Offwell Woods
starting PointStart : Near Honiton Golf Course

A 5 mile hike to Offwell, famous for its fauna, particularly its bluebells.

We suggest you download the GPX file and follow it on your mobile.

You pass the Bishop's tower, an eighty foot tall square tower built by Bishop Edward Copplestone in 1828.

He was appointed Bishop of Llandaff in South Wales, and decided that if he could see his diocese from the top of the tower he would save himself the journey of having to visit it! He must have been blessed with enviable vision!

Some spectacular views of Honiton.
