Our Community

Devon Business & Education Centre is located in Tale, East Devon, midway between the three towns of Cullompton, Honiton and Ottery St Mary. It is a highly rural area which in the past has been very dependent on agriculture.  In the hamlet of Tale, just 30 years ago there were 5 dairy farms but now there is only one.


Like many rural communities, there are significant issues of rural isolation which are exacerbated by limited public transport links and poor internet connectivity. The Centre has been established with these issues in mind, with the aim of providing an accessible, highly connected and inspiring hub for local businesses, community organisations and people.


A 20% discount is available for the local community, local businesses, charities and educational organisations for meeting room hire.
