CHERITON BISHOP is a village situated at the northern borders of Dartmoor National Park – between the City of Exeter and the town of Okehampton. The farmlands adjoining Cheriton undulate with true Devon character, gradually rising towards Dartmoor, where altitudes creep to heights in excess of 1000 ft above sea level. The village is ideally placed for hassle free access to the A30 dual carriageway, a direct injection into Exeter (10 miles) and a great route west to Cornwall. Facilities include, a parish church, two prosperous inns, a primary school and a Doctor’s surgery. Fancy sloshing a drink around and wiggling to a beat? For music lovers: Cheriton hosts two annual festivals at the Woodleigh Coach House – ‘The Gig in The Garden’ and ‘Jam in June’, the perfect opportunity to see some talented local acts.

TEDBURN ST MARY is village located a short drive from Exeter down the A30 (7 miles), and 5 miles across country from Crediton – through winding lanes. Its backdrop is that of high slopes, rounded hillforms and narrowing valleys. For everyday necessities there is a traditional village shop and for the kids a wonderful little primary school. If boredom ever strikes Tedburn presents a wide array of things to get stuck into, including: a drama group and a football club. Need to practice for the Ryder Cup? Or just unwind – ‘Fingle Glen Golf Hotel’ is nearby with an 18-hole golf course and luxurious accommodation. For some dramatic walks, ‘Fingle Bridge’ is only 6 (.2) miles away. Here the Teign River splashes and whirls its way over mossy boulders, through the middle of a precipitous, wooded gulley on the fringes of Dartmoor. Think: ‘The Lord of the Rings’, much of Dartmoor has been inspirational in the approach to ‘Middle Earth’ by the famous “Lotr” concept artist, Alan Lee.
