Stanhope House is situated off the High Street and is a short flat walk to local shops churches, library, restaurants, coffee bars and numerous antique shops.

It provides accommodation of a high standard for older people seeking to live a relatively independent life with the security and companionship of a small household.  

Further information:

The Abbeyfield movement was founded in the 1950's as an expression of Christian concern for older people which took the form of a community effort to provide residents with their own homes, within a framework of small secure households which could become the goodwill and friendly contact in the local area.  The Abbeyfield is a not-for-profit charitable organisation.  It is managed by a Committee of 8-9 volunteers elected by the Society's local membership and accountable to them as well as a house committee of local volunteers.

Abbeyfield Honiton sets out to provide a special type of accommodation which serves to bridge the gap between someone's own home and a care home.  It provides another option for older people who no longer feel able to lead a completely independent life in a private house but who like to be active.  We do not provide personal care that is offered in a care home.

The key figure in the house is the house manager.  Her duties are principally the general wellbeing and day to day running of the house but she will also look after residents suffering from any sort of minor health upsets which normal families would expect to manage.  Residents register with the local doctor and use his or her services as they would in an ordinary private house.  The house manager is on hand to provide assistance to contact help and deal with little emergencies.


Honiton is about 18 miles east of Exeter on the A30 and about 19 miles west of Ilminster. Sidmouth and the south coast is about 11 miles and Axminster 11 miles. The M5 at Junction 28 is 11 miles and Ottery St Mary about five miles. Fast trains to London (Waterloo) take just over three hours.
