AbbotskerswellA Quiet Street

Welcome to Abbotskerswell, a picturesque Devon village full of history and character. Its position on a map can be deceptive. It is in a quiet valley, well away from the hustle and bustle of the larger towns and their roads, but is also very convenient for the seaside and all the major facilities and stores that one would expect of much more highly populated places.

This close-knit community of around 800 homes is enormously active in many different ways as well as being warmly welcoming to newcomers and visitors. You can see photos of some of our events by clicking here and videos here.

The village has many amenities including a school, two pubs, a village shop, cricket club, a hair salon, beautician, veterinary centre, café / emporium, church and sports facilities including a recreation  ground with football field,  allotments, children's play ground, tennis court and skateboard park.

There are three public meeting places; the Village Hall, Church House and the Parish Rooms. There are also many interesting historical features including a dozen thatched cottages, an original well, and a Quaker burial ground.

Please enjoy this website and do comment on it or suggest how it can be improved.

Happy New Year to all Village Hall users and our supporters and friends.

2014 has now arrived which means our Annual General Meeting is done and dusted and we are back to routine business. My chairman’s report will be published on the village web site in the next few weeks, so watch the (web) space.

Important calendar events this year are May Day Celebrations – May 5th and Garden Show – August 2nd . Planning for the 2014 Garden Show Programme has started and many thanks to all who sponsored and supported us last year. It would NOT happen without your contributions. Last year’s show was the best ever.

Our first film night, showing Mama Mia, was very successful and enjoyed by all. This has encouraged us to repeat a Friday Film Night. This will be on Friday, February 28th , and the film this time will be SKYFALL. Advertising will be going up around the village shortly. Please book the date in your diary, refreshments will be available on the night. Entrance will cost £4.

Glasshouse Project

Sunday, 23 February 2014 11:14


Do you fancy growing your own produce or starting your bedding plants in a large glasshouse but haven’t got the space at home?  Why  not rent a space in one of the glasshouses at Coach Road Newton Abbot.  Each of the raised beds are 2.5m  by 1.2m and cost £50 per year (a water system is provided)

This has been a community project with extensive refurbishment being carried out to one of the glasshouses at the site on Coach Road with the installation of raised beds in 2012.  Various local organisations have been involved with Quadron , Teignbridge’s Grounds Maintenance Contractors coordinating the refurbishment.  If you have any questions please contact Quadron – 01626 366164 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
