About Chudleigh

Surrounded by unspoilt Devon countryside, modern Chudleigh retains a charm of earlier days with it's narrow lanes, footpaths, pretty cottages and nooks and passages making this lively bustling town a great place to live, work, explore and enjoy whatever the time of year.

Meander down it's flourishing main street where instead of 'all the usual shops' you will find a wealth of choice offered from local trades people, enabling you to find just about anything, from everyday grocery items to the more unusual gift or craft item for someone special, or perhaps a water colour or oil painting, furniture or antiques, photographer, post office, bakery, hardware shop, newsagent, delicatessen, butcher, pet shop, greengrocers, you name it, Chudleigh has it.

Chudleigh Library

Chudleigh also offers a wide range of other services, from estate agents to public houses, holiday accommodation to Vets, doctors and dentist surgeries. The public library is situated within a large convenient car park that provides easy access to all parts of the town.

Chudleigh Fore Street

The Chudleigh summer carnival and the Christmas late night shopping festival are just two of the many events held throughout the year that are wholeheartedly supported by both businesses in the area and the community as a whole.


With plenty to see and do around the charming countryside that surrounds Chudleigh, where both beauty and history go hand in hand, it's no wonder so many people decide to make Chudleigh their home, confident in the knowledge that the local authorities, environmental groups, local residents and most importantly local business people are all working hard to make Chudleigh a town that be-fits the requirements of the 21st century.
