A Mid Devon market town on the River Culm, hence its name, not far from Exeter and Tiverton. A couple of streets with shops selling local goods and produce, and a monthly farmer’s market get people out and about in the streets, mingling and chatting to create a convivial atmosphere. The town has a lot of historic buildings, with over 90 in the parish having Grade II listed status; seven of those are in the town centre which is itself a conservation area. Most remarkable are the architecturally impressive parish church and a 17th century house known as The Walronds which is used as an event venue.
It's not bad if you like mooching around towns when you’re on holiday, or need to stock up on provisions; you could always try The Bakehouse for tea and cake whilst you’re here.
