Cullompton is a small Devon town, a stone’s throw from the M5 for easy access to the commercial and retail centres of Exeter, Taunton, and Bristol. This is a busy little town with a broad range of facilities and a lovely rural backdrop. The Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is to the east and rural mid-Devon spreads out to the north. The nearest train stations are at Tiverton Parkway on the South West main line, and Pinhoe on the Exeter to Waterloo line. There are good local routes to some of East Devon's favourite places, for example, Honiton, and Sidmouth on the Jurassic Coast.

Travel and transport

The M5 is the main connection for Cullompton, the key link for Devon and Somerset, connecting Bristol with Exeter. It’s an asset for business and private travel. The A373 links with Honiton and the A30, and then the A303. There’s a good cross-country route to Tiverton from the town. Public transport relies on the local bus services, with 14 routes to the surrounding towns and villages such as Tiverton, Bradninch, and Willand, as well as into Exeter. It only takes 15 minutes to drive to Exeter Airport, and  Bristol Airport is just over an hour away.

Local information

As with all small towns, there's a balance of independent and national retail businesses, cafes and pubs, and Cullompton's high street represents just that. On the outskirts of the town, there's a Tesco superstore and garage, and there's an ALDI in the town. The Culm Valley Sports Centre is another local facility

Local schools

Cullompton's secondary-age students attend the local Community College. There are two primary schools, St Andrew’s and Willowbank, which feed into the community college, as do the primary schools in the surrounding villages. For independent education, a private bus service takes students to Exeter School.
