This great holiday base and accommodation, with all bedrooms ensuite, forms one part of the refurbished Kentisbury Mill, the friendly owner living in the other part of the Mill.  The border of Exmoor National Park is literally on the doorstep, with Lynton and Lynmouth just a 20 minute drive. The village of Combe Martin with its beach and enjoyable walks along the South West Coast Path is less than 4 miles. The hamlet of Kentisbury Ford is just down the road and a local post office and small stores is within a 10 minute walk. There is also a good selection of pubs and restaurants within a 10 minute drive, including Michael Caines' The Coach House at Kentisbury Grange. The National Trust’s Arlington Court is close by on the way to the North Devon market town of Barnstaple.

Visitors are very welcome and encouraged to share the owner's delightful 2 acres of landscaped gardens, sweeping lawns, mature trees, colourful borders, ponds and streams. There is a large south-facing terrace for you to sit out on and enjoy alfresco meals, possibly even a barbecue.  

The Mill has ample parking just outside and entering the front porch you can kick off your walking boots and go through to the living/dining room, which provides a sofa and two armchairs in front of the fireplace and a smart TV.  There are views across the garden and also a convenient electric coals effect fire for cooler seasons. If you plan to eat in, the dining space at the rear has a wooden table and chairs. The kitchen for you to prepare enjoyable meals or quick snacks is just off the main room and the kitchen leads round to a separate utility room.

Wake up to delightful views from the attractive bedrooms on the first floor.  ‘Swallow’ is the master bedroom and is spacious and well-furnished providing the flexibility of a Superking with a zip ‘n’ link option. The ensuite shower room is pristine and has a double sized shower. ‘Jay’ and ‘Magpie’ are the both comfortable single bedrooms benefiting from their own individual ensuite shower room facilities.

Lovely cosy cottage within beautiful grounds. Everything you could need has been thought about. The owner, who lives next door is very friendly & helpful but not in your face! We had a wonderful family holiday with 2 young children & will definitely be returning!

Mrs W,

Centrally positioned for North Devon, very close to Arlington Court. Nice big fairly quiet garden. Very friendly owner next door who ensures you enjoy your stay. Nice and sufficiently equipped cottage. Lovely to have all three bedrooms with their own en-suite. A good choice.

Mr I,

We really enjoyed our stay at Kentisbury Mill. The property was well equipped, clean and comfortable. There was a lovely big garden which we were free to explore and some simple walks from the property we enjoyed . It was in a great location for exploring the coast and nearby Exmoor.

Mrs H,

This property is ideal if your looking for something beautiful, peaceful and relaxing. There is hardly any traffic noise and the gardens are stunning. The cottage is very clean and well equipped, the bedding and towels are clean and soft. The owner Derek lives in the cottage next door, and is extremely friendly and helpful. There is free wifi, but mobile signal is a little hit and miss, but can be found in the garden. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Mrs E,

This is great property in quiet surroundings with outlook on to a nice garden. It was comfortable, very clean, and decorated pleasantly. The owner was very helpful and welcoming..

Mr A,
