Stylish, welcoming and nestled on the outskirts of the prime period beachfront village of Shaldon, this wonderfully refurbished cottage is perfect for large and small families or a group of friends alike.
The beautifully appointed cottage offers you a country paradise you will not want to leave. Old Mill House boasts a fabulous space for all the family to enjoy, especially as the enclosed garden comes complete with everything you need to enjoy a spot of dining al fresco in style. Spark up the barbecue, sit back and relax in the beautifully manicured garden, which is ideal for children and pets.
Old Mill House is fully equipped with everything you and your party could wish for from a perfect country cottage escape. From sumptuous beds complete with bedding used by iconic Claridge's and several similar luxury retreats, fluffy towels and bathrobes and calming and tranquil interiors inspired by the owners' travels, to all the mod-cons you would expect from such a house, including that all-important Nespresso machine.
Relaxing, unwinding and truly enjoying this beautiful location is so easy to do. With a fabulous pub located only a short walk from the cottage, taking the dog for a walk is a real pleasure. Or why not pop into Shaldon itself (which is a short car drive); water enthusiasts, beach lovers and fine diners will all find their happy place in this fabulous village. Wherever your adventures take you, returning to this stunning cottage is the icing on the cake. Light the wood-burner, cuddle up in the super-snug sitting-room and start dreaming of what tomorrow will bring.
Old Mill House has gone the extra mile to ensure all members of the party have everything they need to enjoy a truly special break. Children are catered for with children's dinnerware and a selection of toys and for those wanting to keep up with some exercise a small gym kit is provided (yoga matt, kettlebell, bands and dumbbells). Organic and natural bathroom amenities locally made in Devon by Aromatika are available. It makes you wonder why you would want to venture further afield with everything you could need and more being at your fingertips.
However, being nestled in the heart of south Devon, there's rich pickings when it comes to places to eat, visit and explore. Shaldon is the nearest village and only a matter of minutes away by car. The village is a lovely place to spend a day or three with a fabulous range of restaurants, local food shops, traditional Devon pubs, two unspoilt beaches and even a zoo. In August, residents gather on the beach for the annual water carnival. A 200 year old tradition, it is (local word has it) the oldest running regatta in the world.
Of course, you have many beautiful villages and towns nearby - Dartmouth, Totnes, Brixham, Salcombe and Kingsbridge to name just a few of the fabulous hot spots which surround you, making for perfect days out for all.
Water lovers are spoilt for choice. The River Teign, which runs neatly between Shaldon and Teignmouth, is bustling with activity. From canoeing, paddle boarding, swimming, sailing and for those who prefer a more relaxed time, fishing from sandy Shaldon beach is a must; so don't forget your rods.
Not forgetting your magical location itself. Perhaps a ramble to your nearby pub complemented by a local beer, served with a warm Devon welcome sounds just the ticket, or maybe relaxing in the sun with a good book sounds like the perfect plan. In and around the glorious surroundings of Old Mill House everything is possible.
This beautiful house for seven lucky people is the perfect country retreat for those seeking relaxation and splendour, all set in the heart of so much activity.
Old Mill House is superb for couples or families alike. A truly magical time awaits; one which you will wish to repeat year after year.
