Set along the edge of the Dark Skies Reserve on the outskirts of Exmoor, this charming property is a star-gazers’ paradise. With the chance to witness the Milky Way on a clear night, it is the ideal location for a romantic retreat. Inside, the 16th-century converted barn oozes character with its vaulted beamed ceiling and rustic cob walls, and the cosy decor and wood burner adds to its enticing charms.

Step inside and you’ll immediately be struck by the inviting atmosphere of this peaceful escape which offers tranquil views across the mature garden and to the fields beyond. Within the open-plan studio space, the comfy sofa (bed) is approached via two steps - and is the perfect place to curl up with a good book in front of the wood burner. A compact but well-equipped kitchenette ensures you can comfortably cater for your stay and the spacious sleeping area - complete with king-size bed - is a sumptuous place to lay your head after a day of adventure in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Completing the floor plan is a luxurious shower room. Outside, there is a secluded furnished seating area, ideal for enjoying a nightcap under the starry skies.

The barn is located on the edge of Exmoor on a working farm that specialises in Regenerative Agriculture and so, offers a spectacular location abundant in wildlife - it is a truly special retreat. With no light pollution stargazing is a must, but if you are also looking for daytime adventures you can have your pick of coast and countryside. Walking routes can be picked up from your doorstep, and you’re 13.5 miles from the fantastic Exmoor. For shops and supplies, the town of Tiverton is 4 miles away.

Would 100% recommend as the place was absolutely stunning, everything felt cosy but luxurious, and was spotlessly clean. The hosts were very friendly and helpful, went out of their way to make us feel at home and had some good insights into the local area. Will definitely be booking again!

We had a fantastic weeks stay in Beehive Cottage, the hosts were very friendly and approachable and spent time recommending things in the local area and generally chatting. The accommodation is great, well appointed and very clean. Location is tucked out of the way in a lovely spot although not too far from town and within easy reach of many attracRead moretions. We would highly recommend a stay at the property. Hide
