Local Information

We are very fortunate to still have many local services that have long since disappeared from other rural areas. These include our school, church, post office with convenience store and petrol pumps, pub, playing field, public conveniences and a very good bus service. You may also be interested in:

The local Post Office is run from the shop, you can buy National Lottery tickets. There is also an ATM and Texaco fuel station. 


The Rest and Be Thankful Inn

Our local pub used to be an old coaching inn but now specialises in quality accommodation and excellent home cooking with Sunday Carvery.

The pub is a popular venue for local skittles, darts and quiz nights and has facilities for children and the recreation field with its play area close by.


Cutcombe First School

At our school we aim to provide an exciting and engaging education for each and every child.

We believe that children thrive in a positive environment where there is an ethos of caring and sharing with respect for the individual. We aim to be a school where people feel welcome and valued and where children can develop the confidence and independence necessary for personal success.

If you would like more information or would like to come and visit us, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
