"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."

IN SYMPATHY WITH THE ENVIRONMENT
Tuckenhay Mill has led the way with most of the pools being heated by ground source heat pumps. Awards have been given for energy saving as well as pool design and conversion of buildings. 2008 saw the extension of the 20 acres of stunning natural landscape opening up nearly a mile of footpaths through dells, meadows and woodlands along with a natural waterfall. This is the place to enjoy a personal ‘Spring or Autumn Watch’ with swallows in the log store, buzzards on the adjacent hillside, owls in the woods and ducks and swans down on Bow Creek. Strolls can be taken with the dog and picnics enjoyed on a bench by the river. Children can stroke the goats and even collect eggs for breakfast from the hens (when laying)!

    Absolutely love Tuckenhay. However the cottage was tired and the outside furniture was broken . My daughter sat on a chair that collapsed. Luckily she is young but If a little older it would have caused a serious injury. We paid £300 more than the previous year too . The cottage we had for the week needs a refresh . We were a little disappointed this time. We would love to go again but would not have the same cottage and would like some refund or discount on future visits for the poor accommodation and outside furniture collapsing when sitting on it . Debbie was absolutely lovely and as of our last visit was part of the reason we would return! However we did not report the problems to her as we just wanted our family to have a stress free vacation. Tuckenhay is a wonderful location but the accommodation did not reflect this .

    On site facilities were very good, gymnasium etc. but there were no amenities in the near local, (shops of any kind) and no information as to where the nearest was. We could not purchase a newspaper or a bottle of milk without getting in to the car and heading to Totnes. Outside stone staircase was a bit daunting,(between carpark and accommodation), but overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, as Tuckenhay Mill proved to be a good base to explore the area.

    We stayed in Castle Cottage 1. It was a quaint and cosy cottage - if you are tall then you’d struggle at Castle 1 though as the whole place has low ceilings and the bathroom was also very small. The cottage had all we needed in it and the beds and linen were comfortable. The property particulars show that Castle 1 does not have a dishwasher but it does if only a half size one. The fridge was an under the counter one so didn’t hold much for a family for a week (See comment below about the distance for getting supplies). The noise from adjacent cottages was not inconsiderable which was t a problem most of the time but might be for some people. The cottage was clean and tidy when we arrived and the nice touches of some milk in the fridge and a vase of freshly cut flowers were appreciated! There’s no denying that the facilities at Tuckenhay Mill are superb. The best at any rental cottage we’ve stayed in, and we’ve stayed in many. The pools, tennis court, games room and walks around the property were absolutely fantastic. Everything was well tended to, the grounds were beautifully full of flowers and shrubs and it’s clear this is a well looked after location. However, although I knew it was out off the beaten track and was one of the reasons I booked it, it really really is. If you have young children, then the 20 min drive just into Totnes was a bit hairy on the single track roads, and a bit dull. Plus Totnes traffic! Awful alot of the time. It was over 30 minutes to Dartmouth and Torquay. So if you need supplies then it’s a trek out. The most frustrating part of the week (acknowledging we are likely to be in the minority) was that there is virtually no internet connection or WiFi at all. Even though it says limited connection in the small print it’s really not even that. The lack of phone signal wasn’t a big deal but the internet really is a big thing for us. Mostly, as we are real out of town-ers, we do like to plan our days out having small kids it pays to research the places we’d like to visit the next day. Usually in the evening when the kids have gone to bed. I think we probably didn’t make the most of the time or places in the near area as a result. All the above taken into account, we had a lovely, restful week at Tuckenhay and although we’d not stay again we’d definitely return to South Devon again to explore more of the area. Other reviewers comment that it’s a pricy place to stay. In my opinion for the facilities offered, TM offers good value for money. As long as you aren’t internet dependent!

If you have young children, then the 20 min drive just into Totnes was a bit hairy on the single track roads, and a bit dull. Plus Totnes traffic! Awful alot of the time. It was over 30 minutes to Dartmouth and Torquay. So if you need supplies then it’s a trek out. The most frustrating part of the week (acknowledging we are likely to be in the minority) was that there is virtually no internet connection or WiFi at all. Even though it says limited connection in the small print it’s really not even that. The lack of phone signal wasn’t a big deal but the internet really is a big thing for us. Mostly, as we are real out of town-ers, we do like to plan our days out having small kids it pays to research the places we’d like to visit the next day. Usually in the evening when the kids have gone to bed. I think we probably didn’t make the most of the time or places in the near area as a result. All the above taken into account, we had a lovely, restful week at Tuckenhay and although we’d not stay again we’d definitely return to South Devon again to explore more of the area. Other reviewers comment that it’s a pricy place to stay. In my opinion for the facilities offered, TM offers good value for money. As long as you aren’t internet dependent!
