Small Tarka Line railway passes this detached cottage, in the beautiful Taw Valley, 2 miles of fishing is available, and Barnstaple easily accessible.

The Old Mill House is the most delightful family house. In a beautiful setting in the Taw Valley, off a country lane in a wooded valley, and with a stunning river nearby. You will be captivated from the moment you arrive, the warm and welcoming living room, has tiled floor, and the comfortable sofas are just waiting for you to put your feet up of an evening. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, both with exposed stone feature wall, and the double has a luxurious 5ft bed and en-suite shower room.
The quirky layout means that the first floor has an open plan kitchen/dining room with additional seating area and wooden floor. The kitchen is well-equipped with two windows letting light flood in, and you’ll need the large farmhouse table to unpack the excellent welcome pack. The terrace with views across to the Tarka Line, is excellent for breakfast, while summer afternoons can be spent enjoying the sun in the beautiful garden. The nearby river offers trout and salmon fishing by arrangement, or you can just stroll along its banks.

    Stayed at Old Mill House for a week end of October, whilst we were house hunting in the area. Very clean and spacious cottage. Welcome pack of cereal, bread, butter, cheese, eggs, milk and a bottle of wine awaited us, which was very kind. Friends and family who visited us during our stay were very impressed as well. Ivan who looks after the cottage and its guests was extremely kind and helpful, and we would like to say a big thank you to him. We would certainly recommend Old Mill House to everyone.

    Beautiful cottage,in a lovely area, lots to do in the area ,only drawback for dog owner's garden not secure, so someone had to be with dog if she was outside , not ideal.

    Had a lovely stay at the Old Mill House. The location is beautiful and the huge garden is stunning! The surprise third bathroom / shower room upstairs was a plus, meaning everyone in our party got their own bathroom! The welcome pack was really thoughtful. Everything was clean and tidy, but still homely on our arrival. There was plenty of parking, and the fishermen parking the other side of the drive never really bothered us. It took some getting used to having the kitchen upstairs and two of the bedrooms downstairs, but we got the hang of it eventually! The two sitting rooms each with a big tv and the one downstairs having Sky and a blu-ray player were also great bonuses, although we only had one day of rain! Rail enthusiasts will enjoy the proximity of the railway line, which also never really bothered us, and having a little stream in the garden was brilliant! Overall we had a really nice, relaxing stay and would definitely go back.
