Our Area

The Keenor Estate Agent Offices are located in Chulmleigh, a small but busy town set in the heart of rural Devon. It is the centre for an active and friendly community and offers a good range of local shops including a butcher, bakery, deli/cafe, florist and antiques shop along with an excellent Health Centre, a dental surgery, both Church of England and Congregational churches, a library, two public houses, and a superb Bistro. Chulmleigh also benefits from both a Primary School, rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in October 2014, and a Secondary School rated ‘Good’ in February 2015, offering high standards of education from the ages of 3-16. There is a community run Sports Centre including a well equipped Gym offering many well supported clubs including tennis, judo, badminton, table tennis, gymnastics, short mat bowls and football. Chulmleigh even has its own short 18 hole golf course with club house and a Riding School that has been established for over 50 years! Chulmleigh supports many of the outlying villages like Wembworthy, Burrington, Ashreigney, Eggesford and Kings Nympton which are not quite large enough to offer their own facilities but offer quiet country living in the picturesque and unspoilt part of Devon.

The market town of South Molton to the north and Crediton to the south both offer a more comprehensive range of facilities and the local railway station at Eggesford, 2 miles, provides a rail link between Exeter and Barnstaple. Road link is via the A377 or the North Devon Link Road, which can be easily accessed at South Molton. Barnstaple, North Devon’s regional centre, and the Cathedral and University City of Exeter both offer the wide range of shopping, amenities and facilities one would expect from the county’s principal town and city. Tiverton, the M5 motorway at Junction 27 and Tiverton Parkway station, providing a fast Intercity rail link to London Paddington, are both approximately forty-five minute’s drive. There is also an international airport at Exeter.

There are excellent recreational and sporting facilities in the area with further Leisure Centres at Tiverton, Crediton and Barnstaple, near-by tennis courts and clubs, local rugby, football and cricket clubs, fishing in the rivers Taw and Torridge, further near-by golf courses at Libbaton, High Bullen and Down St Mary, excellent walking and riding in all directions, racecourses at Haldon Exeter and Newton Abbot, and sailing and water sports on North Devon’s scenic and rugged coastline, being approximately three-quarters of an hour’s drive.
