Colaton Raleigh is a village and civil parish in East Devon, England. The parish is surrounded clockwise from the north by the parishes of Aylesbeare, Newton Poppleford and Harpford, Otterton, Bicton, Woodbury and a small part of Farringdon.[1]

The village is located to the west of the River Otter on the B3178 road between Newton Poppleford to the north and East Budleigh to the south; the village is mentioned in the Domesday Book[2] stating it had 20 villagers, 8 smallholders and 6 slaves. In 1066 it was owned by Earl Harold (King Harold II) before passing to King William after Harold's defeat at the Battle of Hastings; the church is dedicated to St John the Baptist. The village has a shop named "Woods Village Stores" in the centre next to the B3178 road. Bus route 157 operated by Stagecoach South West runs hourly towards Exmouth and Sidmouth through the village; the village's public house is called the Otter Inn; its large garden contains monkey puzzle trees.
