Galileo is part of the exciting new town of Cranbrook, located approximately 7 miles east of the historic city of Exeter. It's a great new community with good amenities, including schools, shops, and transport links. It's within easy commuting distance of the city, close to Exeter Airport, as well as to the unspoilt East Coast of Devon.
This is a great location for getting out and about as well as into Exeter. The M5 and A303 are within easy reach for journeys across Devon and to Cornwall, or for Bristol and London. Exeter is a thriving small city, with a pedestrianised shopping centre for all the high street brands, as well as Gandy Street and The Quay for something a bit different. Having a main line train station is a great asset too, with a convenient link from Cranbrook which is on the West of England Main Line.
This stunning rural location benefits from a new town centre, complete with local shops, schools, businesses and a multi-purpose community building. Cranbrook even has its own dedicated town council, serving local residents and creating a community spirit. Just a few minutes drive away is the delightful village of Ottery St Mary with its literary history, quirky shops and annual Tar Barrel ceremony. Within a 20 minute drive is the cathedral city of Exeter, a hub of entertainment, leisure and shopping The surrounding Devon countryside offers many opportunities to enjoy the region's forests, rivers, beaches and wildlife; from the dramatic landscapes of the famous Dartmoor National Park to the golden sands of Exmoor Beach and Dawlish Warren and the unspoilt beaches of the East Devon Jurassic coastline. Just down the road is Escot Country Park with acres of beautiful parkland, a red squirrel enclosure, café and children's outdoor play areas. The National Trust's Killerton estate is nearby with lovely walks and activities for children.
Cranbrook Education Campus has two new primary schools and a new secondary school, providing good child-centred education for pupils aged 2-16. St Martin's C of E Primary & Nursery School was the first to open in the town and it continues to thrive.
