Mill Cottage is a peaceful riverside property located 4km from the coastal town of Bideford. This enchanting retreat boasts an abundance of wildlife activity in the secluded Yeo Valley, with no neighbor's nearby and stunning river views from all the main rooms; it provides an ideal place to relax after a long day exploring the beautiful Devon coastline.

The property has three bedrooms:
Bedroom 1: Superking bed which can be split into two single beds. Chest of Drawers and Wardrobe.
Bedroom 2: Double bed. Chest of Drawers and Wardrobe.
Bedroom 3: Two single beds. Tall Chest of Drawers.
Hand towels, bath towels and spare linen are provided but not Beach Towels.

The front terrace is a perfect location to enjoy the river. It includes seats, tables, parasol and a BBQ. We also have a campfire located on the riverbank which you are welcome to use. There is a bag of logs and BBQ fuel in the woodshed for the first light. The rear courtyard is a suntrap which offers additional privacy and storage for surfboards, bikes etc.

The property has a good broadband/WiFi connection throughout, plentiful power sockets and USB charging sockets in all bedrooms. Mill Cottage is an environmentally friendly property with Air Source heating and Solar Panels providing renewable energy. A welcome book with full details of the property and local information will be emailed to you before your arrival. Driveway parking is available for up to 5 cars.

The large garden borders the tidal river which can flow over the lawn to a depth of over a meter during the highest tides in Spring and Autumn. This can provide a wonderful environment for wild swimming and canoeing, however it can also provides risks and for this reason, we cannot accept liability for any injuries or losses that occur outside of the main cottage building.

Unfortunately we do not accept pets at Mill Cottage and due to the potential risks of the river, we would suggest that it is only suitable for supervised children 10 years old or above. There is no smoking inside the cottage.

Our changeover day is Friday for weekly bookings. We also offer 3 night weekend (Fri - Mon) and 4 night mid-week (Mon - Fri) breaks out of the high season (see pricing for details).

Tranquility and Beauty

By Fred Williams on 29-Apr-2022

Without doubt the best cottage we have ever stayed at. As soon as we crossed the bridge we knew we had made the right choice. It does not feel like a holiday let it felt like home. Cooking facilities excellent bed we used was comfortable. Plenty of hot water and the cottage was heated throughout. Numerous chairs for sitting around outside and beautiful views.

Excellent and a very comfortable stay

By Emmet Swinburn on 11-Apr-2022

This Easter the family stayed at Mill Cottage. Using google maps the cottage is easy to find, and as you approach the entrance to the property you go over a stone bridge that over looks the garden, river and cottage. The cottage was immaculately clean, with modern appliances, comfortable and contains everything you need. The garden with its own stretch of river is gorgeous and maintained to a high standard. Do read the owners manual regarding the rivers tidal characteristics, which is quite fascinating if you like that sort of thing ;) There is a footpath at the property entrance that takes you through some woods and across a field to the Tarka Trail. The beds are extremely comfortable and the area is very quiet as you are not near the main road. The location of the cottage is perfect for day trips and only 10 minutes away from ASDA, a shopping centre and takeaways, even though you feel you are deep into the countryside at the cottage. While I did not meet the owner, we had great communication via email from enquiry to leaving the premises at the end of our holiday. The owners manual of the property is detailed and accurate. The whole family really enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again. Highly recommend.
