Business Description
Stunning Grade II Listed Inn in Highly Desirable Village. 3 Interconnecting Trading Areas Including Dining Room. Superior Private Accommodation with 3 Double Bedrooms.

Broadhembury is a village and civil parish in East Devon, situated about 5 miles north-west of Honiton. The village is only 5 minutes from the M5, Junction 28 Cullompton, and approximately 30 minutes from the centre of Exeter. Broadhembury is located within the Blackdown Hills, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and must be one of the most attractive cob-and-thatch villages in Devon: it is rural East Devon at its best. The village is a popular place to live and has a great community spirit, a good primary school and a post office.

The Drewe Arms is a substantial, part thatched, Grade II listed detached property standing in it’s own grounds in the heart of the village. The property has many period features including mullion windows and a large stone fireplace which is the centrepiece of this attractive building which abounds in character. The property sits in a generous plot with 2 gardens, a vegetable plot, outbuildings and parking.

Broadhembury is located in the centre of horseshoe of the hills of Hembury Fort and North Hill, which creates a sheltered, beautiful valley. Hembury Fort, a prehistoric hill fort dating from 3000 BCE, was also used by the Romans. After the departure of the Romans, this area of Devon was sparsely occupied by the Celtic people – in those years Hembury Fort was called Handria. With the arrival of the Saxons, little wattle churches were built and the villagers lived in little cells or wooden huts. The Saxons brought the plough and cultivated the holdings.

Henry VII presented the land at Broadhembury to his faithful courtier, Thomas Wriothesley, Earl of Southhampton, who sold it Sir Thomas Drewe, son of Edward Drewe. Edward Drewe, a sergeant at arms to Queen Elizabeth, who was responsible for the building of the manor house adjoining a small farm house at The Grange in about 1603.

Broadhembury has changed very little in outward appearance during the last century, with many of the thatch and cob cottages standing since the 16th century.

Julius Drewe purchased the inn and half the village at the turn of the 20th century. Broadhembury House, a large thatched residence, was converted by him from an old cottage. The garden, which is of particular beauty, is occasionally open to the public.

The descendants of Julius Drewe (who also built Castle Drogo in Drewsteignton), still live in the village, in Broadhembury House. It is thanks to Sir Cedric Drewe, who was a Member of Parliament for many years that the village has kept its excellent character over the years.
