    • “No problems, excellent location for quiet peaceful holiday, but within easy reach of lovely seaside locations when required”

    Mr Harvey, Bicester, August 2018

    • “A lovely cottage a short distance up a quiet country lane but close to a good pub and less than 5 minutes drive from Honiton, a very pleasant town with everything you require. Would certainly look to come back again as have many previous visitors and would thoroughly recommend this cottage.”

    Mr Galt, WHITSTABLE, July 2018

    • “Everything needed for a great stay was there at the cottage. A particularly nice, welcoming, touch was the provision of a pint of milk on arrival together with cake and a vase of fresh tulips, Jan, the owner, was also there to meet us soon after we arrived to make sure everything was OK. A great base for exploring Devon, Somerset and Dorset and the Jurassic coastline.”

    Mr Dolan, Newark, May 2018

It lies in the valley of the River Otter and is surrounded by rolling Devon hills, green wooded valleys and plenty of scattered farming villages. Honiton has an attractive High Street stretching almost 2 miles, and lined with individually owned shops, pubs and restaurants. Honiton has been famous for lacemaking since the reign of Elizabeth I and still has a few lacemakers in work today - visitors can see some fine examples of antique lace in the town’s Allhallows Museum.
