    5 Cottages sleeping 4-8 (26)

    Groups - we accommodate up to 26 adults.

    Watermill Cottages is a cluster of pretty, historic cottages nestling in a coastal valley by the Gara Brook, once part of an 18th century watermill so naturally, each cottage has its own character & charm. You'll find thick stone walls, beams, wooden window seats, deep slate sills, patchwork quilts, fleecy throws and a log burner + electric heating in each cottage to keep things cosy.
    The cottages are no more than 150 metres’ distance of each other - great for groups of friends and family holidaying together.

    Enjoy walks from your cottage door on green lanes, through ancient woods, meadows and wetlands.... Relax and enjoy your own cottage garden or sit by the stream on shared lawns, a fire in the firepit... take in the beauty of a typical Devon steep-sided valley on a 20 acre small holding.

    Escape the excesses of the 21st century, breathe clean air, and really reconnect with each other and with nature - there are no TV or mobile signals here - the grounds are a child’s paradise with a whole valley of woods and meadows to explore. Den making, building dams, pooh sticks and paddling - you can guarantee it won’t be just the kids!

    You'll discover wildflower meadows and in spring, bluebells in the woodland paths along a waterfall studded stream. There is no through traffic, so the soundtrack to your holiday is of the babble of the brook and of birdsong. At night there's no light pollution - lie on a blanket and star gaze as you listen to the owls..

    And holiday sustainably - we generate electricity from a water turbine. 100% of the electricity used at Watermill Cottages is from renewable resources. Free electric car charging for guests from a PodPoint. Meat and eggs from the small holding are available to guests. Each cottage has Ecover cleaning products.. We manage the land carefully coppice, rewilding parts, renovating a coppice for wood burner logs, and an orchard with old Devon varieties of cider, eating and dessert apples. We apple press at October half term - join us! And see if you can spot any dormice, otters and waterfowl that live in the valley.

    The perfect location for ‘coast and country' holidays - the cottages are just a ten minute drive from over 3 miles of Slapton beach. Plenty of beautiful beaches on this curve of the coast overlooking Start Bay - Blue Flag award-winning Blackpool Sands is just 5.5 miles away, Beesands 6.7 and Hallsands 8 miles.

    The pretty coastal towns of Dartmouth (8.5 miles) and Salcombe (13.8 miles) are both within easy reach with excellent cafes, galleries, independent shops, pubs and restaurants - the perfect places to potter. If you love messing about in boats you will be spoilt for choice - choose from kayak and dinghy hire to sailing lessons and ferry cruises.

    Our closest villages are Slapton and Strete. Slapton boasts two dog-friendly pubs, and an award-winning community shop whilst the pretty village of Strete is home to the popular The Laughing Monk restaurant and The Kings Arms pub, dog-friendly, with a sea view garden, a lovely stroll from Watermill Cottages..
