About Exmoor and West Somerset
Bees Knees and Honeycott Cottages have recently been converted from a barn into 2 luxury self-catering
cottages, accommodating up to 4 people in each. Situated in the heart of the Exmoor National Park they
both have breathtaking views towards the sea and across the hills and valleys.
Exmoor National Park covers 265 square miles of Devon and Somerset with over 500 miles of beautiful
walks straight from your doorstep.
The area is popular with walkers and lovers of nature, thereby making the accommodation popular with
couples and families just wanting to get away from it all, especially out of season. Families with children
will be in their element with so much to see and do.
Its central location makes it an ideal base to explore the Exmoor National Park. Exmoor is a special place
of wild heather moorland, deep wooded valleys, streams, lanes full of wild flowers and an abundance of
wildlife, Red Deer, Exmoor Ponies and Buzzards. It is a wonderful place to explore by car or on foot
anytime of year.
