Living in Umberleigh: The local area guide

The pretty and rural village of Umberleigh is set in a quiet and picturesque part of North Devon in the parish of Chittlehampton. A former large manor within historic England, the area has, over time, been transformed into a small village with just a few quaint amenities.

Umberleigh is full of history, with its original manor even listed in the Domesday Book. It’s also home to the Cobbaton Combat Collection, a military museum with hundreds of exhibits from the Boer War, right through to the Gulf War.

One of the other well-known facts about the village includes the story behind Tarka line - the rural branch line between Barnstaple and Exeter, which runs into Umberleigh Station. The line itself was named after Henry Williamson's best selling book with the rail journey offering some tremendous views.

From fishing on River Taw to socialising at the local pubs, or picking up your day-to-day essentials at the local shops – there’s a lot to love about the village of Umberleigh. Other amenities include the popular tea rooms, as well as a post office and a school.

Demographics

The village has a fairly sizeable population of 2,266 people – as recorded in the 2011 census. Just under 30% of the residents at this time were aged 65 and over (males) and 60 and over (females), and approximately 26% of the residents were aged between 25-49.

There’s a good level of employment in the village, with residents enjoying a wide variety of jobs. At the time of the census, occupations varied, but the largest proportion (26.1%) worked in skilled trades occupations.

You can expect the majority of homes here to be semi detached and detached properties, and owner occupied. In 2011, 85% of the properties were said to be of this style.

Education

There’s access to a range of great schools from the village of Umberleigh. Primary schools include Umberleigh Primary Academy, Chittlehampton Church of England Primary School, and High Bickington Church of England Primary School.

Secondary schools include The Lampard Community School, a special needs school, The Park Community School and West Buckland School. All of these institutes are located in Barnstaple and within six miles of Umberleigh.

The local primary school, Umberleigh Primary Academy, performed particularly well in its latest Ofsted assessment, where its ‘Overall Effectiveness’ was rated as ‘good’. The 2011 report highlighted the great teaching at the Early Years Foundation Stage and the staff’s good relationship with pupils.

Transport

Despite its size, the transportation links in Umberleigh are good. There are regular bus and rail services that take you in and around the area, with direct trains to Exeter and Barnstaple. The railway station lies on the Tarka Line and is served by First Great Western.

Getting into the village and to the surrounding towns by car is easy, too. Umberleigh is just six miles from Barnstaple, on the A377 to Exeter, and within easy reach of the popular towns of South Molton and Torrington.

Amenities and shopping

While there are a few shops in Umberleigh, including the Post Office and a Costcutter newsagent, you’ll need to travel a little further for your weekly shop. Barnstaple is home to a number of popular supermarkets including a Sainsbury's, Tesco superstore, and an Iceland - which can all be found within seven miles.

Barnstaple is also the place to go if you’re seeking leisure facilities and great high street stores. Not only is there plenty to be found in Barnstaple’s town centre, there’s also lots more in the local mall. Green Lanes Shopping Centre is home to all your favourites, including New Look, BHS and TK Maxx.

For a day out with a difference, shop the eclectic mix of stores in Exeter. An hour away by car or train, Exeter offers high street brands as well as fantastic independent stores.
