Devon - Honiton

Honiton is a market town and civil parish in East Devon, situated close to the River Otter, 17 miles (27 km) north east ofExeter in the county of Devon. Honiton has a population estimated at 11,822 (based on mid-year estimates for the two Honiton Wards in 2009).

The town grew along the line of the Fosse Way, the ancient Roman road linking Exeter (Isca Dumnoniorum) to Lincoln (Lindum) on which it was an important stopping point. The location is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Honetone, meaning a farm belonging to Huna. It became an important market town, known for its lace making that was introduced by Flemish immigrants in the Elizabethan era. In the 17th century thousands of people produced lace by hand in their homes, and later in the 19th century Queen Victoria had her wedding dress made of Honiton lace. The town also became known for its pottery. In the mid-18th century the town was largely destroyed by fire. Georgian houses were then built to replace some of those that had been destroyed. Honiton more than doubled in size between the 1960s and 2005, with most development taking place south of the Exeter to Waterloo railway line.

Within the beautiful village of Yarcombe near Honiton, nestled in the Blackdown Hills and opposite the beautiful Yarcombe Inn, once owned by Sir Francis Drake. If you are looking for Hotels near Honiton, we are just 1/2 mile off the A303.

As one of the key buildings in the centre of the village the hotel has an imposing location opposite the 13th Century church and possibly even older pub, The Yarcombe Inn.

The Belfry is built mainly of flint cob, with stone mullioned windows set with leaded, stained windows. 

When a school, the building comprised three large barn-like rooms, the junior school-room took up the largest area in the main wing that now is made up of the guest lounge and office and five of our six guest bedrooms.  The infants school-room was the longer side wing to the north that is now our restaurant and private accommodation.  The shorter wing, that is today the kitchen and the sixth guest room above, was originally the school kitchen complete with 50 gallon cow boiler!
