Honiton is a delightful market town in East Devon, with plenty to offer visitors. 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. Honiton boasts the only public art gallery in East Devon; the Thelma Hulbert Gallery occupies an attractive Grade I listed Victorian house, and has links with the Hayward Gallery, London. Honiton is only a short drive from the dramatic 20 mile stretch of Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. Resorts such as Seaton, Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth are found along this stretch of coastline, and all have much to occupy the visitor. Near to Honiton is the cathedral city of Exeter with plenty of large shops, a wealth of museums, a theatre and fabulous restaurants.

Previous visitors' comments about Old Ford Farm Annexe:
Quiet location with an excellent host. Cottage beautifully equipped and spotlessly clean. Good for touring the coast and surrounding areas.
Mr Gent, Andover, September 2012
This was a perfect location for touring South Devon. Our host was a perfect gentleman and really did go the extra mile to ensure that our every need was covered. He even moved some sheep from a field higher up to one adjacent to the cottage to really create the farm environment. Waking up to the sound of lambs in the morning was very refreshing.
Mr Bullen, Yateley, September 2012
The location of the property was perfect for getting around the area. The cottage was set in a lovely area and easy to access from the road. The gardens were well kept and parking was excellent. The owner was very friendly and helpful and you felt at ease around his property.
Mr Reynolds, Pontypool, August 2012
The owner was most helpful and friendly. The location was great for exploring that part of Devon. The cottage was warm and comfortable. The provisions supplied were more than expected. Tea/coffee/milk/eggs plus a lovely bottle of wine.
