Awliscombe is a village and civil parish in the East Devon district of Devon, England. It is about two miles west of Honiton. The 2001 census gives a population of 507 for the parish.

In the centre of the village is the church of St Michael & All Angels and Awliscombe C of E Primary School [1]

Arthur Mee's The King's England:Devon (1965) describes the village as having "a fine show of medieval stonework", and the church screen as being "one of the splendid survivals of the best craftsmanship of medieval Devon".
