Devon

Devon''s status as ''The English Riviera'' is well earned and is testimony to the popularity of this holiday destination, which attracts thousands of visitors every year who come to enjoy its special charms.

The county is blessed with two coastlines which are dotted with picturesque fishing ports and mile after mile of clean sandy beaches. The interior consists of a striking contrast of dramatic moorland that includes the Dartmoor National Park and a patchwork of green leafy lanes that criss-cross the region.

Dartmoor actually has two national parks as well as five areas of outstanding natural beauty, a UNESCO World Heritage site, Geopark and Biosphere Reserve. It’s also famous as the location for Conan Doyle’s ‘Hound of the Baskervilles’. It has 368 square miles of windswept, dramatic and uncrowded moors to enjoy!

The English Riviera; Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, are a magnet for those looking for a seaside holiday with lots of attractions and activities for all ages. It also has a rich maritime history, plenty of sporting events and water sports activities.

South Devon is characterised by gentle rolling hills and a lovely coastline, offering easy walks, country pubs and great restaurants, while the northern coast has superb surfing beaches. Exmoor in north Devon is perfect for moorland walks, mountain biking and has wonderful natural beauty.

The many facets of Devon provide visitors with a wide choice of holiday options and lots of top quality visitor attractions and days out, such as the Dartmouth Steam Railway and The National Marine Aquarium; too many to mention here.

Of note is Woolacombe Beach, one of the jewels in Devon’s crown with three miles of golden sand of Blue Flag status and the Tarka Trail; its 30 miles forms a figure-of-eight and follows the path the brave otter takes in Henry Williamson’s beloved novel.

If you fancy walking on the wild side why not take a trip to one of Devon’s many animal attractions? The zoo at Paignton offers an array of exotic creatures and makes for a wonderful day out, while the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm is also very popular with families.

    "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.

    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.

    This delightful, partly thatched 16th century barn conversion nestles in the heart of the beautiful village of Combeinteignhead. It has been lovingly restored and furnished to a very good standard and retains many original features, including timber beams and has a lovely log burner nestled into a stone chimney, an outdoor pizza oven, a very quaint patio and walled outdoor area, which is great for children and pets. There are fields all around the property, and the River Teign is a 5-minute walk away over the fields. There is a free tennis court 50 yards away (which has a farmers market next door every weekend), a wonderful riverside pub, restaurant and bar 5 minutes’ walk away, and a 17th century local pub, just 500 yards away, which serves traditional pub food and specialises in award-winning real ales. The pub also has live music evenings, ranging from jazz to rock nights, quiz nights and themed food evenings. The owners also have a smallholding 100 yards away, which guests can visit unaccompanied and contains miniature ponies, chickens and pigs. The river offers a variety of watersports (sailing, water skiing, canoeing etc.) and there is lots of great fishing to be had. It is also renowned with bird watchers and nature lovers. At the mouth of the river approximately 2 miles away, lies the picturesque seaside village of Shaldon with lovely sandy beaches. The larger towns of Teignmouth and Torquay are only a few miles further, which have excellent harbors, restaurants, shops, cinemas, a zoo and the famous Ness Beach. The market town of Newton Abbot is 2 miles away, and has a market on a Saturday and a local farmer’s market on a Tuesday. Dartmoor is within easy driving distance (20 minutes by car), which offers breathtaking landscapes of heather clad tors, wild ponies and sheep. Slightly further afield (35 minutes by car) is the jewel in south Devon’s crown, Dartmouth, the home of Agatha Christie. Visitors are able to catch a steam train in Paignton to visit the NT property and combine this with a ferry up the River Dart. The possibilities are endless, and The Swallows is ideally placed to explore this beautiful part of the country! Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    This superb large stone house has been built in a most peaceful rural setting, away from all roads, in one-third of an acre of garden and about 7 miles inland from the east Devon coast. The two nearest resorts are Lyme Regis and Charmouth, both with sandy beaches and holiday entertainments. Chard and Axminster lie about 5 miles distant with shops and railway station
    Famous for its fine carpets, Axminster stills produces them today, with the original factory being found near the church. There are good examples of Georgian houses to be seen here, and for those interested in architecture, the National Trust property of Shute Barton close by survives as one of the most important non-fortified manor houses of the Middle Ages. A mixture of Gothic windows, battlemented turrets and Tudor gatehouse mingle together, reflecting the fact that it parts of it were built during two different centuries. Another interesting property to visit is the Old Bakery, together with the manor mill and forge at Branscome, set in one of Devon’s prettiest cob-and-thatch villages. Operational until 1987, it was the oldest traditional working bakery in Devon, and now serves as a tearoom, with the bakery equipment on display to the public. The lace-making and pottery town of Honiton lies within easy reach and has a selection of interesting shops and an annual fair held in July, whilst a little further afield is Yeovil, well known for its glove-making industry spanning 350 years. Riding and golf in the area.
    Lyme Regis is easily reached and the colourwashed cottages and elegant Regency and Victorian villas which line the seafront make this very photogenic town. Attractions for all the family include a museum of local history and geology, Dinosaurland and a marine aquarium. Seaton is within easy driving distance, and boasts a steep pebbly beach as well as an open-top tramway. Garage/shop 4 miles.
