The kitchen is fairly well equipped and had a cooker, microwave, toaster and kettle along with lots of cutlery and kitchenware so we were able to cook a full meal on the first night, but we had quite big lunches on the other two days so just had snacks for dinner on those nights. There are two heaters (a fire heater in the snug and an electric heater in the kitchen) and also the bed has an electric blanket so it stayed warmed throughout the evenings and into the morning, when we were woken by the sunlight coming through the roof window and the birds chirping away.
There are lots of quirky but sustainable features inside too, from the whole structure being made from wood to old symbols being used as lightshades above the stairs. There are also lots of bunches of faux flowers dotted around which adds a pretty touch.
Honeyside Down is close to Okehampton Castle and it’s also right around the corner from the old Okehampton Railway Station which has the Railway Café – a lovely stop for breakfast one morning. We also drove down to the Eden Project for a full day out and then we drove round the Dartmoor National Park on a bit of a rainy day, stopping in Tavistock, Two Bridges and Chagford on the way round – some lovely small, independent shops to visit!
We had such a lovely stay at Humble Bee and I would definitely recommend a visit. It's small but so cosy and lovely to get away from real life for a few days!
