Welcome to Chudleigh
Chudleigh is a welcoming and charming place to visit with a wealth of history and surrounded by natural beauty. Located at the end of the Teign Valley our Saxon town dates back thousands of years. Prehistoric remains found in the caves at Chudleigh Rock (a limestone outcrop with a rock called the Pope’s Head) are evidence of Stone Age man, while an Iron Age hillfort, 1500BC – 400AD, overlooks our ancient wool town.
Well-placed to explore Haldon Forest and Dartmoor National Park, there are several beaches within a short drive and the entire area in and around Chudleigh is a walker’s paradise with glorious views to be admired. For nature lovers, Devon Wildlife Trust has 8 Nature reserves within 5 miles of the Town including Chudleigh Knighton Heath, the site of a Civil War battle and a haven for rare plants and wildlife, and Teigngrace Meadow, where birds, butterflies and wildflowers jostle for room amongst its meadowland and steep-sided slopes.
