Description

If relaxing is your holiday style; enjoy a romantic stroll here amongst the grounds or a soak in the Jacuzzi.

"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)!

    We took our puppy with us and she had a fantastic time. The site is remote from traffic and noise so we all had a totally relaxing time. The pools and hot tubs were great and our dog especially liked the river and waterfall. Can't wait until we go again.

    We loved the beautiful complex and nearby walks. The spa pool has really impressive facilities. Air jets and water massaging was superb, and very big for the number of guests. Could do with a bit a grouting cleaned up. Great outdoor hot tub too. It was Easter weekend so I guess we were paying peak prices but I was surprised about a few things that made the experience 'hostel - like' which was a shame as the environment and expectation due to cost was to have something a little closer to luxury. There was no hairdryer (but there was iron, board and clothes dryer). The saunas require £1 and you wait 20 mins for them to warm up. We didn't realise you would have to go outside in swimmers to go between house, spa, hot tubs. Would have been good to have had robes and slippers, perhaps have it added to cottage instructions so you think to bring them. There is a pub in walking distance luckily open for breakfast as no nearby shop and we didn't think to bring anything for breakfast. Would have been happy to pay a bit extra for breakfast bits and pieces. All the videos are vhs, if you have any old vhs home videos at home, good opportunity to bring them with you to see them! There was a list of 6 things to do before leaving in the morning. Which included wash up your breakfast things and put away. Leave as you found. Strip beds and fold up duvet covers. I didn't really mind doing these things but the rather strict sounding notice made me feel a bit rebellious! Felt a bit rich to charge as much as they did to bring our dog, we were made very welcome but unsure why the additional charge when no dog bowls, bed and we were instructed to clean up. As it was, we were kindly offered by the owner / manager to leave late in the morning so we dutifully followed the instructions to the letter! As I was stripping the bed, thought how comfy it was with good quality linen, so there were some touches of luxury! I hope my comments guide others to prepare their trip and expectations, and perhaps some tiny changes made by management can make all the difference to guest experiences. Overall, I'd recommend for the spa and comfy cottage.

    Very nice and relaxing. Should really have a tv in the bedroom and can't expect people to do a thorough clean, they are on holiday. Charge an extra £10 and pay for a cleaner. Didn't put us off, we will be going back.
