SITUATION (CHULMLEIGH)

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, which provides a fast Intercity rail link to London Paddington, are both approximately forty-five minutes drive. There is also an international airport at Exeter.
