Places to Stay in Crediton
With its excellent rail links and its proximity to Exeter, Crediton is a great base for anyone wanting to explore Devon. Being in Mid-Devon, the town gives you easy access to both the North and South Coasts as well as the Jurassic Coast in the east of the county, so you can have a different adventure every day of your trip.
Not just content with being a convenient place to stay, Crediton has a wide range of accommodation options, so you can easily find the perfect home from home.
B&Bs and Guesthouses galore
One of the most popular options, especially for those staying for the weekend or a couple of days is one of the town’s bed and breakfasts or guesthouses. These quiet, comfortable establishments are often privately owned which means you can get last minute deals and can easily speak to the owners who are a font of local knowledge. Not only that, but you can be sure of a familiar, homely vibe throughout the property and the chance to start your day with a traditional Devonshire breakfast – which is often made to order.
Families like to make use of the various self catering options, which include everything from caravan and holiday parks to apartments and cottages. As a lively market town, being self-catering gives you the freedom to explore at your leisure and of course, to sample as much of the local food and drink as you can manage! These are also a good choice for those of you that need space or are travelling in a larger group, these properties are also often dog friendly and have more space for parking, should you want to experience one of the many tiny lanes that the county is famous for!
Crediton’s history is steeped in the farming industry, so why not book a farm stay? These are a great way to really immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the town and live like a local. Plus, many of them will let you collect eggs and there is something very special about food that fresh!
The town’s hotels are a great way to escape to the countryside without being too rural. They give the impression of getting away from it all without being too far away from civilisation. Crediton is a lively town and is close to Exeter, so you can easily have the best of both worlds.
