Crediton is a lively market town in the heart of Devon with a rich history.
Crediton has a unique spiritual heritage as birth place of St Boniface and home to the National Shrine of Saint Boniface as well as the grand Parish Church of the Holy Cross, which stands on the site of Devon’s first Saxon cathedral.
Many independent retailers and a thriving famers’ market, make Crediton an ideal place to escape the monotony of the high street, buy unique gifts and sample locally sourced food and drink.
This historic market town is a convenient place to stay if you’re planning trips to Dartmoor and Exmoor. Sitting in the narrow vale of the River Creedy, it’s only seven miles from Exeter and in the middle of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Crediton offers a main line rail service and is served by all trains on the Barnstaple to Exeter line. If you’re taking a trip on the scenic Tarka line stop off at Eggesford Station to explore the beauty of Eggesford forest, a large and enchanting forest with a network of trails, perfect for a family day out or walking the dog.
