Nestled beyond the peaceful Bow Creek in the pretty hamlet of Tuckenhay lies Perchwood Shippon, a very well presented waterside property. With its idyllic position surrounded by water and a great base to explore the South Hams, it is perfect for a family getaway. The stone property oozes style, contemporary living, and cosyness all under one roof. Relax beside the waterside from the sunny terrace and conservatory, or snuggle in the lounge in front of the fire. The kitchen boasts an impressive island unit and offers plenty of space for cooking and dining. All 4 bedrooms are presented to a very high standard with oak flooring, charcterful exposed beams and all have ensuite bathrooms.

June 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Perchwood Shippon. It was a beautiful cottage, set in an enchanting location, very well equipped and extremely comfortable with good quality furniture and furnishings. The bathrooms had plenty of hot water and the bed and bed linen were of very good quality and really comfortable. We would love to return some other time soon!

we would come back for certain....but some changes as above would certainly help.

Glad you had a good week and we'll pass your comments on to the owner. Hope to see you back soon.

December 2017

Eight of us enjoyed 4 days in this wonderful riverside cottage and couldn't ask for anything more. The log fire was very welcome when walking home from the two pubs 600 metres away. Very comfortable clean and warm. Facilities were excellent. Well recommended. 10/10

October 2017

Absolutely fantastic in all respects, no complaints at all. Would thoroughly recommend this house.

October 2017

Generally, a superb house, thats beautifully finished and maintained, in a fantastic location. The issue with the electric cooker was the only slight niggle. We would have no hesitation in returning or highly recommending Perchwood Shippon

So sorry you had a problem with the cooker. We've got that repaired now, but delighted you still had an enjoyable stay.

Wonderful house and beautiful peaceful setting. The caretakers, Liz and Alan, were very helpful and gave instant help when there was a power cut.

July 2017

We had a super stay at this lovely, well appointed cottage. Excellent specification throughout. We live in Maidenhead, but wish we could get the high speed broadband we got in the small hamlet of Tuckenhay!! Shame about the lack of mobile phone signal, but hey, that isn't such a bad thing when relaxing on holiday. Highly recommended.

November 2016

Delightful property in a beautiful location, everything we wanted and more. A family holiday with our 3 children, grandparents

June 2016

An absolutely stunning location - a little piece of heaven. Woke up to the sun glistening on the water and was lucky enough to spot a couple of kingfishers too. Had a very relaxing few days in beautiful surroundings, would love to return. The house couldn't have been better situated and very spacious, lovely to have had such huge bedrooms and for us all to have had an ensuite bathroom too. Such a beautiful spot and great area for exploring. Particularly loved Totnes on market day"
