  • “The cottage was pretty much as described and the kitchen was very well equipped.”

    The "goodie box" was a lovely touch. One suggstion might be a starter pack of logs for the first night as the cottage was quite cold on the first evening (and a suggestion for where to get some more). ...

    The "goodie box" was a lovely touch. One suggstion might be a starter pack of logs for the first night as the cottage was quite cold on the first evening (and a suggestion for where to get some more). As stated in the details the entrance to the terrace is quite tight but ok, as is the parking. We have what we consider to be a medium car and we are not sure another car would fit. Th cottage is in a lovely peaceful setting, with a semi- enclosed garden which our dogs loved (just open at the top where the car was parked) and the terrace occupants were very friendly. Next door did have the builders in but we weren't bothered too much as we were out most of the days. There are many local walks and 2 pubs serving food in easy walking distance.

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.
