Town Mills is a historic Grade II listed former mill and Manor House situated on the banks of the River Torridge on the outskirts of Great Torrington in North Devon. Built by Lord Rolle in 1823 and made famous as ‘Tarka’s Mill’ in Henry Williamson’s book ‘Tarka the Otter’, Town Mills started life as a grain mill and a saw mill, both powered by waterwheels. Now, almost 200 years later, Town Mills has been sympathetically converted into seven well-appointed holiday cottages all with their own personality. From a cosy holiday cottage that sleeps 3 people, to a larger 6-bedroom holiday cottage that sleeps 12, every cottage benefits from character and charm combined with modern convenience.

Located in the beautiful North Devon countryside, Town Mills is ideally situated for visiting the North Devon coast, Exmoor, travelling The Tarka Trail, or visiting the RHS Gardens at Rosemoor next door.
Merebrook is a very popular cottage, which used to form part of the saw mill when Town Mills was still a working mill. Set alongside the leat that powered the waterwheels, the original water wheel of the grain mill can be seen from the windows of the lounge, creating a lovely ambience.
Mere Brook has a wonderful, cosy atmosphere. As you go through the front door you enter a comfortable, bright sunroom where you can sit and relax, read, or have a glass of something whilst taking in the tranquillity of Town Mills. This leads into the lounge/diner with a staircase leading to the first floor, and doorway into the fitted kitchen. This kitchen is well-equipped and has views of the riverside garden, play area and the river itself. This two-storey property has a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both with an en-suite bathroom with over-the-bath shower, toilet and sink unit.
On-site, there is a indoor shared swimming pool which is kept warm between 31-32 degrees, so is suitable for even the smallest guests. The owners offer the opportunity to reserve the pool for your exclusive use, allowing you the chance for a session of family fun, or a quiet moment to relax. There is a games room with a free pool table and a classic table football, along with a dart board and fruit machine. Located by the riverside, but securely fenced, the children’s play area offers picnic bench seating with swings, slide and climbing frame, as well as an elevated playhouse, its the ideal spot to spend a lazy afternoon with a picnic whilst trying to spot an otter or some of the other many local wildlife visitors. For younger guests, there is a kids hideaway where they can escape to. On the opposite side of the Mill there is a garden where you can enjoy a few moments, maybe have a picnic or watch the peacocks as they wander around.
