Honiton & around


The Blackdown Hills, Honiton, East Devon, Tony Howell, Heart of Devon ImagesThe Blackdown Hills © Tony Howell, Heart of Devon Images 

It is a region for walkers or cyclists looking for solitude, or brave drivers who are comfortable on the single-track lanes.

Away from the seaside and accompanying holiday crowds, this is the heart of East Devon, a gentle landscape of rolling hills, spacious views, narrow lanes almost hidden by the wayside flowers, little churches and welcoming pubs. It is a region for walkers or cyclists looking for solitude, or brave drivers who are comfortable on the single-track lanes. To the north of Honiton are the Blackdown Hills, part of Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and to the west, bordered by the M5, the A30, and the A373, is a more gentle region of farmland, villages and pubs: one of my favourite parts of East Devon.
