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!

Orchard Barn

The conversion of this Grade II flint stone barn has been expertly done, balancing period features with 21st Century convenience. It has the 4-star seal of approval from Visit England recognising the high standard and quality finish of this accommodation as well as the excellent service provided by its hosts. You will find your welcome pack in the well-equipped kitchen area which also has a large wooden table for leisurely family meals alongside a cosy seating area with log burner. 



Exposed beams draw your eyes in the sitting room which also has a further two sofa beds if needed, as well as plenty of bean bags, board games, and books.

There is space for two cars to park as well as extra storage for bicycles as well as drying facilities. Across the courtyard is the large orchard garden which has marvellous views of the valley, complete with seating area, garden furniture, and a BBQ. Dogs are most welcome for an additional fee.

Your B&B Hosts

Christy and Noel Page-Turner are your hosts here in Devon. They are passionate about good food and they delight in sharing delicious four course meals, featuring the finest home grown vegetables and local meat and fish. Active members of the local community, Christy and Noel clearly enjoy entertaining and meeting people from all walks of life. Noel can often be found mowing, planting trees, pruning the topiary and he also spends a lot of time involved with voluntary organisations.


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.
