Luppitt is a village and civil parish in East Devon situated about 6 kilometres (4 mi) due north of Honiton.

The historian William Harris was preacher at the village's Presbyterian chapel from 1741 to 1770.

Towards the end of his life, the painter Robert Polhill Bevan (1865-1925) had a cottage called Marlpits on Luppitt Common, in which he painted a number of views of the neighbourhood.
