The parish of Luppitt comprises Luppitt village, Beacon, Wick and Shaugh and is set in the heart of picturesque East Devon, some 7 miles from the market town of Honiton. The parish borders the beautiful Otter Valley which is part of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Luppitt is made up of a tapestry of small, family-run farms and has some 25 miles of roads and lanes, common land, upland grazing, farmland, public footpaths and bridleways. Luppitt is a thriving community with a Church, Village Hall, a pub, a Vihara (Buddhist monastery) and a brewery which makes the very successful Otter Ales. Luppitt boasts the famous Dumpdon Hill with an Iron Age fort which is National Trust and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

St Mary’s Church has an interesting Saxon font. A permanent Puzzle Bench, with many interesting facts about Luppitt, was erected in the Churchyard to commemorate the Millennium. Luppitt has many listed houses, several of which are mentioned in the Domesday Book.

Luppitt is a very active and social parish. Social activities centre on the Village Hall, the Church and pub. The village has a successful monthly magazine called The Luppitt Packet which is delivered free to every household in the parish and includes information of interest to the local community.
