. "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, Mill Bank is the latest addition to a superb choice of cottages at Tuckenhay Mill. An extremely spacious two-person cottage having a living, dining, kitchen area on the higher level with two south-facing balconies overlooking the stream towards the Mill. The master bedroom and en-suite shower room are on the lower level, together with the riverside day room. Your own footpath leads from the garden via a footbridge to the facilities at the Mill.

Tuckenhay Mill is the centrepiece of a cluster of country homes and cottages with superb leisure facilities including two indoor and one outdoor pools.

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. There is golf nearby and a pub within 1 mile.

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.

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

Great care has been taken to retain the feel of the original buildings. 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 cottages: Mill Leat, Mill Stream, Mill Spring and now Mill Bank. 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."

“Very restful environment with great facilities.”

“This is our 2nd stay here and we love it so much. Such a beautiful place to visit and the Mill is just fantastic for exploring the local area or relaxing by the wonderful 3 pools and other sport activities”
— Louise, 25 October 2021
“Fabulous place, cute cottage, amazing facilities we will be back”
— Barry, 3 October 2021
“A unit ideal for a couple with much more space than hotel accommodation would provide. A nice kitchen, diner lounge downstairs with decent sized double bedroom with sufficient storage for a week two week stay and nice bathroom with over the bath shower. Immaculately clean on arrival . Plenty of onsite facilities . We had visited Tuckenhay 25 years earlier staying in a larger unit and were pleased to find the whole place was as fresh and presentable as then. Would recommend unreservedly to anyone seeking a quiet getaway with access to delightful surrounding south Hams ( except to nervous drivers because the lanes in most directions are exceptional narrow and require an ability to reverse quickly and accurately ). Hearing the running stream and the owls hooting at night was an extra treat.”

“Absolutely loved a 3 night mini break post winter lockdown, at Tuckenhay Mill it was just what we needed! Set in beautiful tranquil surroundings. Loved the pools and jacuzzis and the opportunity to play badminton and tennis. Not able to use steam room or saunas due to Covid restrictions. Everything was well organized and disciplined and clean regarding socially distanced use of the facilities. We cant wait to return again.”

“Absolutely lovely place and will be definitely be going back there.”
— Glen, 16 May 2021
“We had a lovely week despite the COVID restrictions in place. In fact that meant that we had the pool and Jacuzzi to ourselves for our hour day slots which was a bonus.”
