Honey Cottage Supports the
Villages near Lapford:
Honey Cottage is an idyllic grade II listed thatched cottage built during the 17th century. This traditional Devonshire cottage is situated in a central position in a charming conservation area in the small village of Lapford which is located deep in the heart of rural Mid Devon. This is an ideal self catering holiday cottage for a small group or family (sleeps 4 + cot) who would like a rural retreat away from the holiday crowds in the busy tourist areas around the coasts of Devon and the West Country. Perfect as a base for a family summer holiday, a romantic winter weekend break or a getaway in the mild Devon spring and autumn.
This quaint old chocolate box cottage is bursting with character with a stable door, low ceilings, exposed beams and an Inglenook fireplace with an original bread oven. There are two comfortable bedrooms (one double, one twin) with beautiful views over the garden and the surrounding Devon countryside. You can curl up by the fire in the cosy sitting room with a lovely log burning stove. The kitchen is fully equipped for self catering or if you prefer to eat out there are many pubs and restaurants nearby serving delicious food as well as real ales. To the front of the cottage there is a pretty south facing garden with seating area and a barbeque, ideal for 'al fresco' eating or relaxing in the sunshine.

Lapford being in the centre of Devon, is perfectly situated for outdoor activities such as walking with a network of footpaths and bridleways throughout the area. We welcome well behaved dogs (see dog policy), so this would make a perfect walking holiday for your pet too! For serious hiking we are located a short distance from the Two Moors Way and the Tarka Trail walking routes. Other activities include cycling, golf, fishing, horse riding or simply relaxing in the fully enclosed private garden. Both Exmoor and Dartmoor National Parks are easily accessible. There are many local tourist attractions nearby including Eggesford Forest and the magnificent North Devon and North Cornwall surf beaches (including Saunton, Woolacombe, Croyde and Putsborough). The amazing Eden Project in Cornwall makes an ideal day trip. For shopping there are the historic market towns of Crediton and Chulmleigh close by, a little further away are Great Torrington, Okehampton, Tiverton, Tavistock and South Molton. All these market towns are very picturesque and have many independent shops. For more extensive shopping facilities and more tourist attractions, the Cathedral city of Exeter and the historic town of Barnstaple are also an easy drive away.
