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 neighbour'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 usually Friday for weekly bookings. We can also offer short breaks (minimum 3 nights) outside of the main holiday seasons.

Such a beautiful place

By Vanessa on 28-Sep-2023

Mill Cottage is located in a very peaceful area, it provided a perfect setting for us to relax from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with its beautiful surroundings and all the amenities you need. This tranquil cottage sits on a tidal river which provides lots of wildlife and I was so pleased to have seen a Kingfisher for the first time ever. I definitely recommend anyone to stay here and experience such a beautiful place. Will definitely return in the future.

A Miller's Delight

By John Williams on 15-Sep-2023

Mill Cottage, the former home of a miller, is situated in a picturesque setting on the banks of the River Yeo in a very tranquil location offering peace and quiet and yet providing easy access to Bideford and beyond to the whole area between Bude and Ilfracombe. The accommodation was warm, very comfortable and fitted out to a high standard with an excellent range of appliances. Outside there are large gardens and access and parking is very easy. The owners could not have been more helpful when responding to our queries about the property. The only note of caution is that it quite clear from the photographs that the river which runs through the grounds is tidal and care needs to be taken with small children. Otherwise highly recommended.

Lovely Location

By Rachel on 31-Aug-2023

We had a wonderful weekend at this cottage. Iain was very helpful and informative, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. A very homely feel to the cottage with everything we needed for our stay. We would highly recommend Mill Cottage and we hope to return in the future.
