  • "Fabulous. We totally loved our stay, Awe have family and friends who live near by , we showed the cottage off to them, they too loved it, and said they would tell their other family & friends that visit from time to time,all about here."

    Les and Sue so friendly, lovely welcome and welcome pack , “nice touch. They mainly left us to our own devices, but we’re available if needed. We liked that some places can be too pushy and need to know that we liked their accommodation. To us this is where they should be able to rely on good feed back. So let me say once again FABULOUS stay .We would love to return again.

  • "It was perfect, everything you need the garden for our dog was perfect & the use of 2 fields to walk the dog outstanding."

    Mapped walks also great, the views & surrounding area was stunning. Comfortable furniture, bed was comfortable if a little low. All appliances worked well. Would stay again in a heartbeat. If I was being picky Wi-Fi is a little slow but your on holiday so just wait a while.

  • "The cottage was perfect, exceptionally clean and had everything you needed."

    The provisions left for us in the fridge was a welcome find! The garden was perfect for the dogs and the use of the field opposite also. Lovely quiet area but only 10 mins in the car to either Chard or Axminster. Great communication from the owners. Can’t fault it.

  • "We have just returned from a fantastic week at Honey Bee Retreat."

    The property was spotlessly clean with everything we could need. A very welcome cream tea and biscuits when we arrived along with treats for our dog. The enclosed rear garden was great for our dog and well equipped with furniture for us to sit out and enjoy the wonderful views. The adjacent dog walking field was fantastic and it meant we could exercise our dog before taking her out in the car to explore the area. A great central base to explore Devon, Dorset and Somerset. Thanks for a lovely stay. We hope to come back again soon.

  • "Lovely cottage and very pleasant owners good communication great area for sightseeing loved the little garden very well maintained and clean property."

    Problem for us was the very low bed also the one in the kitchen very soft mattress so even though a relaxing break didn't sleep well if these were addressed would be perfect!

  • "A lovely property in an excellent location."

    Spotless and very well equipped. Very friendly owners. The mattress was slightly too firm so you may want to consider a mattress protector if you want something a bit softer, but this was a very minor point in a lovely stay.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at the Honey Bee & would definitely return."

    The peace & quiet was wonderful. Our accommodation was excellent & very spacious considering we had our Great Dane with us ! Prior to going I contacted the owners as I needed extra freezer space . They were able to provide me with a table top freezer for a very small cost of £10 for the week which I was more than happy with . There are two folders containing information of places to go , pubs , restaurants etc & many beautiful walks . The owners Sue & Les have done an amazing job throughout & have thought of everything that you may need whilst there . One of the best places I have stayed . I Highly recommend the Honey Bee & will definitely return. Only downside was having to come home ! Thank you Les .

  • "We had a great stay at Honey Bee Retreat!"

    The cottage was very nice, with a lovely garden that we loved to sit in after spending the day walking with the dog. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and gave us a lovely welcome! The only feedback we would give is that the sofas were a bit firm and not the comfiest (a footstool would be a great addition). But this wouldn’t stop us staying again! We will book again :)

    Sue and Les are very welcoming hosts and they’ve really thought of everything you might need. The cottage is beautifully furnished and is in an excellent location. We easily explored Dorset, Devon and Somerset. Beautiful Lyme Regis and the gorgeous Sandy beach is just a short drive away. All in all a fabulous stay. We hope to return in the future.

  • "Beautifully created holiday let, located at the end of a farm lane, 20 mins drive from Lyme Regis."

    Converted 2 years ago, still feels newly made, lovely design touches, very clean, well equipped (but no dishwasher). Stayed with our 2 daughters and small dog for a week. Internal space perfect for a couple but too small for 4 of us. Private garden was lovely, well fenced in for the dog with beautiful view of surrounding hills, but worth noting grass was fake which makes cleaning up after the dog a little tricky! Overall a lovely stay.

About the location


Chardstock 1 mile; Axminster 4.5 miles; Chard 3 miles; Lyme Regis 8.5 miles.

Tytherleigh is a small village in Devon, on the Fosse Way Roman Road, very close to the borders of Somerset and Dorset, which it actually belonged to until the late 1800s. The village name was first recorded in the mid-12th century and is derived from an Old English phrase meaning ‘thin’ or ‘tender woodland’. Tytherleigh is now an excellent base for walkers, cyclists and horse riders exploring the West Country, with an excellent pub serving delicious food. It is a short walk from a village shop and pub in Tytherleigh, and an easy drive to the popular towns of Axminster and Chard. Each have their own museum and Heritage Centres, interesting shops and wonderful inns serving good food and scrumptious local cider. If you ever doubted the beauty and majesty of this wonderful corner of England, please note that The Blackdown Hills, East Devon, and Dorset AONBs are all just stone’s throw away! You can be sure of picturesque picnic spots and mesmerising country vistas in every direction you look. The impressive Jurassic Coast is also a short drive away to the south, where you can scour the shoreline for fossils at Lyme Regis. An excellent base for friends and families holidaying in Devon.
