Description

Before a busy day out at Blackpool Sands beach or Dartmouth, why not enjoy a relaxing dip in the property’s shared pools.

"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 award-winning 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.

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)!

    Brilliant resort with plenty to do and a great location for Dartmouth etc. The cottage was spacious and well equipped with a large lounge and kitchen/diner and a lovely view of the outdoor pool. The outdoor and indoor pools with hot tubs were superb and we loved the tennis and games room. In fact, its more like a sports hall with the badminton court. On top of that there is a separate snooker room plus another snooker and pool room (and indoor bowls) elsewhere. The grounds are lovely with the walk by the river and through the woods. Lots of wildlife such as herons. Walking distance of two nice pubs. Good BBQ area by the river too. Quite remote which is OK because there is so much to do but it is a bit of a drive up narrow lanes to get to the main road and supermarket/beaches etc. The only negatives were that the pool tiles above the water level were filthy and clearly hadn't been scrubbed for a long time which was disappointing for half term week. Also the children's play area needed a tidy up as there were a lot of weeds and the little playhouse needed a good clean out of overgrowth and cobwebs - again, would have been nice to have been done for half term. That said, the rest of the grounds were very well maintained. Finally, we had the worst bed/mattress ever in the double room. Only a standard double which is a challenge these days and it felt as though you were sleeping on a slope.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback and compliments which are always welcomed. Regarding the outdoor pool, it is always crystal clear but unfortunately, the plants surrounding the pool sometimes stain the water line. The children’s play area has been re barked and tidied up, we apologise for this oversight. We do try our best to utilize the space in our Cottages however the bedroom will only take a standard double which has recently been replaced. We have also fitted a topper to give additional comfort.
