Honiton is known as one of the most friendly market towns in the South West. Famous for its lace and pottery, it has now become one of the most prosperous and lively shopping centres in East Devon. Originally known for the lace that was manufactured there in abundance, the excellence of which became known the world over, today it has other more varied industries as well. Still a hub of activity, it is one of the busier towns in Dorset, with many period holiday barns and cottages to choose from. Take Grandad's, an attractive, tastefully refurbished cottage that offers extremely comfortable and well maintained holiday accommodation in Honiton. The Cider House on the other hand is a detached holiday cottage built in old stone with a stable door that oozes character and is the perfect family holiday cottage in Honiton. For a truly unique holiday getaway however, try The Old Chapel, a detached holiday home for couples with unique character in a delightful riverside setting, located in the grounds of the former Feniton Mill, adjacent to the River Otter in the hamlet of Fenny Bridges, just outside of Honiton.
