Cheriton Bishop is a village on the edge of Dartmoor situated just off the A30 trunk road which used to run through the centre of the village.  It is mainly in the Mid Devon District Council area but part is in Dartmoor National Park.  Our village has a very active community with activities taking place in the Village Hall and the smaller Spalding Hall. There is a free monthly Newsletter providing details of everything that is going on in the village. There are numerous village organisations catering for every sort of activity, indoors and out.

We have Checkers Village Shop and Post Office, a doctors' surgery, a Primary School and Pre School also the Old Thatch Inn and Woodleigh Coach House cafe. Acorn Community Support provides transport and assistance.

If there is a flag flying it is to mark either a national or local event taking place.   Check your newsletter for the latest news.
