Honiton & surrounding area


Honiton is famous for its extensive range of antique shops; most of these are easily reached on foot.  On Tuesdays and Saturdays there is an interesting street market.


There are several pubs and restaurants within a short walk of the house.  These include Indian, Chinese and Thai.  We will be glad to provide you with contact details should you wish to make a booking.


The town of Honiton is ideal as a base from which to explore some spectacular and tranquil countryside.  Both Dartmoor and Exmoor are within an hour's drive and the lesser known Blackdown Hills can be reached by car in just 15 minutes.  There are a number of beautiful coastal towns and villages with unspoilt beaches, such as Beer, Branscombe and Lyme Regis, which are all about ten miles from Honiton.  The city of Exeter, with its famous cathedral, city wall and underground passages, is only 16 miles away and is easily accessible either by road or by rail. 


For walkers and cyclists, there are several designated routes within easy reach of the town.
