Built in 2020, The Beehive is a cosy cabin by the river in Devon's Tamar Valley. Sleeping up to four people, this 'tiny house', though simply furnished and equipped, caters to all your needs and offers you the chance to immerse yourself in nature and tranquility. An enchanting getaway, with a camping pitch for two additional people if your group is larger.
An excellent escape from the hubbub of day to day life, a stay in the Beehive is a good reboot for the soul. Set on farmland next to the River Tamar, it's perfectly situated for boating, kayaking, fishing and picnicking. And nearby there are miles of beautiful footpaths, not to mention beaches, village pubs and historic properties. This place really is conducive to switching off completely!
From the cabin you can do a lovely 1.5-2 hour circular walking route or a 30 minute meander will take you to the station and the local village, home to a pub, a post office, a pharmacy, a fish and chip shop and two mini supermarkets. The surrounding land is teeming with wildlife, from buzzards and badgers to foxes and deer, and after a day of exploring you can have a meal out at The Edgcumbe Hotel in Bere Alston or The Old Plough Inn at Bere Ferrers. A little further afield you will find the markets and restaurants of Tavistock, not to mention the Burrator Reservoir and historic Buckland Abbey.
The property is easily reached by car and there is free parking on the premises, or you can get a train to nearby Bere Alston.

The cabin can sleep 2 adults and 2 children (or small adults), and it is one double, one single and one bunk bed. There's a separate bathroom (attached to the cabin but you need to go outside to access it) with a shower and washbasin. The compost toilet is about 10 meters from the cabin.
Outside there is lots of space to explore and direct access to the river.
Conditions of Rental
No smoking. We are pet friendly (£5 per dog per night) but please be aware that there are free range ducks and chickens roaming around the farm so dogs will need to be kept under control. Due to additional Covid 19 safety measures, we ask all guests to check out by 9am on the day of departure to give time for a full deep clean before the next guests. Check in after 4pm on arrival day. The owners live nearby should you need them. Minimum stay 3 nights during July and August. If you want to use the camping space outside the beehive, nightly cost for the pitch is £10, plus £5 per adult (£3.50 per child, children under 5 are free) per night.
