The popular small town of Chudleigh still retains a village atmosphere with lots of community spirit and character, surrounded by unspoilt Devon countryside. Chudleigh sits between Exeter and Newton Abbot, close to the edge of Dartmoor National Park and in the popular Teign Valley. Dartmoor National Park is best known for its striking granite tors, steep wooded river valleys and heather covered moorland, offering a wide selection of recreational opportunities such as walking, cycling, riding and fishing on the River Dart. Many of the region's finest beaches are within easy driving distance. The well regarded Chudleigh Primary School is located in the town along with regular bus services. For secondary schools you have the popular Teign School in Kingsteignton. Chudleigh offers a wealth of local amenities including shops, a cricket field, a swimming pool, football pitches, allotments, parks, grade 1 listed parish church, two doctors’ surgeries, a dentist and a library. For larger shops there are supermarkets in Kingsteignton, Newton Abbot and Exeter. The market towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot have mainline railway stations with direct links to London Paddington, along with Exeter St David’s Station. There is also an international airport in Exeter. The A38 (Devon Expressway), which by-passes the town, provides good access to Plymouth, Exeter and the M5 motorway network. The A380 connects Torbay.
