About this listing
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.
PRESS ALERT: TO BE FEATURED IN THE SATURDAY TELEGRAPH- 18 MARCH 2017
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, dishwasher tablets and essentials are included. There is a washer/dryer in a utility room upstairs.
We leave you a welcome hamper with Prosecco, nibbles, chocolate, bread, milk and butter.
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 recommend taking off your shoes in house
- We ask that if you are sat outside after 10pm that there is no loud music or noise.
- Please clean up after your dog
- We do not permit dogs in bedrooms
- As it is a timber house we do not allow fires in the garden nor candles in the house, we leave you some electric candles.

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.
