Copplestone is a mid-Devon village nestling in lovely green countryside, set four miles from the town of Crediton and a twenty minute drive from the cathedral city of Exeter. Copplestone offers a shop and pub, as well as the Copplestone Cross, which is said to mark the centre of Devon, with many believing it dates back to the 10th century.
