  • “As we came through the gates, we knew we had found somewhere special.”

    ... Honey House was a delight, set within its own private garden but part of expansive grounds all beautifully kept - to us it was a bit of paradise. The online photos do not disappoint! The cottage itself was immaculately clean, and very well presented, modern but cosy with everything you need. Richard the owner, who is the most welcoming and friendly person you could wish to meet, clearly takes immense pride in ensuring the cottage and gardens are nothing short of perfect. We had good weather ...

    ... Honey House was a delight, set within its own private garden but part of expansive grounds all beautifully kept - to us it was a bit of paradise. The online photos do not disappoint! The cottage itself was immaculately clean, and very well presented, modern but cosy with everything you need. Richard the owner, who is the most welcoming and friendly person you could wish to meet, clearly takes immense pride in ensuring the cottage and gardens are nothing short of perfect. We had good weather during our stay, and took advantage of having breakfast on the patio and soaking up the sunshine later in the day. The cottage and grounds are totally private and not overlooked in any way. All in all Honey House’s peace and tranquility made it one of our best holidays yet and a guaranteed return.

The property

In Combebow, a private, detached little house (originally used for storing and bottling honey) in 54 acres of meadows and bluebell woods through which you are welcome to walk, with the River Lew tumbling past (private fishing).

Also in the grounds are the owners' house and a 12th century mill registered with English Heritage - all the original machinery is still there.

To its front, an enclosed garden, well-tended and much loved, with terrace (table/chairs, barbecue), wisteria arbour and willow 'igloo', serene wooded views and abundant bird life.

Inside, it is neat, modern and well done with terracotta flooring in open-plan living/dining/kitchen with MP3 player, TV/DVD and step up to kitchen area (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker); attractive downstairs bathroom (suite, shower over bath).

Open tread stairs up to landing with step up to two bedrooms - a double and a twin, both with Velux windows and sloping ceilings.

An oasis of tranquillity. Combebow: hamlet in a wooded valley just north-west of Dartmoor.

Lydford and the open moor, 5 miles.

Okehampton (small town, golf, tennis, indoor swimming pool, cinema), 8 miles.
