Haccombe is situated in a beautiful valley, surrounded by farmland and traditional Devon countryside, and was once described as the smallest parish in England. The parish is known for its beautiful little church of St. Blaise, which merits two stars in Simon Jenkins’ “England’s Thousand Best Churches” and was built in 1233 by Sir Stephen de Haccombe on his return from the Fifth Crusade. This impressive and historical hamlet, although in an idyllic rural setting, is easily accessible to the larger towns of Newton Abbot, Torquay and the city of Exeter.

The mainline rail station at Newton Abbot is about 3 miles distant and offers a regular high-speed service to London Paddington in about 2.5 hours. Haccombe is well situated between the glorious rural idyll that is Dartmoor and the sandy South Devon beaches, ensuring you will never be short of things to do or places to visit.

Both Torquay and Newton Abbot offer an excellent range of amenities including superstores, hospitals, restaurants, boutique shops and galleries, and a good range of secondary schools including Torquay Boys’ Grammar and Torquay Girls’ Grammar Schools. The cathedral city of Exeter, which is about 18 miles away, is a hub of cultural excellence and home to one of the top UK universities. The A380 offers access to the M5 and is about 3 miles distant.
