Self Catering Holidays in the Heart of Devon.
The Old Mill is a thatched Devon longhouse set in eleven acres of pasture, orchard and vineyard in the heart of rural mid Devon.
The Old Mill Cottage, which adjoins the main house, is created from a former shippon and hayloft, recently restored to a very high standard to provide stylish, self-catering accommodation for four. It enjoys complete privacy, set in its own, enclosed, sunny, south-facing garden with terrace and garden furniture, perfect for alfresco breakfasts and long, lazy suppers.
The grade II listed cottage retains much of its original character with a wealth of exposed stone walls and beams – beware the low front door!
If you are looking for luxury and style in the heart of the countryside, then you will find them at the Old Mill Cottage, Down St Mary, Devon.
The Cottage is perfect for couples or families with children who want that away from it all break with easy access to the moors and to the sea (about 50 minutes drive) but only 30 minutes drive from the shops, restaurants of the lovely Cathedral City of Exeter. It is perfect both for summer holidays and for short breaks in the, usually mild, Devon autumn and winter. In spring the countryside is especially beautiful, when every hedgerow bursts with wild flowers.
Down St Mary is an historic, pretty village in the heart of rural mid Devon, yet lies only 7 miles from the old market town of Crediton. The area is perfect for walking, golfing, cycling, riding, fishing and bird watching. There are lots of local footpaths as well as easy access to Dartmoor and Exmoor, to the Tarka trail and the Two Moors Way. Bring your wellies, especially out of season. There is a nine hole golf course just outside the village and fishing, riding and trekking can be found nearby. Down St Mary is about 50 minutes drive from the elegant and sedate beaches of East Devon and the surfers’ paradise of Croyde.
Or you may simply want to relax in the garden reading, or listening to music in the garden room. We provide a small library of books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, and board games, but please bring your own favourites. We also supply a welcome pack with local or home made produce and a complimentary bottle of Down St Mary wine.
We welcome well-behaved dogs by arrangement (conditions apply). The Old Mill Cottage has light carpets, for this reason we ask that muddy or wet dogs be kept in the tiled hall and kitchen until they are clean and dry. Because we have dogs ourselves and know that they are dirt magnets, we provide a plentiful supply of dog towels! Please use them.
