Property Description

"Devon’s best kept secret... Just inland from some of Devon’s loveliest and most natural beaches lies the village of Tuckenhay set along Bow Creek on the River Dart...."

In a setting of stunning natural beauty, Tuckenhay Mill is the centrepiece of a cluster of country homes and cottages with superb leisure facilities including two indoor and one outdoor pools, making it ideal for a family holiday for all ages.
The Mill which once produced some of the finest paper in the land, nestles in the green and shady Bow Creek, a languid inlet of the River Dart where private yachts have replaced the old tall-masted ships and barges. Around the mill are all the buildings which once went to make up a small bustling village port. These listed buildings have been sympathetically restored and converted to a delightful range of holiday properties to suit larger family parties. Awards have been won for the conversion of buildings and the conservation of the area. With so much to do, many holidaymakers return year after year.




South Devon awaits you
Tuckenhay is only a 20-minute drive from the superb Blue Flag beach at Blackpool Sands and about 30 minutes from a surfing beach at Bantham, as well as some of the best natural beaches to be found anywhere in the UK.
There is also extensive access to the coastal footpath for walking and the wilderness that is Dartmoor for walking, climbing and riding.
This is a mecca for ramblers, bird-watchers, swimmers, surfers, horse riders, golfers and those interested in fishing, boating, sailing and windsurfing.
In addition, there are many historic NT houses to visit including Agatha Christies’s Greenway as well as a local vineyard (with award-winning wines) at Sharpham.
Tuckenhay is only 5 miles inland from Dartmouth and 3 from the market town of Totnes. Village shop 3½ miles. Riverside inn and restaurant within walking distance.



A superb choice of cottages
Each of the cottages has been individually styled to offer comfortable and spacious accommodation. Great care has been taken to retain the feel of the original buildings and extensive use has been made of traditional materials. Most have garden, terrace or patio. Individual cottage details are shown on the following pages.
Many cottages have more than one bathroom and some have an en-suite bathroom to every bedroom. Kitchens are comprehensively equipped: most have dishwashers and all have microwave cookers.
Couples and honeymooners will feel snug and comfortable in the small cottages: Mill Leat, Mill Stream and Mill Spring. Families can spread out in Papermaker’s or Turbine Cottages, while Mill Lodge, Edgecombe Barn and Tuckenhay Mill House will sleep larger parties in comfort. Of course, combinations of cottages can accommodate bigger gatherings of family or friends.

This well-appointed cottage has a large south-facing terrace and offers ‘upside-down’ accommodation on two floors. Upstairs sitting-room opening to terrace. Fully fitted kitchen/dining area.

IN SYMPATHY WITH THE ENVIRONMENT
Tuckenhay Mill has led the way with most of the pools being heated by ground source heat pumps. Awards have been given for energy saving as well as pool design and conversion of buildings. 2008 saw the extension of the
20 acres of stunning natural landscape opening up nearly a mile of footpaths through dells, meadows and woodlands along with a natural waterfall. This is the place to enjoy a personal ‘Spring or Autumn Watch’ with swallows in the log store, buzzards on the adjacent hillside, owls in the woods and ducks and swans down on Bow Creek. Strolls can be taken with the dog and picnics enjoyed on a bench by the river. Children can stroke the goats and even collect eggs for breakfast from the hens (when laying)!

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Very comfortable cottage. We felt completely at home, and the owners gave us exactly the right balance of being there if we needed them and otherwise leaving us in peace. Facilities are amazing, so this is a place that can be enjoyed at any time of year, whatever the weather. We will be back! Nov 2012.
  2. Actually in The Clocktower, not 4 castle Cottage, which is a delightful property close to the leisure facilities and well equipped.The sports facilities are great and the whole site is beautifully laid out and maintained.We had a lovely week there and would go again another year. May 2012.
  3. Nice outside sitting area. Very clean. May 2010.
  4. A well equipped cottage with lovely views - great for a small family. Feb 2010.
  5. Very comfortable, well-equipped cottage with everything to make it a home from home. Warm and cosy on colder days, but lovely to make use of the terrace on sunny days. Sept 2009.
  6. Lovely situation and great facilities. Aug 2009.
  7. Would have marked as excellent but the twin bedroom was a bit frowsy. The frowsiness disappeared after a couple of days with the window open. Sept 2009.
  8. The cottage was very cosy, it had everything we needed and a great suntrap of a balcony. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable - a important factor for me as I suffer with back trouble and was 5 months pregnant. The facilities were great and it was lovely to come home to the swimming and grounds for a relax after a busy day out and about. Great facilities for young children; Sophie (2) loved it!. We will definitely be back! May 2009.
  9. Property was clean and in a good state of repair. The brochure description didn’t mention any shower facilities and we were glad to find that there was a good quality over bath shower. Car parking was well organised and close to the property. July 2009.
  10. The facilities at Tuckenhay Mill were excellent. We loved the swimming pools and the attention to detail in the cottage was impressive. Stair gates were really useful as our grandson was crawling. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise too. We would thoroughly recommend Tuckenhay to our friends, particularly groups with children. March 2009.
  11. The balcony/ terrace was fantastic and was perfectly situated to get the sun all day. Tuckenay Mill itself was a beautiful location, and actually was more idyllic than it looked in the brochure. It was very secluded and lush, and there was enough space not to feel crammed in with all the other guests. July 2008.
  12. We have had a great week. Enjoyed good walks from the cottage and had a good meal at the Watermans Arms. The facilities are excellent and the surrounding area very beautiful. Feb 2007.
  13. The facilities were excellent and were a real bonus to the holiday. Our toddler particularly loved the warm swimming pool and play area. May 2007.
  14. Great pools. Totnes rare breeds farm a good visit for "hands on" with animals. Watermans Arms good for food. Aug 2006.
  15. This is our 2nd year at Tuckenhay Mill and it is still as good as ever. Lovely clean cottage, pools still popular with us. Pennywell Farm well worth a visit for families with kids. Be back next year! Sept 2006.
  16. This is the 3rd holiday we have had at Tuckenhay Mill and every time it has been fantastic. The on site facilities kept the kids entertained this week. Nov 2006.
