Built in a traditional Devon style, Pool Cottage is a modern family home which meets all the criteria for that memorable holiday break in a superb waterside setting with plenty of space and comfort.  The cottage is on the edge of the Mill Pond and has superb uninterrupted views across the water from the spacious, reverse level living room with balcony  and the double bedroom downstairs.  There is a   sunny lawn fully enclosed by stone walls making it a safe area for children to play outside..  Besides  convenient  parking for two cars adjacent to the cottage, there is Superfast fibre 2 Broadband, UHD 4k TV plus blu ray player and a blue tooth enabled cd player.   The River Shack café is just on the quay which is a popular spot for crabbing.  There are lovely walks nearby including one  to Mill Point where the local Boating Association have their club house and the views of the Dart are spectacular.  Two popular pubs and Emma’s restaurant mean there is little reason to travel further afield.

Stoke Gabriel nestles on a creek on the edge of the River Dart and enjoys a beautiful tree fringed Mill Pool.  The quay opens out to the wide stretches of the River Dart so bring your boat, launch from the slipway (Dart Harbour Authority licence required) and explore the dreamy waters of the estuary, a haven for boat enthusiasts. Kayaks can be hired from the quay as well. Small craft could be stored in the garden or in one of the parking spaces.  Not much further afield are the secluded beaches and coves of South Hams to discover or the wild expanses of Dartmoor to roam.  This is South Devon at its best.


Please note : This property offers a discounted price for one couple in the low and mid season. When a small party discount is applied only the master bedroom will be made up.

Lovely, unusual property in a beautiful location. Extremely well equipped. Stoke Gabriel is a lovely village, and close to many other South Devon attractions. Highly recommended ??????????

We always enjoy staying here. The setting is perfect and the people are very friendly. The lady who looks after the property lives nearby and is always on hand if needed, but its never needed, but its good to know she is there, just in case!

November 2015

There were so many extras in this cottage which really added to the holiday -maps, torch, tea, coffee, jam. An excellent property in a perfect location!

August 2015

Overall, very impressed with the whole Toad Hall Cottage experience. The booking administration was a painless process and was enhanced by the feeling that you have a very personalised service from your assigned agent. But the real gem of course has to be the property itself; Pool Cottage in Stoke Gabriel. Situated in a simply stunning location at the water's edge it can't fail to impress. The balcony is perfect for observing the abundant wildlife or simply watching the world go by. This, coupled with a very high standard of furnishing and fittings, assures a high end holiday experience. Well done Toad Hall Cottages. Thanks for the memories.

July 2015

Another wonderful stay. Excellent sailing and kayaking. Great times with the locals too! Home from home. Excellent snoozes in the very comfortable cloud like bed.

July 2015

We came here for a nice break with our son and his family and we certainly had a very nice break. The elder of the 2 youngsters really had a great time crabbing. The beds are very comfortable and we all slept well. Would recommend a visit to 'Coleton Fishacre'. Then back to the house to enjoy the view and more crabbing!

May 2013

The cottage was even better than we expected. What a great location.
