MORCHARD BISHOP is a village and civil parish set in the sumptuous hills and valleys of Mid-Devon, halfway between the North and South of the County, 7 miles west of Crediton and 14 miles from the regional capital, Exeter. The showpiece is the spectacular 16th Century Church of St Mary's, one of two churches in the village. This small but thriving community, with a population of just under 1000 has a primary school, doctor's surgery and local shops. Those who lead an active lifestyle can take advantage of the football, netball and outdoor tennis clubs as well as enjoying a game of bowls on the Green. At the centre is the friendly London Inn, loved for its generous servings of delicious, locally sourced food. Dating back 400 years, this traditional pub was once a stop for passing coaches when the main road from Exeter ran through the village. Today, the nearby railway station at Morchard Road carries passengers from Exeter to Barnstaple along the scenic Tarka Line. Dartmoor and Exmoor, areas of outstanding natural beauty are within 30 minutes' drive.
CREDITON : An ancient market town, with a contemporary feel – only a short, 20-minute drive NW from the city of Exeter. Set in the Vale of the River Creedy, amongst gentle, rolling hills and verdant pastures. Sincerely picture postcard. Once the capital of Devon, Crediton is famed for its inspiring sandstone church and for being the birthplace of Saint Boniface in 680 AD. Its high street is a vibrant place, abuzz with trade –artisan coffee shops, roaring pubs, a farmers’ market and bakeries, jam-packed with mouthwatering delights. For those commuting it has hassle free transport links into Exeter and for schooling a prestigious community college (Queen Elizabeth’s) – with an Ofsted “outstanding” sixth form. In addition, it boasts a brilliant gym & leisure centre for New Year’s resolutions, two supermarkets for the weekly shop and a trading estate for any practical needs. All neatly held in a single valley.
