    5 Cottages sleeping 4-8 (26)

    5 lovely, comfy stone cottages in a stunning coastal valley in the heart South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Slapton Sands and Strete, near Dartmouth.
    Quack, Rose and Barleycorn Cottages sleep up to 4, Mill Cottage sleeps up to 6, Crownwheel Cottage sleeps 8. Groups - we accommodate up to 26 adults.

    Watermill Cottages - a cluster of historic cottages nestling by the Gara Brook. Once the barns, stables, mill building & workers’ cottages of an 18th century watermill.
    Each cottage has its own individual character & charm. You'll find thick stone walls, beams, patchwork quilts, fleecy throws and, in each cottage, a log burner to keep things cosy. The cottages are no more than 150 metres’ distance of each other - great for groups of friends and family holidaying together.

    Relax and enjoy the green lanes strolls, ancient woods, meadows, orchard, shared lawns and stream in a typical Devon steep-sided valley on a 20 acre small holding.
    Escape the excesses of the 21st century and really reconnect with each other and with nature - there are no TV or mobile signals here - the grounds are a child’s paradise with a whole valley of woods and meadows to explore. Den making, building dams, pooh sticks and paddling - you can guarantee it won’t be just the kids! You will discover wildflower meadows and in spring, bluebells in the woods. Stroll down woodland paths alongside the waterfall studded stream. There is minimal traffic, so the soundtrack to your holiday is of the babble of the brook and of birdsong. At night there is no light pollution - lie on a blanket and star gaze.

    The owners are justly proud of their eco credentials. Electricity is generated from a water turbine in the mill leat, supplying Barleycorn Cottage, the Old Mill and the office. 100% of the electricity used at Watermill Cottages is from renewable resources. Meat and eggs from the small holding are available to guests. Ecover cleaning products are supplied in each cottage. Careful land management has seen the renovation of the old coppice, the cultivation of the orchard with its old Devon varieties of apple. Dormice, otters and waterfowl inhabit the water meadows.

    This is the perfect location for ‘coast and country' holidays - the cottages are just 3 miles from the long stretch of Slapton beach. Plenty of beautiful beaches on this curve of the coast overlooking Start Bay - Blue Flag award-winning Blackpool Sands is just 5.5 miles away, Beesands 6.7 and Hallsands 8 miles. The attractive estuary towns of Dartmouth (8.5 miles) and Salcombe (13.8 miles) are both within easy reach and with their excellent range of cafes, galleries, independent shops, pubs and restaurants are the perfect places to potter. If you love message about in boats you will be spoilt for choice - choose from kayak and dinghy hire to sailing lessons and ferry cruises.

    The closest villages are Slapton and Strete. Slapton boasts two dog-friendly pubs, whilst the pretty village of Strete is home to the popular The Laughing Monk restaurant and The Kings Arms pub, dog-friendly, with a sea view garden, a lovely stroll from Watermill Cottages..
