Originally the village school, The Belfry near Honiton was built in the late 1860s under instruction of Sir Francis Elliot-Drake, Squire of the Parish.
The Belfry at Yarcombe, Boutique Rooms and Group Event Dining near Honiton, is built mainly of flint cob, with stone mullioned windows set with leaded, stained windows.
When a school, the building comprised three large barn-like rooms, the junior school-room took up the largest area in the main wing that now is made up of the guest lounge and five of our six guest bedrooms. The infants school-room was the longer side wing to the north that is now our restaurant and private accomodation. The shorter wing, that is today the kitchen and the sixth guest room above, was originally the school kitchen complete with 50 gallon cow boiler!.
All our guest rooms are bright and clean with en-suite bathrooms There are six guest rooms in all.
The south facing Terrace is wonderful for our guests to enjoy during the fine weather. The views across the village and the valley beyond are stunning, particularly from the first floor. For more detailed information about the guest rooms and the restaurant click on the links above.
