  • “Lovely location - so peaceful and quiet.”

    Lovely listening to the river across the lane. Cottage clean, comfortable and cosy. Loved the fire pit. Short stroll to the Hunters Inn. Make sure you take basic groceries with you.

    Lovely listening to the river across the lane. Cottage clean, comfortable and cosy. Loved the fire pit. Short stroll to the Hunters Inn. Make sure you take basic groceries with you. A bread knife would be useful. Also higher back armchairs would be extra comfortable to sit by the fire (to rest your head in case you nod off!).

The property

In a peaceful spot at the foot of the Heddon Valley, in Martinhoe situated between Combe Martin and Lynton is this lovely cottage, Tucking Mill Lodge.

Located in a secluded spot within Exmoor National Park and a stone's throw away from the Devon coast, Tucking Cottage is the perfect home-from-home for a couple looking for their romantic escape.

After parking in the handy off-road space, venture up the steps and into this inviting abode.

Be welcomed by a stylish open-plan living space that retains original features, including an inglenook fireplace and beams, and cosy up to the toasty woodburning stove with your loved one as you relax on the leather sofa or curl up in an armchair with a good book.

The well-equipped kitchen is nearby and is fitted with sleek cabinets and ample appliances, rustle up a romantic dinner for two, to be enjoyed at the breakfast bar.

In the evening get ready for bed in the spacious walk-in shower, before heading to bed in a welcoming king-size room.

Enjoy the peacefulness of your secluded location and take in the beautiful views of the valley from the comfort of an enclosed rear garden.

There is already so much to do without having to stray far from the cottage, stroll along Heddon River to Heddon's Mouth Beach and bask in the sun, before venturing to the close-by Hunter's Inn for a delicious lunch as you spot the resident peacocks!

Spend the day in Combe Martin and find the rest of your amenities, before getting up close to the animals in the local Wildlife & Dinosaur Park or sunbathe on the town's handful of beaches; if you're an excursion-lover, be sure to take advantage of the town's extensive walking trails, including West Country Walks's hiking area.

Head to the picturesque Lynton where you can take a ride on the water-operated cliff railway to the charming harbour at Lynmouth, where the views en-route are truly breathtaking.

Also you may wish to walk to the spectacular setting of the Valley of Rocks, which is about a mile walk from Lynton.

Make the most of your location in Exmoor National Park and balance on the ancient Cross Tarr Steps, visit the quaint Working Watermill, and climb up to the highest point of Somerset, Dunkery Beacon.

Discover activities along Devon’s coast in Ilfracombe, where you can enjoy a game of putting at the beachside golf course, trek to the observation deck of Capstone Hill, and view the aquatic wildlife in the Ilfracombe Aquarium.

Head further inland to Barnstaple where riverside activities await you or walk the South West Coastal Path to discover more landmarks and picturesque settlements on Devon’s shores.

A blissful couples getaway is waiting to be experienced at Tucking Cottage.

About the location


Ilfracombe 18 miles; Minehead 18 miles.

Lynton and its twin Lynmouth are nestled within Exmoor National Park on the North Devon coast. Lynton and Lynmouth enjoy one of the prettiest and most unspoilt coastal locations in England, offering breathtaking scenery and some of the best opportunities to admire the sheer rugged beauty of Exmoor’s coast and countryside. Great heritage, cosy fireside pubs, tasty local food and 'green’ credentials make North Devon an inspiring place to stay. There is a wealth of wildlife including magnificent red deer, the rare Exmoor pony, wild birds and rare butterflies. There are plenty of outdoor pursuits including horse riding, golf, walking, surfing and fly fishing on the beautiful Lyn river. Exmoor National Park is home to some of the darkest skies in the country so it's a great place to gaze at the stars. Lynton has a fabulous range of shops, pubs and cafes where you can wander between the picturesque cottages and meet the friendly locals. There are a number of attractions for the family including Exmoor Zoo, Lynmouth’s water-powered cliff railway, and the Owl and Hawk Centre. Experience one of England’s last remaining tranquil areas - there is something for everyone during a stay at Lynton and Lynmouth.
