked by antique thatched cottages – displaying a menagerie of “Beatrix Potter” style perennial gardens. At the village heart sits a 16thCentury Post House, enshrined by creepers – this is now ‘The Lamb Inn’, an award winning pub/ restaurant; with a rustic aesthetic and cheerful spirit. Featured in ‘The Daily Mail’s – 20 Best British Country Pubs’ (2015). Across the way from here is the shop/ post office, run by the local community. Community is something that underpins every aspect of Sandford, including the local sporting events. Residents have a choice of things to do: such as joining the village cricket, tennis, football and rugby clubs. For the kids, Sandford has a highly sought after pre-school and a primary school (known for its classic Greek-style architecture). Older ones fall within the direct catchment for Q.E.C.C. in Crediton (with an Ofsted “outstanding” Sixth Form). Sandford is linked to Crediton via a footpath, then runs through the Millennium Green on the outskirts of the village – past a wildflower meadow, herb garden, over a crystal stream, yonder tilled fields to a little copse at the town’s-edge.
DIRECTIONS : From Crediton, head North out of the town up Jockey Hill and down the other side, bearing right to the village of Sandford. As you enter the village, turn right on the sharp left hand bend into Mill Lane and the cottage will be found on your left.
