About Broadhembury

Broadhembury is an idyllic village which is an oasis of calm and beauty lying at the edge of the Blackdown Hills. It is famous as a "thatched" village, with all the charm and character of a bygone era.

The village is within easy reach of the coast, Dartmoor and Exmoor, it is the ideal place to get away from it all, yet has within its grasp many places of interest for the traveller. There are lovely local walks amidst charming scenery, some nearby historic national trust houses, and the interesting market town of Honiton, renowned for its lovely lace and antique shops is close by.

Within a short distance of the village there is a famous Donkey Sanctuary and several adventure park's including the exciting Crealy Adventure Park. To the south of the village is the Hembury Ring and Walford Chapel lies on Broadhembury's northern edge.

Visitors will find plenty to see and do. And for relaxing, eating and drinking there is a goodly supply of inns, pubs, restaurants and quaint tea-rooms.
