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).

Such a beautiful place

By Lisa Wallis on 13-Nov-2021

This summer my partner and I had the pleasure of staying at Mill Cottage with my sister and her family. We easily found the cottage using google maps, and as we arrived in the afternoon sunshine, our first impression when we drove over the stone bridge, entered the driveway and saw the cottage and garden was one of excitement at the prospect of spending a week at such a beautiful place. The cottage was spacious, immaculately clean, comfortable and contained everything we needed. The garden with our own stretch of river was idyllic. The owner was very welcoming when they popped over to greet us, and gave us some good tips on day trips from the cottage. We explored the garden and grounds, and discovered the footpath just up from the bridge which links to the Tarka Trail (perfect for running, cycling and hiking). We walked to Bideford and back one afternoon from the cottage, which was a gentle easy walk. My nephew loved his forest bedroom, and our rooms were also very comfortable. We all slept very well as there was no noise as you are not near the main road. Be sure to go out at night to look at the stars, as there is little artificial light, the view is spectacular. We even had our own resident kingfisher! We saw him every day from the cottage either flying up and down the river or sitting on his favourite perch in the garden. The location of the cottage is perfect for day trips, and I have included a few pictures of the coast and some of the walks we did nearby. We had a great Monopoly game one afternoon, and we were also present for a particularly high tide which flooded the garden temporarily, which you can see in the photos. We enjoyed watching the occasional paddle boarder and canoeist make their way down the river. We found our holiday here peaceful and relaxing, a great escape from our busy lives, and a perfect place to explore beautiful Devon. We all really enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again, and will recommend to family and friends.
