A beautifully designed timber house set in rolling English countryside with just the hoot of an owl and baa of a sheep for company. Long walks, country pubs, amazing views and total luxury. Beehive Cottage is designed by award winning Architects, it has an eclectic interior with timber exterior, polished concrete floors with underfloor heating and plywood stairs.

The space



Beehive Cottage is a very contemporary architect designed house, what makes it unique is that it is set in a very secluded spot in the middle of the countryside. It is a sustainable design with solar panels, heat pump and solar hot water.

There's an open plan kitchen/living space with woodburner on the ground floor with a shower room, and two double bedrooms at first floor with another shower room.

The two bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with super king (or twin) and kingsize Hypnos hotel beds, we use White Company Egyptian cotton linens, and soft fluffy cotton white towels. We also leave you 'Basic Earth' designer toiletries and hand wash/cream in both bathrooms.

The kitchen is well equipped with oven, hob, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. There is a Nespresso coffee machine and some capsules, tea, sugar and dishwasher tablets are included. There is a washer/dryer in a utility room upstairs.

We leave you a welcome hamper with wine, nibbles and chocolate.

Guest access

The house adjoins the main house but guests have their own front door, covered parking and orchard garden, totally separate to the main house. There is a field and brook and you are welcome to use it (subject to sheep and cows). A fantastic walk starts from the house and takes you up a hill to the beacon, then back around the fields to complete the loop.

Interaction with guests

We live in the main house with our labrador Ricky, but the two houses are self contained with their own gardens. We can recommend some great local pubs and restaurants, and some fantastic walks and beaches with cake and coffee at the end of them!

Other things to note

We can arrange the superking bed in bedroom 1 as a double or two twins.

We had the pleasure of staying at Beehive Cottage for a full month and by the end of our stay it truly felt like home - we didn’t want to leave! Mark and Liam were the most wonderful hosts and went above and beyond to make our time both comfortable and memorable. They have thought of everything to make your stay a perfect experience with many luxury touches, along with a sophisticated eco design. We loved the bathroom with its big open shower, soft, fluffy white towels and the lovely smelling hand soaps, it felt like we were staying in a boutique hotel! We are normally dying to get back to our own bed after being away for so long, but we slept so well for the entirety of our stay. The beds are incredibly comfortable with the surrounds being so peaceful, that at night the only sound to be heard is of a distant owl, magical! The kitchen is fully equipped with high end appliances, which was great for us as we love to cook! We also got to spend many evenings barbecuing and sitting on the outside deck in complete peace and quiet of the countryside. On the cooler evenings Netflix was an added bonus. We really enjoyed being able to walk straight out of the cottage on one of the recommended loops and couldn’t get enough of the beautiful and expansive views of the countryside. It was also a highlight spotting deer grazing in the neighbouring fields. Staying at Beehive Cottage makes you feel like you are miles away from everything. It is incredibly peaceful being surrounded by nothing but beautiful scenery and nature. The big plus of this, however is that the cottage is conveniently only a 10 minute drive into Honiton town or 20 to Branscombe beach, our favourite spot, with wonderful cliff walks. It really is an ideal place to escape from everything, and a wonderful location to explore the picturesque towns, villages, national parks and the jurassic coast that make East Devon a magical experience. Mark and Liam’s ‘helpful hints’ booklet was a gem. We took much of their advice by eating at recommended restaurants/cafes, visiting particular places and exploring Dartmoor. They have great taste and knowledge of the local area. We are already planning our next trip and can’t wait to return to this little slice of green paradise!

A beautiful house and setting, great bedroom with fine rural views. Very dog friendly, from the field to run the dog around in to a downstairs shower to clean them off in. Mark & Liam made charming and engaged hosts.

Welcoming and helpful, Mark&Liam hit just the right notes. The cottage is clean, comfortable and private. We had a very nice short family break, away from the bustle of London. Thank you!

Our stay at Beehive cottage was absolutely lovely! We would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get away and switch off in a gorgeous setting and a really amazingly designed and equipped contemporary cottage. Great walks in the surrounds! Mark and Liam are fantastic hosts!

The communication from Mark and Liam was excellent throughout, including details of how to find the property along some very narrow country roads. Beehive Cottage is beautifully designed and exceptionally clean. All the rooms are very tastefully furnished and the bedrooms would not be out of place in a 5 star boutique hotel. Our hosts made sure we had everything we needed and were on hand to answer any questions. There is a lovely garden with a small brook running through it and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Lyme Regis is approximately a 25 minute drive away and offers some great restaurants, shops and walks. All in all it was one of the best self catering properties we have stayed in and one we would highly recommend!

This is an amazing house that is located in an amazing spot. Perfect for anyone who wants to get away from it all, have good night sleeps, and just enjoy nature. Walking around here is fantastic. We loved it so much. Mark, Liam and Ricky the dog were very welcoming. And we love the Beehive cottage also, it feels very close to home.

Couple of guys living in Devon trying to grow our own veg on a small holding. We love curry, going to the theatre, drinks, cooking, running and travel. We are both architects and design contemporary wooden houses, some of which you can stay in. We have a black labrador dog called Ricky.
