Gittisham Hill Park is located on the outskirts of the market town of Honiton in beautiful East Devon. This retirement village sits in approximately 12 acres of parkland, within an area of outstanding natural beauty and is centred around a care home, which was formerly a country house. There are many facilities on site including the village clubhouse which offers a social hub for activities and functions.
While the village is situated in an established woodland setting, making it very private and tranquil, there are regular links to the surrounding amenities of Honiton town and the local Tesco Supemarket. The private minibus service also offers regular day trips to local places of interest.
Honiton itself is a bustling market town with a thriving community and is particularly well known as an antique and book centre. It has most of the usual multiples such as W. H. Smith, Boots and Tescos as well as a variety of independent shops, hospital, health centre, restaurants, sports centre/swimming pool, golf club and main line rail link to London (Waterloo).
Honiton has excellent communication links with a dual carriageway to the Cathedral City of Exeter the County Town, some 16.5 miles to the west. Exeter has an excellent range of shopping and sporting facilities, theatres, arts centre, main line rail link to London (Paddington), international airport and M5 access. The Regency coastal resort of Sidmouth is about 9 miles to the south with its wide pebble beach (sand at low tide), long esplanade and range of independent shops and boutiques. Sidmouth lies on a World Heritage Site known as the Jurassic Coast, over which there are delightful picturesque walks and dramatic scenery.
