The Parish of Willand, is situated in the countryside of Mid Devon, approximately 7 miles south of Tiverton. .The village straddles the B3181 (the old A38) and is easily accessed from all local areas as well as either Exit 27 or 28 of the M5. We are on the edge of the picturesque Blackdown Hills aand have easy access to Exeter, Taunton, Tiverton and North Devon. Both Exmoor and Dartmoor are less than a one hour drive away.

We have a large number of organisations in the village, covering a wide range of activities including, football, tennis, history, art, youth club and a number of social groups.

On this web site we bring together the work of our active Parish Council, the village organisations and local businesses. Please browse our site and find out more.....
