You’ve arrived in Crediton, a town and civil parish in Devon, South West England, approximately 7 miles from Exeter. It lies in the narrow vale of the River Creedy, between two sizable hills, and is divided into two parts.
These are the north (or “old town”) and the south and east (“new town”). When it comes to having an Afternoon Tea in Crediton, however, there is ample choice wherever you go.

The first indication of a settlement at modern-day Crediton is the claim that Winfrith, better known as Saint Boniface, was born here in c. 672 CE.
This iconic feature propagated Christianity in the Frankish Empire during the 8th century, and is today the patron saint of both Germany and the Netherlands. In fact, since 1897, this area has been the seat of a suffragan bishopric in the Diocese of Exeter.
Crediton has suffered much over the years, including the decline of its woollen textile trade, the ravages of the English Civil War and a great fire in 1743. It has, however, since recovered – building itself up bigger and better with each passing year.
Nowadays, it hosts several Afternoon Tea Crediton venues, all of which are well worth visiting. Go on – treat yourself and indulge on your next trip.
