“A beautiful retreat”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

An ideal base for travelling around South Devon. The grounds to the property are absolutely fabulous and an animal / wildlife lovers dream. Also a great location if you have dogs as most of the local pubs accept dogs, and are very welcoming.
The cottage itself is comfortable but a little dated, however it has everything you could need for a self catering holiday. We had a great week with plenty of walks and discovered lots of deserted, sandy coves. An ideal place for de-stressing.

“Marsh Mills ticks all the boxes.”

On arrival at Marsh Mills ,after finding the property very easily due to good directions,we were greeted warmly by John and Maggie.The cottage is very nice,spacious,clean and comfortable but just made a bit special by its location,set by the tidal river.It is lovely to sit and have a leisurely breakfast or evening meal on the patio.Although it is only a short lane away from a busy main road, it is a quiet and peaceful property.Turn left at the end of the lane and there is the roundabout either to Kingsbridge or Plymouth,or turn right and a few minutes walk will take you to the community shop and post office with good quality stock and competitive prices.Staying at Marsh Mills helped make our holiday very pleasant.We enjoyed the many animals and fish,the lovely gardens and our talks with John and Maggie.Such a convenient situation makes it easy to reach Dartmoor,Dartmouth,Start Point,Salcombe,Bantham,the South Devon Railway is a delight and if you know the National Trust property Castle Drogo go and experience the huge project they are undertaking over the next few years.We do not often return to holiday homes, but Marsh Mills - see you again one day !

We have just returned from a fabulous week at the B &B next to this cottage owned by Maggie and John.
We have been visiting this little piece of heaven for about 25 years and it does not change.
If you like busy modern noisy places this is not for you
If you love welcoming laid back relaxing countryside where life goes on at a your pace then you are on to a winner.
You really don't need to leave the beautiful gardens with the river and mill pond if you feel like a relaxing day but if you do fancy a trip out you are only a short distance from Bigbury beach and Burgh Island.Kingsbridge with its estuary,Salcombe with its lovely harbour and boat trips. and historical Dartmouth.
There are lots of lovely beaches in this area as well as woodland walks and the tidal road is only a few hundred yards from the property with its walks and wildlife including egrets and swans .
My son and his friend stayed at the cottage a few years ago whilst we were in the B & B and thoroughly enjoyed it.
This is a secret hideaway where you can really relax and re charge your batteries,and this is why its taken 25 years to spill the beans as we would really like to keep it for ourselves.
