This gorgeous, much loved holiday home is back on the rental market!
New for Summer 2023.
Nestled in the valley of the River Erme estuary, Orcheton Mill is a truly unique, spacious and comfortable house with six acres of gardens and grounds for you to exclusively enjoy. It is the perfect base from which to explore the beaches and walks within the popular South Hams, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With 3 double bedrooms, large kitchen, dining room seating 8, characterful lounge as well as a separate annexe sleeping 2, there is room for everyone to spread out and enjoy all this lovely property has to offer.
Built in 1720, Orcheton Mill consists of a water mill and two miller’s cottages. The once operational water wheel and leat around the house now make for a truly unique feature and encloses an attractive courtyard, useful for outside entertaining.
Modbury, Kingsbridge, Totnes and Dartmouth are all within easy driving distance from the mill, along with many excellent pubs and restaurants. The private gardens, apple orchard and field make for great adventure and provide safe exercise for your dog. The mill is also a haven for nature lovers, with the opportunity to see and hear the resident owls, pheasant, badgers and otters.
Please note that the grounds do include streams, a millpond, and (enclosed) leat next to the house, so all children must be supervised.
Guests enter the house through the entrance lobby and hallway with adjoining WC, through into the living area. The large, yet cosy living room has exposed beams and woodburner and comfortably seats up to 8 people.
The huge kitchen has a dual aspect woodturner which is shared with the beautifully appointed dining room. Fitted with a Belfast sink, large fridge/freezer, free standing range, ample work surfaces and middle island, this is a great hub where foodies can really indulge their love of cooking.
Stairs lead up to a large landing with three double bedrooms. Bedroom one is enormous with views over the front garden It has the added benefit of an en suite shower room. Bedroom two houses 2 single bed, ideal for children or those who fancy a bed of their own. Bedroom three overlooks the rear courtyard and is home to a comfy king bed. On this floor is the main family bathroom with a shower over the bath.
Outside is a separate annexe with private access up some stone steps. Luxuriously fitted with a king size bed and a lovely large shower room, this is the perfect sopace for those who would like a little peace and solitude away from the main house.
Outside is just paradise for children and dogs with 6 acres to play, hide and explore. With orchards, a field and a wonderful tree house, you may never get them back inside.
Bifold doors lead from the dining room on to the large enclosed courtyard. This is such a pretty area to enjoy outside dining at it's finest. A large wooden table easily seats 8 and the pizza oven is just the icing on the cake!
