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....' <strong> </strong>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. <strong> </strong> <strong>South Devon awaits you </strong> 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. <strong> </strong> <strong>A superb choice of cottages</strong> 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.' This extensive and magnificent house with its own private patio leading from the spacious kitchen/breakfast room is set in the Mill’s landscaped grounds and enjoys splendid views up the valley over a meadow bounded by a stream. The building was once the ‘fulling and tucking mill’ to the original paper mill, but it has now been tastefully converted to form a spectacular house on two levels offering generous accommodation. There are inner and outer halls, and a palatial 32-ft living room with arched stone fireplace, alcoves and exposed timbers. The fine dining room features a panelled wall (from the original ‘dye room’) and there is a separate sitting room also with TV. The enormous kitchen/breakfast room is fitted in farmhouse-style, with modern appliances – including electric range (for cooking), dishwasher, washing machine/tumble dryer and fridge/freezer. There is a separate utility room and walk-in larder. Cloakroom/toilet. Shower room with power shower. French doors lead from the kitchen to the patio and grounds. First floor: Master double bedroom leading on to balcony with superb valley views. Separate dressing room with additional 2ft 6in single bed (for +1), sauna and bathroom with shower cubicle and toilet. Four further bedrooms; one double with 5ft bed and three twin. Main bathroom and toilet. - Open fire – init...
