There are plenty of scenic walks from the doorstep of this cottage, or get in the car and explore the many nearby attractions.

Slightly eccentric, this very unique, but most importantly friendly, home-from-home cluster of cottages (refs UKC1195 and UKC1196) are hidden away in South Devon. Guests are made to feel very welcome by the family who run this lovely gem, and the properties are surrounded by peace and quiet (for this reason it’s recommended you bring your car, there is no public transport nearby). Fingals Cottages are situated on a steep hill in a tranquil valley just a mile from the beautifully scenic River Dart, a wide meandering river that begins at Totnes and heads out to the mouth of estuary at Dartmouth. Alongside the cottages is a small, family owned boutique B&B, with its warm, welcoming reception and bar. The world of deadlines and endless rushing around in everyday life seem light years away. The lovingly tended, shared gardens have secluded, secret corners for guests to retire to quietly and read, sunbathe and relax. The gardens are full of scented flowers, wisterias climb the balconies, and jasmines and clematis are in abundance. There are a variety of native British birds including wagtails and blue tits playing in the garden, sparrow hawks and buzzards above, kingfishers by the stream and hooting owls at night but the greatest thrill is the regular swooping flypast of the large flock of white doves, whose home is in the old barn dovecote opposite. In the evenings, bats flit about the lawns. There is a small indoor swimming pool located in the conservatory, full of lush tropical plants, as well as a sauna, changing rooms and shower facilities. There is also a gym and games room with piano, snooker table and table tennis. Outside, there is a lawned tennis court, which you can use during the summer months, and a croquet lawn.
In this part of the South Hams there is a network of green lanes right on the doorstep. Venturing out on foot will take you to the three neighbouring pretty villages, of Dittisham, Cornworthy and Capton. Guests can walk along these lanes, through woods and across fields, without ever seeing a car. In fact, to walk to Dartmouth, 6 miles, there is only one main road to be crossed. There are four pubs within 3 miles of the cottages, all with excellent restaurants. Fingals Cottages is a superb place, with a range of properties to suit couples of all ages and families with children. Beach 8 miles. Shop and pub 1 mile and restaurant 5 miles.

    We had a lovely few days staying at Lower Mill last week. We were overwhelmed by the character and charm of Fingals. The boys had everything they wanted with indoor pool, tennis court, table tennis and snooker. Sheila and Richard were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be returning...
