Oil central heating and electricity (£35 per week, £20 per short break). Bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Initial fuel for wood burners included. Courtyard with sitting-out area and garden furniture. Bike store. On road parking. No smoking.. Beach 200 yards. The Old Mill is the ideal choice for a family seaside holiday or a relaxing escape at any time of year. This historic, Grade II listed house is thought to be the oldest in the village dating back to the 17th Century. Steeped in history it retains many of its original features, charm and character. Bucks Mills was the home to Prunella Scales during World War II. The Old Mill was the village guest house at this time and its landlady is thought to have been the inspiration for Sybil Fawlty. Just a stones throw from the secluded sand and shingle beach, it sits in the tiny cliff top hamlet of Bucks Mills, one of the most beautiful villages in North Devon, a secluded hidden gem with pretty white washed cottages speckled along a wooded valley at the end of a no through road. This delightful, spacious holiday home is one of the last adjacent to the steep clifftop pathway which leads you down to the glorious beach overlooking Lundy Island and the Atlantic Ocean. There are plenty of rock pools to keep young and old entertained or have a go at sea fishing. There is plenty for everyone with birdwatching, fishing, riding, golf, surfing and sailing close by. The coastal path passes by the cottage and leads you to the famous fishing village of Clovelly and the unspoilt beach at Peppercombe, or if you are feeling energetic, walk all the way to Westward Ho! A village store and post office is one mile away and nearby Bideford has restaurants and town amenities along with boat trips to Lundy Island, or hire a bike and explore the nearby Tarka Trail. RHS Rosemoor Gardens, Docton Mill and Hartland Quay are well worth a visit along with many pretty fishing villages to explore including nearby Instow and Appledore. For family fun the Big Sheep, The Ultimate Adventure and Milky Way Adventure parks are a must. Beach 200 yards. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.. There is a sea 200 yards from this property. There are numerous steps throughout this property, making it therefore unsuitable for the less mobile. Initial fuel for the woodburners included, thereafter available locally at cost. Up to three dogs only. Sofa bed is for alternative sleeping only. Fuel supplement of £35 per week and £20 per short break.More

Reviewed 14 August 2019

The house is filthy dirty and needs a thorough deep clean. The single beds need replacing as the springs are exposed. Overall the accommodation is not fit for purpose. One toilet (aside from the en suite one) is inadequate for 10 people. The one shower...More
