  • . "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."

    "We had a brilliant weekend and used most of the facilities.My only complaint was that the shower on the top floor was cold so we had to use one of the other showers.I think there should be recycling facilities too but overall a Fantastic place to spend a weekend."

    "Lovely location.Property and venue could do with a little updating."
    Lee ‐ 8 Jul 2019
    "Fantastic week spent at Tuckenhay. Was our first during the summer months as we normally visit in November and it didn’t disappoint! Beautiful setting with a convenient location for exploring from. Looking forward to going again already as we were blessed with the weather.The owners were very pleasant to talk to as was Debbie who always makes you feel so at home and nothing is ever too much trouble."
    David ‐ 5 May 2019
    "Spacious and very comfortable cottage which would probably be perfect if it had a downstairs toilet.Something for everyone at Tuckenhay Mill."
    John ‐ 4 May 2019
    "These cottages have loads going for them. The location is wonderful, the pools, courts and grounds are great. Two pretty good pubs are a walk away. The cottages are spacious and well equipped if a little dated. The bedding quality is so-so and internet access is frankly woeful. Nonetheless we love it!"

    "A beautiful location with wonderful pools and comfortable and cosy accommodation."
    Godfrey ‐ 18 Nov 2018
    "Overall, the cottage was in reasonable shape, but there were some items which needed attention.1. The window in the sitting room does not close properly, so there is a vandal risk & a constant stream of cold air.2. The first floor toilet seat is broken & was set to appear OK!!!3. The cooker is faulty in that neither the burners nor the oven come up to temperature.4. The Snooker equipment (Cues & rests) need attention-new tips on cues & rubbers on rests.5. The jacuzzi in the larger Roman pool was turned off after 3 days, so we were not able to use this facility.6. We had a water leak into the snooker/table tennis room whilst there.7. The heating system is dated & very difficult to control, with the result that the building is either too clod or too hot. There is no thermostatic control as it is not a single system, rather, a collection of electric storage radiators.This cottage was almost £1000 for a week in November, so not really up to standard"

    "House was amazing, complex fabulous. Only negative thought would be very bad WiFi. Hasn’t stopped us from booking again next year tho."
