Welcome to the Crediton Area

Crediton is an historic Devon market town, convenient for both Dartmoor and Exmoor, and only seven miles from Exeter. It boasts a thriving business community, good schools and a unique setting in the heart of the Devonshire countryside.

Crediton is the ideal centre for both Tourism in Devon and for Westcountry business.
