Mill Grange is a beautifully presented detached converted watermill, fully refurbished and tastefully furnished to provide a high standard of accommodation throughout. A former working watermill, the property is set at the head of Old Mill Creek and adjacent to woodland belonging to descendants of Sir Walter Raleigh. The cottage combines many traditional features - such as original oak crossbeams and exposed stone walls - with contemporary and stylish modern day comforts. An ideal holiday retreat for couples or families looking for high quality accommodation within easy reach of Dartmouth and the stunning Start Bay coastline.
LOCATION Old Mill Creek is an idyllic tidal inlet just off the main River Dart estuary approximately a mile or so from the historic naval town of Dartmouth. Small boats can be launched at high tide with Dartmouth, Dittisham and Totnes all within easy reach. Dartmouth's array of boutiques, restaurants and tea rooms, as well as the picturesque River Dart are all accessible within a (steep) 20-30 minute walk, or about 5 minutes in the car, whilst the award winning Blackpool Sands beach is just a short drive away. Woodlands Theme Park and Dartmouth Golf and Country Club are just 3-4 miles away.
VIEWS Stunning views from the sitting room over the creek and surrounding woodland.
