Find cottages in Dartmouth

The historic town of Dartmouth has a rich naval tradition and is located in a picturesque bay on the banks of the River Dart.

The town has strong connections with the Royal Navy and is famous as the location of Dartmouth Naval College. It’s also been the place where in times past plundering pirates would set out to plunder and the Pilgrim Fathers set out for America.

This characterful town has winding narrow streets, quirky shops, art galleries and delicatessens. By the quayside you''ll be able to watch the brightly coloured boats come and go. Visitors are able to board the ferries that ply the River Dart or climb aboard the Dartmouth Steam Railway.

From your holiday cottage enjoy the beautiful surrounding coast and countryside including Blackpool Sands, a stretch of well-maintained shingle beach offering safe swimming and ample parking. Further along the coast you''ll find Slapton Sands, where a tank stands as a stark reminder of the military history of this place and the ill-fated D-Day training operations during WWII. Now it offers a scenic haven, with a lake and nature reserve behind the beach. You could also pay a visit to Agatha Christie''s holiday home, which she called the ''loveliest place in the world’; Greenway is now a National Trust property with beautiful river views, woodland and walled flower gardens.

    Rosehill is a well-loved holiday home which would suit a family or group of friends and makes a great choice whether looking for a summer destination or a cosy winter hideaway. This lovely country cottage is a spacious detached period property, set in an elevated position in the quaint little picturesque seaside village of Slapton which is dotted with pretty thatched cottages, and just a short walk away from the well known and much favoured beach at Slapton Sands. There is no other place like Slapton Sands - a wide stretch of beach and a fresh water lagoon divided by the coastal road that runs from Kingsbridge to Dartmouth, the beach itself is a beautiful pebbly beach that stretches for almost 2 miles along the South Devon coastline. It is a firm favourite with families and tourists and has a well-documented history, being the rehearsal area for the D-Day landings. A Sherman tank now sits alongside the beach as a memorial. The wildlife in the area is abundant with the fresh water lagoon located right next to the beach road. Today, Slapton Sands is a beach where families and friends can enjoy great holidays. South Devon’s Mediterranean-style climate means that the sea is calm and there are plenty of water sports such as surfing, windsurfing and canoeing to try out. The beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the summer months and there is a flag system in place advising holidaymakers where it’s safe to swim and when to stay out of the water. Many visitors come to observe wildlife in the nature reserve. Throughout the year the plants and animals living in the freshwater lake, Slapton Ley, vary according to the seasons. The whole stretch of this particular piece of coastline has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a great destination at any time of the year. Shop 20 yards, pub 40 yards, restaurant 2 miles.

    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.

    National Trust Holiday Cottage

    Greenway, the summer residence of the famous author Agatha Christie, is a magical place to explore, with its rich historical interior and the wildness and mystery of its garden. The long driveway to the house is stunning in itself, and when you see the house it is breathtaking. Agatha Christie set three of her novels here, all of which feature on the Agatha Christie Literary Trail: Five Little Pigs, Dead Man’s Folly and Ordeal by Innocence.
    This first and second floor apartment, decorated and furnished to a very good standard with many original pieces of furniture from when Agatha Christie stayed here, including the typewriter she used to write many of her books, offers guests the experience of staying in the holiday home of the much loved crime writer. Occupying the first and second floors of Greenway House, at the heart of the magical garden, this house boasts glorious views of the River Dart. Greenway Apartment has its own small garden, however guests also have the privilege of access to Greenway garden at all times, as well as access to the house, café and shop during normal opening times. Agatha Christie described Greenway as ‘the loveliest place in the world’. It was here that she had her holiday home, on the banks of the River Dart. With a long history dating back to the 1490s, the house still retains features added by all generations of occupying families. Now managed by the National Trust, the property offers visitors an extraordinary glimpse into the private life of the Queen of Crime and her family.

    In the novel ‘Dead Man’s Folly’ it appears as Nasse House, and the boat house was the scene of a murder. In the book ‘Ordeal by Innocence’, the house appears as Sunny Point House, and the Greenway Quay bell is used to summon the ferry to Drymouth (Dartmouth). Even the Baghdad Chest in the hallway of the house makes an appearance in ‘The Body in the Library’. Guests will benefit from free entry to Greenway during opening hours, and unlimited access to the gardens during their stay. Free entry is also available to Coleton Fishacre, Compton Castle and Bradley Manor upon showing the booking confirmation. Also guests will receive a discount voucher which can be redeemed at National Trust shops at Greenway, Coleton Fishacre and Dartmouth. The garden is large and extensive with some steep banks, eventually leading down to the River Dart. The accommodation is located above the visited areas of the house; some noise will be evident during normal house opening hours. There are many other places to visit close by including the Grand Hotel at Torquay, another favourite place of Agatha Christie, Paignton Zoo, steam railway, Dartmouth and many more National Trust properties all close by. Beach 21/2 miles. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 11/2 miles.

    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.

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)!

    "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.
