Splatthayes Bed & Breakfast Honiton - Splatthayes B&B is set in three and a half acres, the house has log fires, flagstone floors and a wealth of original beams.
Splatthayes is a large, thatched cob house in the quiet and picturesque village of Buckerell. The proprietor, Douglas, has lived here for over eight years, and runs the house to offer maximum relaxation and peace. Splatthayes is a Grade II listed building built in the 16th Century and is full of character.
Locally, there are many miles of footpaths offering splendid walking for the country lover, and quiet rural lanes for the cycling enthusiast. The beautiful South Devon coast is only a short drive away.
Splatthayes is the perfect house for a Relaxation Break, with its warm and informal atmosphere, allowing you to unwind in a friendly environment. The two-day Relaxation Breaks consists of two nights' bed and breakfast and two four course evening meals. Bookings can be flexible and tailored to your required combination of accommodation and meals.
Gift vouchers for Relaxation Breaks have proved popular, so you can pass on the unique Splatthayes experience to family and friends.
Various workshops have been run at Splatthayes in previous years, and the facility is being expanded to cover different subjects. One day workshops have already been run in:
Introduction to Aromatherapay Oils
Introduction to Massage
Introduction to Chinese Meridians
Introduction to Shiatsu
On site Massage (practitioner Level Training)
The new facility will allow us to run a greater variety of courses, such as Art Appreciation or Creative Writing. If you are interested in learning more, or would like to be placed on the mailing list for details of forthcoming events or even have an idea for a course you would like to run, please get in touch. The workshops are friendly and relaxed and can be arranged to suit your interests.
Douglas is a talented cook, and with the help of his Aga he will cater for all tastes. If you have a favourite dish from a previous visit, just ask Douglas to recreate it.
Home grown and local organic produce is used where possible, and there are always vegetarian dishes available. Home made bread and preserves are a speciality. Free range hens roam at Splatthayes and supply our eggs - although quite a few of them don't make it to the breakfast table!
Dinner is a candlelit four course meal served at 7.30 pm. If a member of your group has a special diet, Douglas rises to the challenge and often makes other diners wish they were on that diet too! Just give details at the time of booking. A Sample of meals is shown below:
Smoked Trout with Avocado and Dill Mustard
Cabbage and Nut Parcels with Coriander Sauce
Duck Breast with Blackcurrant Sauce
Chicken fillet stuffed with Apricots and Bacon
Meringue with Strawberries and Bananas
Fresh Fruit Salad
Hazelnut and Raspberry Roûlade
A Selection of Cheese and Biscuits
