Mill Cottage has been lovingly restored throughout to offer very stylish holiday accommodation for four people. Externally the property has a beautiful new thatched roof and a pretty furnished courtyard garden, perfect for relaxing with a coffee or a glass of wine. Step inside and the style continues…  the open plan sitting/dining room is delightful, warm and welcoming with a couple of sofas and a table and chairs. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need to cook up your favourite meals. Upstairs the two boutique style bedrooms are fabulous with exposed roof trusses. This really is an individual holiday home - if you’re looking for the quintessential picture postcard cottage, this is it!

Take a stroll around Cockington village and you feel as though you’re stepping back in time… sitting in a quiet wooded valley, this village is home to pretty thatched cottages and a ‘Lutyens’ thatched pub - perfect for a cream tea! Many of the historic buildings we mentioned in the Doomsday Book. There are numerous trails to follow through the 420 acre parkland with organic and rose gardens and on down to the seafront.

Nearby Torquay was a favourite hot spot of the Victorian era with grand regency crescents lined with townhouses. Today, Torquay has a vibrant waterfront with its marina and harbour… stroll along the palm-lined promenade and visit the seafront gardens.

The model village at Babbacombe is a great day out for all the family and Paignton Zoo is well regarded for its wildlife conservation efforts with an impressive collection including a Komodo Dragon! Further afield, head inland and explore the Dartmoor National Park with its tors and myriad of walking trails. So whether you’re looking for a relaxing break or a family holiday with children to entertain, there’s something for everyone!
