About the Owner

We used to live in Devon but are now beavering away in Surrey. We love to stay at Millwheel ourselves for getaways in the winter months and love the area. Hopefully we will go back one day - it's our favourite part of the UK.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a wonderful couple of days at Millwheel cottage and very much enjoyed the grounds too - including the playpark and pool/darts room. The cottage is cosy and has everything you need for a restful stay. A real bonus for us was the provision of toys in the cottage for our two young children. I would definitely recommend Millwheel Cottage." (Victoria)



"We had a lovely time and have already recommended the cottages to two other families. We had a great time and will certainly be back again. The indoor pool was great and we used it twice every day, the cottages were extremely well equipped and we really felt at home. The pub was just a few minutes away and had free wi-fi and morning coffee!" (Paul)



"The cottage is extremely comfortable, very clean and well equipped.We were made to feel welcome by the owner from first enquiry until the end of our stay with everything relating to our stay being handled very efficiently and quickly. The estate is pretty and well located." (J)

Mill wheel cottage

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a lovely holiday. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped especially if you have a baby or toddler. The facilities at the site are brilliant - we swam every day and our 8 year old loved being able to explore the grounds and make new friends with other children holidaying at the site. We would definitely recommend the cottage and general area - stunning local beaches and Dartmoor in easy reach.

Lovely Half Term Family Break

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Millwheel cottage for a week in May half term and had a wonderful stay in Devon. We chose Millwheel cottage for it's location - only 20 - 30 mins drive to various beaches and attractions. (Although not far by the mile, the country lanes meant every journey takes twice as long!) The cottage and amenities were as described. We liked that the cottage was self catering and had an indoor and outdoor pool as well as a games room and outside play area for kids. We made full use of the indoor pool - however the outdoor pool was honestly too cold for us to enjoy for more than 5 mins! (Apparently one of the heaters was broken). The cottage itself was the downstairs only of a small cottage and had one large kitchen/diner/lounge area, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. It was perfectly adequate and clean. Linens and towels as well as cleaning products were provided so after doing your own food shop, you're all set. The barbeque in the garden was a useful addition as we were able to make use of it a lot as the weather was so good. The garden isn't south facing though so you don't get the sun in the late afternoon/evening - but luckily it was still warm enough to sit outside for a while into the evening. The site has 20 privately owned rental cottages but although it was busy, it didn't feel crowded or noisy. We felt very safe and would happily go back for future breaks in Devon. Lesley was helpful, informative and efficient with passing out detailed instructions, returning the deposit etc. She even left out some delicious home made scones and jam for our arrival - yum!

Lovely stay in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday and the place was just lovely. The owners were very accommodating leading up to the holiday, answering any questions we had quickly. The place itself had everything for a young family - playground, grounds to explore, swimming pool and even a tub of toys and games. It was in a really nice area to explore - close to beaches, towns with restaurants and cafes, and easily enough you can be at the Dartmoor National Park. We had a lovely long weekend!
