About Witheridge

The village of Witheridge is set in a gloriously scenic area dominated by the waters of the Rivers, Little Dart, Dalch, Taw and the lovely River Mole. It is a charmingly un-spoilt village which has clung steadfast to its rural way of life, with farming being mostly at the centre of the economy.

The village is perhaps best known for its beautiful village church, this has a sturdy clock-face tower crowned with pinnacles and is surrounded by an attractive church-yard. There is a village store, a post office and a newsagents. Two village inns provide good food and lively conversation - the pub is the place to be if you want to meet the locals!

Witheridge is on the Two Moors Way, thus it offers easy access to the delights of both Dartmoor and Exmoor. The townships of Crediton and South Moulton are both just a short drive away.
