The Old Mill is ideal for a family seaside holiday or a relaxing escape at any time of year. Just a stones throw from the secluded sand, rock and pebble beach it sits in the tiny cliff top hamlet of Bucks Mills, one of the most beautiful in north Devon, a secluded hidden gem with pretty whitewashed cottages dotted along a wooded valley at the end of a no through road. This delightful, spacious, detached holiday home is one of the last adjacent to the steep clifftop pathway which leads down to the glorious beach overlooking Lundy Island and the Atlantic Ocean. There is fishing, bird watching, riding, golf, surfing and sailing close by. The coastal path passes by the cottage and leads to the famous fishing village of Clovelly and the unspoilt beach at Peppercombe, or for the energetic, walk all the way to Westward Ho! A village store and post office is one mile away and nearby Bideford has restaurants and town amenities along with boat trips to Lundy Island, or hire a bike and explore the nearby Tarka Trail. RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Docton Mill and Hartland Quay are well worth a visit along with pretty fishing villages to explore including nearby Instow and Appledore. For family fun visit the Big Sheep and Milky Way Adventure Parks. Beach 200 yards. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

    Overall nice house in a very pictoresque location and very near the sea and local walks. The top floor was comfortable and clean with its bathroom and additional en-suite toilet / sink and the separate shower in a cupboard type location. I found the cleaning On the ground floor to be very basic and have never seen such dirty mop unit. There was even a slug on the broom. as a result I kept cleaning the downstairs as I felt responsible having booked the cottage as a reunion for three families. the sofas were comfortable but the cushions kept on slipping. We had a good time overall but that background feeling meant I was happy to return to my clean house.

    Response from: Administrator

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I'm glad you enjoyed your time overall and am sorry that the cleaning downstairs wasn't spot on on this occasion. There has been a change of cleaners recently to ensure best standards, perhaps your stay was just before this. These old houses do throw up all sorts of surprises but your comments have been noted and the mop unit has been renewed. I know what you mean about the sofa cushions and am going down next weekend with super strong Velcro to fix this.

    We spent a lovely week at the cottage, there was plenty of room for the 4 adults and 3 children staying. We found the cottage to be very warm and cosy especially in the evenings in front of the fires.

    A beautiful and tranquil location close to the coast. The old Mill has a lot of character and charm and we would recommend it. However, it would have benefited from some heating prior to our arrival as it was very cold, damp and musty. A lot of pan handles were loose posing a danger hazard. Main light switch in lounge is situated so high up on wall near ceiling. There were no torches to be found despite being mentioned in the visitors info file. Several bedroom lamps were either not working or bulbs needed replacing. Perhaps the agents need to make more regular visits/checks.

    There were some difficult steps and hard floors for young children. However it was a charming property, very near the beach and along the coastal path. Parking for cars was difficult however and other residents seemed to resent it and grumble. You did need a car however to reach the property.

    We had an amazing time. The cottage was beautiful and located a stroll from the coast. It was very clean, cosy and we warmed it up in no-time! The rooms were all spacious and I really liked how there's an authentic character to every room - and the cottage itself. I also liked how there's multiple garden-features to the property (the stair case that leads up to the top, which has a wonderful viewpoint). We couldn't go fishing (unfortunately), as the weather was slightly choppy out in the sea. That aside, we went to Bude beach, visited a farm shop, set a bbq and went to see the sunset from the coast. We also had time to speak to some of the locals - you're very fortunate and blessed to own that property. I've already spoken to some of my colleagues at work about the trip and hopefully you get to hear from them in the near future.
