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.
The bohemian town of Totnes is upstream offering a variety of shops, cafes, and restaurants, and the popular yachting port of Dartmouth can be found downstream. Centrally located in the stunning South Hams, visitors have access to many beautiful sandy beaches, plenty of market towns and villages, and country walks. Dartmoor National Park is only a short drive away, offering activities for the energetic, but the comfort and serenity of Perchwood Shippon always welcomes you home.

Wonderful house and beautiful peaceful setting. The caretakers, Liz and Alan, were very helpful and gave instant help when there was a power cut.
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.
Delightful property in a beautiful location, everything we wanted and more. A family holiday with our 3 children, grandparents
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"
