    Ref: W44291

    Berry Park is a splendid Victorian country house with spectacular sea and countryside views. Nestled amidst six acres of attractive gardens and fields in the beautiful Devon countryside, next to the Cornish border in the unspoiled hamlet of Welcombe. Close to the beach and coastal path, Berry Park is perfect for families, couples and groups. Welcombe beach is great for surfing, rock pooling, paddling and beachcombing, and also has pebbles at high tide and sand at low. The South West Coastal Path is just a 10-minute walk away and the coastline in both directions offers some of the most breathtaking scenery in the West Country with many long sandy beaches and hidden coves to explore.

    The main house has been skilfully converted into apartments of various sizes sleeping 2 to 8 people (refs: W44290, W44291, W44292, W44293, W44294, W44295) and adjoining it are two 16th-century cottages (refs: W44288 & W44289), sleeping 2 to 9 people.

    The spectacular scenery around Welcombe makes it the perfect venue for those who enjoy coast and country walks. Berry Park borders the Marsland Valley which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and an officially designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is home to rare wildlife including red deer, otters, owls and buzzards. Numerous wild flowers abound, especially in the springtime when bluebells carpet the woods and it becomes hard to believe that orchids are rare.

    Why not take a break from the cooking with an evening in the character thatched village pub? Just a short walk from Berry Park they serve real ales and excellent food. The menu features dishes using high quality, locally produced ingredients. The pub is perfect for families, and dogs are welcome too!

    With 6 acres to explore, a children’s play area, indoor games room and outdoor heated swimming pool, there really is something for everyone.

    Picturesque Clovelly, with its cobbled street leading down to a tiny harbour, is just a short drive away. Historic Bideford, a prosperous port during the heyday of trade with America has all the town amenities, restaurants, a weekly market, and boat trips to Lundy Island. Bude, 12 miles, has a good selection of shops and restaurants, many specialising in locally caught sea food, along with a golf course, indoor Splash pool, surf schools and bowling. Coastal walking, cycling, golf, riding, fishing, surfing and sailing are all available in this stunning area.

For family fun, the Big Sheep and Milky Way Adventure parks are a must. Beach ¾ mile. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Ref: FCV

    "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.

    Set amongst the treetops, this apartment forms part of the oldest, original Mill buildings. Approached across the Mill Leat, it forms the ideal retreat for couples. Spacious attractive living room with small balcony (lovely countryside and valley views). Open-plan kitchen and dining area. Attractive double bedroom with 5ft bed. Bathroom and toilet.
