As usual we were looking for a somewhere for Sunday lunch whilst our son was in Wellington. We decided to come down the M5 a little, so we searched for places to eat in Honiton this time. I googled some nice walks and found Broadhembury – and I am so glad we did – a lovely little village, with a beautiful walk.
Broadhembury sits on the South West edge of The Blackdown Hills just within the county of Devon. From Visit South Devon’s website https://www.visitsouthdevon.co.uk/explore-south-devon/broadhembury
“Broadhembury parish church, consecrated in 1259, has a tower dating from 1480.”
The village has a shop, a tea room and a pub. A lot of the houses date back to the 16th and 17th Centuries and the village itself has a real ‘chocolate box’ Devonian feel to it. The tiny school next to the church looks so quaint and you could be forgiven for coveting the stunning manor house.
As to the circular walk over the top of the village, it was really lovely. I found it on this website https://broadhemburyparishcouncil.org.uk/broadhembury-parish/parish-walks/. Huge big up for the person that wrote the walk as it was one of the clearest set of instructions for a walk I have seen in a long time!

Even better is that the walk ended with a fantastic lunch in The Drewe Arms. Click on the link to read my review of the lunch.
