Peaceful, comfortable and welcoming…

Proudly overlooking the Otter Valley, Honiton and Devon, in what Daniel Defoe once called "the finest landscape in the world", rises Woodhayes, an elegant listed Georgian farmhouse offering luxury bed and breakfast accommodation at its finest.

Dating back to the 14th century, Woodhayes is steeped in history and has a fascinating literary connection. Noel's, Page-Turner ancestor was the great aunt to one of Britain's greatest ever writers, Jane Austen, who often frequented nearby Lyme Regis.

Fine antique furniture, sumptuous beds with fine bed linen and walls adorned with original paintings (including full-length family portraits) make this an impressive, yet comfortable home from home for Wolsey Lodge guests visiting Honiton and the surrounding Devon countryside.

Guests are encouraged to explore the one-and-a-half-acre garden featuring beautiful topiary and enjoy the scenic walks on the 150-acre farm. Breakfast is superb and locally sourced as is all the produce used in the dinner menu as well. If you are feeling particularly active you can book an on-site Pilates lesson!

Delightful. Dinner with the hosts was happy, with lively conversation and scrumptious food. This was an exceptional Wolsey Lodge experience.

Your B&B Hosts

Christy and Noel Page-Turner are your hosts here in Devon.

Active members of the local community, Christy and Noel clearly enjoy entertaining and meeting people from all walks of life.

Located in Honiton this Wolsey Lodge is close to all that Devon and Dorset has to offer. The Jurassic Coast (including the fossil hunter's paradise of Lyme Regis), East Devon and Dorset are on the doorstep and there is Honiton itself, the 'antique capital' of the South West with its bi-annual arts and music festival and the world's premier collection of Honiton lace.
