Combe Raleigh is a village in the county of Devon, England. It is about 1.5 miles north of the town of Honiton. The word 'Combe' is of Celtic origin meaning 'valley' (the same as cwm) whilst the name 'Raleigh' comes from the Raleigh family's ownership of the village in the thirteenth century.
The 15th-century parish church (St. Nicholas) has three bells and its minister is shared with the nearby village of Awliscombe. The village has no shops.
In the past twenty to thirty years agriculture has declined considerably in the area, but the village does have three horticulture-based businesses.
