The Village of Tipton St John

Situated in the Otter Valley, some 2.5 miles from Ottery St Mary and 3 miles from Sidmouth in the East Devon Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty lies the village of Tipton St John. Some 8 miles from Exeter International airport and 12 miles from the City of Exeter, East Devon is the gateway to the Jurassic Coast and Tipton St John is a rural community ideally situated in this wonderful area.

The village has history dating back to the Doomsday Book,  and between 1874 and 1967 Tipton St John formed an integral part of  the rail network with a bustling station on the mainline carrying passengers from London and the Midlands to the popular health resorts of Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth.

Now however, with its Community Hall, Playing Fields, Church, School, Shop, Garage and Pub it now provides home to an active community dedicated to preserving the best of tried and tested values with a modern outlook for its residents and visitors alike.

The site is aimed at providing information for both resident and visitors, so please browse our site at your leisure and  we hope you find something of interest and if you do, why not pay us a visit, there are many reasons to do so!

You may like to walk or cycle through quiet country lanes, walk alongside the river, or through forest and dis-used railway tracks, spot plenty of birds including Buzzard  Egret and Kingfisher, see rabbits and foxes as well as a variety of farm animals. Or why not sit an enjoy some peace and quiet in our recreation ground beside the river or the Church, perhaps a warm welcome in our Pub is more to your liking. Whatever you choose to do, you will find a warm welcome here.
