Holiday Cottages in Honiton and Combe Raleigh
A lively market town known for its rich history in lace and pottery, delightful Honiton sits in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is regarded as the antiques capital of the South West. Set on the banks of the River Otter, the High Street is a wonderful place to while away a few hours, browsing the many antiques shops, along with the usual high street stores. Worth a visit is the award-winning Thelma Hulbert Gallery which features art from National exhibitions, as well as pieces by talented locals also.
From the bustling market town at its centre to the beautiful countryside outskirts, Honiton boasts a true taste of Devon throughout. An engaging calendar of events in Honiton range from the Honiton Festival biannually in May through to the Hot Pennies Day in July and continue to the fun of the Carnival in October, considered to be one of the best in Devon. The outskirts of the town features a selection of nestled away villages such as Combe Raleigh, a peaceful countryside village which sits just over a mile away from the town. Those looking for a true getaway holiday in Devon will fall in love with the village which includes a Village Hall where there's always something going on, as well as a local church, village shop and some quintessential, thatched Devon properties to admire.
