    "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.

    Ref: 31160


    Located in the village of Cockington, Granary Cottage is a first floor holiday apartment located above one of the prettiest thatched gift shops in the village. Situated close to a pretty tea room, the property has been decorated and furnished to a very good standard. Only 3/4 miles from Torquay’s seafront and 3 miles from the town centre, this is a perfect spot to take a holiday. Whether you like walking, birdwatching or taking a perfect lazy holiday, Cockington has it all. A real picture-postcard village, Cockington has hardly changed over hundreds of years. There is evidence of Iron Age and Saxon settlements near the local pub, and the village is mentioned in the Domesday Book. This thatched village is the perfect setting for a walk, no matter what time of year it is. It has an historic forge, a court and church, tea rooms, thatched pub and, of course, the lakes and woods. The village sits somewhat incongruously, right in the heart of urban Torbay, but stubbornly refuses to be tainted by modern developments. The village is one of the most photographed places in the country, and the surrounding country park and woodland makes it an ideal destination for walking.
    The pride of the village is Cockington Court, originally owned by the Cary family from 1375 to 1654. It is now home to Cockington Chocolate Company with their sweets, truffles and gifts, and a fabulous contemporary arts and crafts hub, showcasing creative arts from, amongst others, glassmakers, a blacksmith and conceptual artists. With beautiful gardens and a fabulous tea room, its a great place to spend the day, with plenty to see and do for the whole family. Cockington Court also has a connection to the English Riviera’s most famous daughter, Agatha Christie. In her youth, she often visited the village, and her novel ’Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?’ is dedicated to her friend Christopher Mallock. The Mallocks regularly staged amateur theatricals at Cockington Court and, despite her terrible shyness, Agatha Christie regularly took part. Think afternoon tea, cricket on the green and the gentle pace of village life you would find in an Agatha Christie Miss Marple novel (without the murders of course!), and you have the rural idyll that is Cockington. If you want to truly experience traditional, English country life, come to Cockington on the English Riviera, South Devon’s beautiful bay.
    Brixham and Paignton are also close by. Take a trip on a steam train from Paignton to Dartmouth, enjoy the theatre at Torquay or take a ferry over to Brixham for the day. There are also many National Trust properties nearby. Beach 3/4 miles. Shop 11/4 miles, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    "Glorious sea views from this tranquil retreat on the breathtaking North Devon coast. Downe Holiday Cottages are set in a stunning Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the Hartland Peninsula."

    These eight individual holiday cottages (refs HTTW, HTTX, HTTY, HTTZ, KAAA, KAAB, KAAC and KAAD) have been lovingly converted and sit around a pretty courtyard beside the owners’ home, Downe House, a listed farmhouse dating back to the 15th century in the midst of rolling farmland that slopes gently to the coast. All the properties are spacious, have en-suite bathrooms and many have sea views north to Lundy Island and west over the Atlantic. Guests are free to use the 7 acres of land, including a 2-acre meadow and play area which is ideal for children to let off steam. Guests may use the gym facilities and spa facilities free of charge. The gym is equipped with Life Fitness equipment and is accessible all day. The spa consists of a spa bath (with seats for 8 adults), a steam room (with seats for 7 adults), and a sauna, and is available to guests from 6pm-9pm each evening. There is also a reading room on site which is available for guests. A towelling robe is provided free of charge for each adult.
    The perfect setting for walking holidays, cycling holidays, romantic or family breaks, this relaxing holiday retreat is just 1 mile from the South West Coastal Path, as well as many sandy beaches and hidden coves. To the south west lies Hartland Abbey and to the north west lies Blegberry, a fortified farm dating from the 1600s. In the distance, the stone tower of St Nectan’s Church rises above the picturesque village of Stoke.

    This is a perfect spot at any time of year, with fishing, golf, horse riding, surfing, sailing and walking all available in this stunning area.
