The property

This unique, human-sized beehive sits in a woodland setting in the village of Okehampton, Devon.

Boasting characterful features over three floors, with a private outdoor bath and a shared sunken hot tub, Humble Bee is a special escape for couples seeking an adventure in Devon.

Head inside and on the top floor you’ll find thick furs and a king-size bed suspended in the ceiling, whilst on the middle floor lies a delightful sitting area, where you can relax on the settee whilst the light from the honeycomb feature wall and heater flickers off the reclaimed crates and barrels.

Continue to the ground-floor, where you can get to work on a favourite dish from home, making use of the combi oven/microwave with 2-ring hob before sitting at the dining table for a candle lit dinner.

Make the most of the private outdoor bath, sipping champagne as you soak up the wonderfully creative habitat of Humble Bee.

About the location


Exeter 23 miles.

Okehampton is a busy market town on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park and near the highest and most dramatic areas of the moor, where Yes Tor rises to a height above 2000 feet. To the north of Okehampton are some beautiful rolling Devon hills where small farming villages nestle amidst woods and fields with plenty of gently flowing rivers. The fabulous Roadford Reservoir offers a multitude of watersport activities and fishing opportunities. Okehampton has a prominent medieval castle overlooking a wooded river valley, the Museum of Dartmoor Life and Okehampton train station, which has been restored to its 1950s glory: The Dartmoor Line now operates a service between Okehampton and Exeter every hour, 7 days a week. The town also has access to fabulous walks and Simmons Park where you’ll find a children’s adventure playground. This area of Devon has plenty of farm shops and country inns serving good food where visitors can spend time relaxing and unwinding amongst unspoilt countryside.
