Fantastic holiday cottage
We spent 3 nights in Honeycott during Easter and it was absolutely amazing. The cottage is on a working farm with cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, horses and honey shed. We enjoyed every bit of the holiday spent there. A lot of attractions are very close by and there is a shop 5 min away which operates till 9pm in Wheddon cross. It is just a 12 min drive to Dunster castle and drive on A39 to Lynmouth and Lynton is splendid with its views. Exmoor as such surprises you in every mile. Wimbleball lake (15 min drive from the cottage) and walk around the lake to the dam is another best attraction to spend time as a family. Tarr Steps is again 25 min away. It is one of the best holidays ever.
The cottage has everything you need for a holiday and our 11 months old daughter thoroughly enjoyed it just as we did.
Helena and her family were so warm, welcoming and very patient to answer all our questions about the farm. Helena's father, Julian is an awarded bee farmer and he did explain so much about bee farming as I knew nothing about it. I highly recommend a stay to surprise yourself with the views across the farm. And I will definitely go back when my baby reaches the stage of identifying the farm animals.
Many thanks to Helena and Family. :)
Honeycott is situated in the heart of the Exmoor National Park and has breathtaking views towards the coast, across the hills and valleys. This area is very popular with walkers and lovers of nature - anyone just wanting to get away from it all! The cottage is in great central location on Exmoor making it an ideal base, whether you are seeking out the heather-clad moorlands, deep wooded valleys, the highest sea cliffs in England, or looking for the wildlife - Red Deer, Exmoor Ponies, Buzzards to name a few. It is a wonderful place to explore by car or on foot anytime of year. Snowdrop Valley on the outskirts of Wheddon Cross is very popular in February, when people come to see the ‘carpet of snowdrops'. There is a park and ride scheme running from Wheddon Cross car park, which is 3 miles. Within an hours drive there are many attractions to keep you entertained, including Wimbleball Reservoir - just 15 minutes by car - for sailing, boating and fishing.
Wheddon Cross (approx 3 miles) has a well-stocked mini-supermarket, Post Office facilities and petrol station with good opening times. The Rest & Be Thankful Inn is the village pub which serves food and is child and dog friendly. Luxborough is also approx 3 miles and has a village pub, The Royal Oak in Luxborough. There is also a wonderful choice of restaurants, pubs, tea rooms and other shops in the medieval Village of Dunster, approx 5 miles.
Minehead is the main town in West Somerset and is approx 7 miles away. Here you will find the larger supermarkets and petrol stations (Tesco and Morrison's are both on the outskirts of the town), several of the high street banks, plus a range of other shops.
