Not far from Tiverton and Exeter, Cullompton is a small market town in Devon on the River Culm, so now you know where the name comes from. It's fair to say it's a quiet place; there are a couple of streets with shops selling local goods and produce, and once a month there's a farmer’s market that gets people out and about, mingling and chatting to create a convivial atmosphere.
Cullompton has a lot of historic buildings, with over 90 in the parish being Grade II listed; 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. If you're staying nearby on your large group holiday in Devon you might want to pop into town to stock up on provisions and have a little browse round. If you're interested in the town's history there's a heritage trail you could do, which takes you along th Mill Leat and past some of the more notable buildings, like the Spanish influenced Roman Catholic church. You might even feel inclined to stop for tea and cake, so go to The Bakehouse, or for pub food, to The Weary Traveller.
Just outside of Cullompton are Diggerland Devon and The Bear Trail, both great fun for days out.
