  • “The cottage was a bit bigger than I expected from the photos, there was plenty of room for all the family.”

    Also it was well equipped with an extra large fridge. The welcome parcel was a bonus. ...

    Also it was well equipped with an extra large fridge. The welcome parcel was a bonus. We suggest the owner gets the bathroom extractor fan fixed ASAP - not a problem for us during a hot dry week but if we'd had a wet week it could really have been an issue - I would have expected the cleaners to have reported this problem! I would also suggest the owners get side gates so that the back garden is enclosed for a dog, we had to keep the door shut, it is probably the only thing putting us off coming back to this cottage and two low garden gates are not expensive.

The property

Tucked away in the idyllic village of Tuckenhay, South Devon, is this delightful, former paper mill cottage set in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Positioned at the end of a narrow lane that sits near the picturesque Bow Creek, Jasmine Cottage, is welcoming and full of character.

A lovely choice for family or small groups of friends, with three first floor bedrooms, one king-size, one double and one twin, and a family bathroom with bath or shower over.

The cosy sitting room with two leather sofas, chaise longue and a flat screen TV, is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a busy day sightseeing.

Boasting an attractive brick fireplace housing a cosy woodburning stove.

The open plan dining area is a social space with dining for up to six people, ideal for family meals or to enjoy morning coffee.

The kitchen has a range of handmade bespoke timber units with pretty rainbow tiles.

Leading off from the dining area, a useful utility room with dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, plus separate cloakroom and WC.

Outside to the rear, there is a flat terrace plus a steep, raised patio area (may not be suitable for young children) with a table and chairs, so you can sit out and enjoy the afternoon sun with a refreshing glass of wine.

Off-road parking is available for two medium sized cars, with a terraced garden where families can unwind.

You can walk to the River Dart from the cottage, with two riverside pubs within walking distance and wonderful river and country walks on your doorstep.

Beaches at Slapton and Blackpool Sands are a short drive away and Woodlands Park provides fun for all the family whatever the weather.

The nearby historic towns of Dartmouth and Totnes offer castles to visit, boat trips, shops and award-winning restaurants.

A picturesque place to visit as a family and bring your dogs along.

Jasmine Cottage is the ideal retreat for families or small groups of friends looking for a relaxing location close to the coast.
