Find cottages in TotnesVisit Totnes

Totnes has a unique laid back atmosphere, lovely river side setting and a rich historical past.

Set in the rolling red-earthed hills of South Devon, the market town of Totnes offers a fascinating history and is often referred to as one of Devon's gems. The town is full of colour and character with individual, quirky shops, cafes and restaurants that sell local produce and a twice weekly market on Fridays and Saturdays. At the picturesque quay you can take ferry trips down the River Dart to Dartmouth.

Visitors to Totnes have a choice of two castles; Berry Pomeroy Castle is rumoured to be the most haunted castle in England while Totnes Castle is well worth the climb up to the castle keep, where you'll be rewarded with sweeping views of the town across to the River Dart.

For a day out with a difference, the Sharpham Vineyard and Cheese Dairy is highly recommended, and China Blue is perfect for a rainy day, where you can create and paint your own pottery and shop for unique gifts and home wares.

There's plenty going on from your Totnes cottage; you'll find a wide range of things to see and do nearby, but if history and visitor attractions aren't your thing, grab your walking boots and head off into the Dartmoor countryside or enjoy a taste of the fresh sea air; you'll be sure to find a welcoming watering hole along the way to enjoy a spot of lunch and a pint of the local ale.

Start your discovery of this wonderful area and search for Totnes holiday cottages today.

"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.

Approached via some stone steps, this property offers spacious accommodation in a single-storey building. It has a lovely, open-plan living room with open fire with dining and kitchen areas, and a French door opening onto an elevated paved patio terrace overlooking the grounds and across the valley.

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)!
