Beach 200 yards

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.

    a lovely location on the Devon coast. A beautiful building with great history ...I felt fortunate to stay in such a historical home and glad that it is still being used as a place for holidays. Certainly not Fawlty Towers (reference to newspaper article on wall!). We would certainly chose to return to this property.

    A special place to stay. We had glorious weather and were in a magical setting for a group holiday. The place is lovely with lots of features.

    A very interesting house in a beautiful situation, and a good base for both short and long walks. Comfortable, clean and well-equipped, though I had some difficulty trying to hold the (modern!) bath plug open to let the water out. It would have been good if there could have been some firewood in or by the house, at least for the first afternoon/evening.

    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:

    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.
