Higher North Mill, Hansel, DARTMOUTH, South Devon, TQ6 0LN

We really do welcome pets in our five comfy old stone cottages around an 18th century former Watermill. Perfect for a getaway retreat. Ideal for relaxing and revitalising away from life's stresses and strains.

Twenty peaceful riverside acres of lawns, meadows, woods, wetlands and gardens in a secluded, traffic-free coastal valley away from the stresses of modern life. A haven of bird- and wildlife, trout to fish for, a brook to paddle in, and off-lead walks from your cottage door on green lanes and further afield. Our valley is a peaceful haven of flowers, woodland, wetlands and wildlife with walks from your cottage door, whilst nearby are various holiday attractions including beaches, art and craft galleries, pubs and restaurants, lake and sea fishing, riding, at the local stables or on the Moor, Three South Hams golf courses nearby, and plenty of National Trust Properties. The SW Coast Path offers stunning walks and glorious views of the South Devon coastline.

We have five individual stone built self-catering cottages with wood burners converted from former watermill buildings, cottages and barns. Each one has it’s own private enclosed garden or patio. There are also shared lawns, woodlands, fields and shallow stream to play in or exercise your dog in.

Watermill Cottages are in South Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just a mile up stream from the National Nature Reserve at Slapton Ley - our river feeds it - and Slapton Sands, Start Bay and the stunning South Hams coast & Coastal Path. Fifteen beaches within 30 minutes' drive, most dog-friendly. 6 miles from Dartmouth, 8 miles from Kingsbridge, 11 miles from Totnes and 12miles from Salcombe.

Watermill Cottages is a superb place to bring dogs & kids - plenty of walks and practically no traffic. There's a whole valley to explore, woods to play in and the river to dam and race boats on. The River Gara rarely runs above knee height so it's safe to paddle and they can feed the ducks. Birdwatchers enjoy our wide variety of wood and wetland birds, you can fish for the small brown trout in the river, and moon- and star-gazers love our lack of light pollution. Artists and writers have always found inspiration here.
