  • Alan

    “This was our second trip to The Old Smithy, we returned because we found the place so comfortable and an ideal base for relaxing.”

    My wife and I were impressed with the setting of The Old Smithy and how well it had been renovated. Plenty to see and do not too far away whatever your tastes are. I am sure we will be back for a third visit.

About the location


Honiton 6.4 miles; Axminster 15.8 miles.

Situated in the heart of the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Devon/Somerset border, lies the village of Luppitt, just 6.4 miles from Honiton. With wonderful fields, hedgerows, woodlands and isolated farmsteads this is rural living at its best. Within the village you will one of Britain’s smallest pubs which rests snugly within the owner’s farmhouse and serves one beer – Otter Bitter, which is a favourite local brew. Despite its small size, this pub promises bags of character and charm, as well as a dartboard for entertainment. Find a larger selection of amenities within the nearby market town of Honiton, where you will also find the award-winning Thelma Hulbert Gallery access to a number of local beauty spots which include the Iron Age Hembury Fort and Blackbury Camp. For those feeling active, look forward to exploring miles of countryside upon the Blackdown Hills, where you will find opportunities for walking, cycling and horse riding amidst endearing woodland and rolling valleys. Luppitt promises to be a wonderful escape to this part of the countryside with your loved ones.

Note: There are 2 steps up into the kitchen and 1 step down into the shower room.
Note: Until restrictions change, the shared Games Room will be closed to guests.
