SITUATION

Amidst the rolling countryside of the Farway Valley, in the heart of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Farway is a small village dispersed across the picturesque countryside with the parish church of St Michael. The town of Honiton, three miles to the north, is easily accessible and provides everyday essentials and amenities and is widely renowned for its antique, book and independent shops. The stunning Jurassic Coast, designated as a World Heritage Site, at Branscombe is just seven miles away, and provides a vast array of breath-taking coastal walking and cycling routes. Farway has a primary school, whilst further schooling is available in Honiton and the surrounding towns and villages, including Colyton Grammar School.

Communication links are excellent with a direct rail service from Honiton to London Waterloo whilst the A30 provides swift and efficient road access to the Cathedral City of Exeter, to the west, and junction 29 of the M5 motorway. Exeter has a main line rail service to London Paddington, an international airport and extensive shopping and leisure facilities.
