Woodbury parish, incorporating the villages of Woodbury, Woodbury Salterton and Exton, is currently one of the largest parishes in Devon. It encompasses much of Woodbury Common - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), ideal for walking and riding. In days of old, the parish was frequented by Sir Francis Drake, and a chapel dedicated to the memory of the Drake family is situated in St Swithuns Church. Facilities on offer within the village include two pubs, pre and primary schooling, two churches, village shop and post office, restaurant, two antique shops, a farm shop nearby (with butcher and fishmonger) and Woodbury Park Golf and Leisure Club. The village is within easy reach of the popular beaches of Budleigh Salterton and Exmouth. The cathedral and university city of Exeter offers an extensive range of facilities, shops and schooling.
