For the visitor, Bampton is ideally sited in rural Devon, and is at the centre of an area where there is much to do and explore. The whole of the centre of the town is a conservation area, and there are almost 100 listed buildings and other objects within the parish. Drone image Bampton church

Our little town has a surprising range of local amenities - shops, pubs, restaurants, businesses, and places to stay. It also has quite a history from the Romans to its early Saxon origins, the Norman castle, the wool and pony trade, the 12th century church, the quarrying of the local stone; now it is a thriving centre used by local villagers and visitors.
