    “Millers Cottage was gorgeous - easy to find, well equipped, beautifully decorated, very clean and absolutely wonderful.”

    Jacqui was lovely, had thought of the little extras, and it was a pleasure to meet you. We hope to be back again soon - thank you!

The property

Newton Abbot 3 miles.

This semi-detached cottage is a former miller’s cottage; part of an Historic England Grade II listed corn grinding water mill, set beside the River Lemon in a rural area, three miles from The English Riviera town of Newton Abbot.

This well-restored three-storey house feels welcoming, spacious and light with plenty of exposed beams, stone walls, antique furniture and interesting fireplaces.

The ground floor living room is tiled with underfloor heating and is home to a woodburner, ensuring a warm and cosy atmosphere where you can relax in comfort.

Upstairs, the bedrooms sit across the first and second floors, including two doubles plus a bathroom with a character, claw-footed bath on the first floor, and two doubles with an additional family bathroom on the second floor.

The kitchen was originally the dairy parlour; now it offers a breakfast area, the perfect place to grab a bite to eat before heading out for the day.

Doors open onto the rear riverside patio with furniture, a sunny place to sit and listen to the birds.

The grounds surrounding the cottage are wild meadows where guests are free to wander down to the river.

Nearby, The English Riviera is a lively holiday area with several beaches including those at Torquay, Teignmouth and Shaldon, whilst the wild moors of Dartmoor can be found within just a couple of miles.

There is also the Hedgehog Hospital in Newton Abbot, Babbacombe Model Village, Paignton Zoo and several spectacular National Trust properties, all within easy reach.

This unique cottage is full of character and is sure to provide a warm and welcoming retreat after your daily Devon adventure.

About the location


Teignmouth 5 miles; Shaldon 5 miles; Torquay 10 miles.

Newton Abbot is situated in the heart of The English Riviera, with its mild climate and thriving palm trees. The ancient market town now offers plenty of modern shops and the famous Hedgehog Hospital, where visitors are encouraged to feed and hold the animals. There's also a racecourse where National Hunt racing takes place from spring until autumn, with craft fayres during winter. Newton Abbot has one of the only traditional working malthouses left in the UK, offering the finest selection of bottled beers in Devon. The nearby seaside towns of Teignmouth and Shaldon are very nearby and are fantastic destinations for families. Spend a day on the beach building sand castles and walk the impressive Victorian Pier at Teignmouth. The National Trust houses of Bradley Manor, Coleton Fishacre and Compton Castle are well worth a visit, whilst the highlight of your stay will undoubtedly be the stunning beaches around Torquay and the many hidden coves such as Meadfoot, Oddicombe and farther afield the pretty Ness Cove. And of course, the South West Coast Path provides stunning seascapes across the bay, with a popular stretch from Torquay Harbour to Daddyhole Plain, passing through Beacon Cove where Agatha Christie used to swim as a girl. Newton Abbot provides a fabulous base for an English seaside holiday all year round.
