Widworthy Court is situated approximately 3 miles to the East from the historic market town of Honiton. Honiton combines expected services and amenities with a diverse range individual shops. The town is served by a direct rail service to London Waterloo, A30/A303 road connections to Exeter and the South East respectively, Tesco, Aldi and Lidl superstores, a parkland golf course, sports centre /swimming pool and out of town business parks providing a wide range of services and facilities.

Exeter lies some 15 miles to the west supporting comprehensive educational, cultural, recreational and shopping facilities commensurate with its Cathedral and University City status. The coast at Sidmouth, East Devon's premier coastal resort, is some 8 miles to the south. Taunton, the County town of Somerset with express rail service to London Paddington lies some 30 Miles to the North East and the M5 at Cullompton is approximately 10 Miles to the West.


Widworthy Court is the thoughtful conversion of a Grade II listed country house and its associated outbuildings into a wide range of individual character residences all sharing the delightful 10 acre gardens and grounds with all-weather tennis courts and internal gymnasium, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and Sauna.

Apartment 8 is located within the main body of the house on the second floor.

Situated on the top floor, the apartment features character sloping ceilings throughout its length with far reaching elevated views through secondary glazed windows over the formal front lawns to parkland beyond.
