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.
DIRECTIONS: Upon entering the village via Polson Hill, pass The London Inn on your right and take the right hand fork, follow this road down and Wood Lane is found at the bottom, turn right into Wood Lane and No. 5 will be found along on your left.
