About Widworthy Barton

Widworthy Barton is a beautiful, sixteenth century, Grade II* listed manor house, located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, near Honiton in East Devon.

There are 7 bedrooms to sleep 14 people. The master bedroom has a king-size four-poster bed and ensuite bathroom. The other six bedrooms share the remaining three bathrooms which have either a bath or shower. There are two cloakrooms too.

The house is arranged around a central courtyard, and has a Great Hall, which easily seats 14 for a formal dinner. There is also a large drawing room, a cinema room, a kitchen and a boot room. There’s an Elizabethan gallery on the 1st floor, known as the Long Room. It’s long and sun-filled, and the perfect place to read or play card games.

Outside, there is an all-weather tennis court and a swimming pool (recently renovated) with plenty of room for baskers and barbequers. The paths in the gardens each lead to lovely views or a handy bench. Guests are welcome to wander in the private 100 acre woodland, bird-spotting, or else exhausting raucous children.

Widworthy Barton is a private family home and does not accept bookings for stag or hen parties.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

“This is a beautiful house, very elegant. One of my favourite rooms is the prosaically-named Long Room. The house is built of local ‘Beerstone’, which is always a good indication in my book. Merriment happens here.”

About the Location

I spent one of the most magical and memorable weeks of my life at Widworthy Barton. The location is breathtaking. The view of the rolling hills above the private heated pool is outstanding. The grounds; with a tennis court, beautiful flowers, fruit trees and the marvellous St Cuthbert's church with its beautiful congregation, are all second to none. The house itself is exquisite, full of historical features, and the finish of every room is of a quality higher than some 5* hotels in which I've stayed. Above all, Caroline and Graham as the custodians of the Barton, are perhaps its greatest asset. Graham ensures that the grounds are immaculate, and during our stay helped us out with anything we needed. Caroline, is indescribably kind, helpful, and made us feel like we were visiting an old family friend. They are two of the loveliest people you will ever meet. I cannot praise Widworthy Barton highly enough. If I could, I would give it 6 stars.

We spent Christmas holidays in the house and it was an unforgettable experience. I spent hours in the library working or digging on those beautiful books. We where able to stay in the kitchen, chatting and drinking while the different meals were being prepared, as it is big enough. On the main hall there is a big old table that its the perfect place for family dinners. The surroundings were also beautiful to take a pleasent walk and we even were lucky to have some sun in the mornings and be able to play Tennis at the court!
