Hotels, B&B's and Self Catering in Crediton

Crediton is a town in Mid Devon, about 7 miles north-west of Exeter. It is situated in the narrow vale of the River Creedy and divided into an old town and new town. Surrounded by rolling hills and winding rivers, the town has a wealth of history, churches and folklore. Landmarks include The Anglican Crediton Parish Church and Downes Country House, built about 1692. The north-west side of the town had a great wall built in 1276, which partly remains today. For foodies, local cheeses, home grown beef and organic vegetables are found in the high street shops and farmers’ market. Around Crediton there are several dairies and creameries which are open to the public. Crediton lies only 7 miles from Dartmoor National Park and not far from Exmoor. This is Lorna Doone country and the area where Henry Williamson wrote Tarka the Otter. The coast is close by and so are the deeply wooded valleys of South Devon.
