Farway is on the East Devon Way - a walking route from Exmouth to Lyme Regis through the heart of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, linking to the South West Coast Path, the beautiful Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and the Exe Estuary.
The River Coly has its source above Farway being joined by the Umborne Brook at Colyton from where it flows to join the Axe at Colyford.
Farway School consists of the original stone building, which was constructed in 1835. In 2004 a new extension was finished which houses a new classroom and computer area, new toilets, a multi purpose hall, a spacious and secure main entrance with extremely good library facilities and a secure play area for the Foundation Stage children.

This is a caring, supportive congregation, who appreciate traditional worship.
