Millwater Cottages

Located in the pretty village of Dalwood, Millwater Cottage and Riverbank are two adjoining, three-bedroom cottages dating back to 1849 beside the River Cory and surrounded by the Devonshire countryside. Take a stroll into the village and you will find a community run, well-stocked village shop, and Post Office, along with a 12th-century thatched inn, The Tuckers Arms, where a warm welcome, locally-sourced food and beverages await. Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, between two ridges of the Blackdown Hills, the area has an abundance of rural charm with local walks and attractions waiting to be explored. Dalwood has its own vineyard, renowned for its award-winning sparkling and white wines, and open to the public for tours and tasting. For garden lovers, the Burrow Farm Gardens, recently featured on Gardeners World, are a horticultural delight so why spend a day exploring the formal gardens, wild flower meadows and nursery before enjoying an afternoon cream tea. Further afield, the coastal town of Lyme Regis offers visitors a great selection of seaside activities from watersports and boat trips from the famous Cobb Harbour, or even just a leisurely stroll along the seafront before settling down for a meal at one of the many eateries. A tram ride from nearby Seaton takes you along the River Axe estuary to the market town of Colyton. For nature lovers, the Seaton Wetlands Centre has nearly 4km of level trails and boardwalk through beautiful marshland and reed beds alongside the River Axe, which is home to an abundance of wildlife. The coast is also dotted with pretty villages, including Branscombe and the fishing village of Beer, where you can explore the local galleries or watch the fishermen haul their daily catch onto the beach. The Jurassic Coast is a diverse stretch of dramatic coastline with walks along the South West coastal footpath, taking in sites including Golden Cap, rewarding walkers with far reaching and stunning coastal views.
