Wilmington, Honiton, Devon

It’s fair to say that Wilmington doesn’t attract much attention from visitors because most folk just pass through it on the way to somewhere else. The village sits astride the A35 between Axminster and Honiton in East Devon, what was once the London to Exeter road, so it might be somewhere to stop off for a bite to eat if you’re out and about exploring when you’re on your holiday in Devon.

The White Hart serves pub food, or just down the road is Home Farm Hotel where they have a restaurant that does excellent Thai food with a few Chinese and English dishes also on the menu – they do takeaway too, and cream tea, so that’s well worth bearing in mind. There are good walks to be had around Wilmington with footpaths and trails through open fields and woods to high ridges where the views are incredible, and if ecclesiastical architecture is your thing go and see the 14th century church – the setting, with the backdrop of rolling fields, is charming.
