NEWTON ST CYRES, between Exeter and Crediton is widely regarded as one of Devon's finest villages, with a gentle stream running through the middle under its ancient stone bridge, alongside the wonderful 15th Century church built in honour of the martyr St Cyres, there are few places which match this tranquil setting. Numerous circular walks of 1.25 to 7.2 miles are on hand and a visit to the beautiful 9 acre arboretum is a must. The new primary school is a fantastic addition & no village is complete without a pub and Newton St Cyres does not disappoint with the atmospheric Beer Engine, a popular watering hole on the Rail Ale Trail, a tour of pubs near stations along the Tarka Line railway between Exeter and Barnstaple. The recently opened Belluno Italian Restaurant is also one to visit and cheese lovers can indulge themselves at Quickes Farm shop, based half a mile west along the A377, the main road to North Devon. These outstanding features are supplemented by that iconic symbol of the English village, the cricket pitch. The crack of leather on willow fills the air when the village team play in the summer months. Footballers don’t miss out either - there are two well-maintained pitches, home to Newton St Cyres FC.
