Our Inspector's view
Orchard Barn and Woodhayes enjoy splendid views across the Otter Valley – off the beaten track yet accessible, it is only three miles from the market town of Honiton and a 25-minute drive from Exeter. The unspoilt coastline, picturesque beaches and seaside villages of the Jurassic Coast are only 20 minutes away. There are also many historic houses, castles and gardens including National Trust properties such as Killerton House, A la Ronde and Knighthayes Court nearby. There are plenty of attractions for children of all ages from theme parks, wildlife parks to steam railways and farms. Other activities to discover – sea fishing, fossil hunting, pony trekking, cycling and golf. There is an on-site pilates studio at Enlightened Body Pilates (please check their website to enquire about classes and individual sessions). Extra information and brochures are provided in the barn. Call Orchard Barn is you are looking for specific activities or advice.

About the area
With magnificent coastlines, two historic cities and the world-famous Dartmoor National Park, Devon sums up all that is best about the British landscape. For centuries it has been a fashionable and much loved holiday destination – especially south Devon’s glorious English Riviera.
Close to the English Riviera lies Dartmoor, one of the south-west’s most spectacular landscapes. The National Park, which contains Dartmoor, covers 365 square miles and includes many fascinating geological features – isolated granite tors and two summits exceeding 2,000 feet among them.
Not surprisingly, in Dartmoor the walking opportunities are enormous. Cycling in the two National Parks is also extremely popular and there is a good choice of off-road routes taking you to the heart of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Devon’s towns and cities offer stimulating alternatives to the rigours of the countryside.
