Description

The Old Mill is a comfortable and tasteful presented holiday home that has been imaginatively converted from the original mill to make a superb individual, spacious and characterful property, ideally suited for those looking for a self catering holiday close to the sandy beaches of East Portlemouth, South Devon and the busy Salcombe estuary. Tucked away in the shadow of the Norman church it enjoys a delightful unspoilt rural location and it is a pleasant stroll downhill to the beautiful sandy beaches and the passenger ferry that can take you across to Salcombe, bustling with activity during the season. This property is also pet friendly, so there’s no excuse for not getting out and about and doing some serious walking. The National Trust headlands and South West Coastal Path are nearby, granting the visitor some truly spectacular views of this beautiful coastline. The village of East Prawle, with its popular pub, The Pigs Nose, provides an entertaining venue and Torcross, with its shingle beach and freshwater nature reserve and the former fishing village of Beesands, both with excellent pub/restaurants are also worth visiting.

Please Note: With bookings taking advantage of the smaller party discount only two bedrooms will be made up. Please specify which ones you'd prefer at the time of booking.

Please flag that the oven indeed takes a long time to heat up and if not set properly doesn't heat up at all.... other than that, everything worked well and we were very comfortable - mattresses are really comfortable and the power showers are exceptional!

Delighted that you had an enjoyable stay and we'll look into the oven issue. Thank you for letting us know.

Equipment - We have left a note in the visitors book about the electric oven, as it took over an hour to reach temperature and we think that an element may have gone????? Cleanliness - We also had to run most of the crockery and cutlery through the dishwasher again before being able to use any of it. The bowls, mugs and plates still had food and grease and soup on them and the cutlery was a little ''concerning'' - It may be an idea to get the cleaners to check the crockery etc. before leaving the property to the next guests to find it. Can we suggest that if the property provided dishwasher tablets then the guests may wash up properly - As it was obvious that the previous occupants have used the dishwasher with now tablets or powder in the machine. Only a small point, but really down to your cleaner / checker to find not the next set of guests!

Thank you for forwarding your feedback, we will get the oven looked at. With regards to the cleaning we are sorry that the crockery and cutlery was dirty this should have been checked prior to your arrival and we will look into why this was overlooked. We hope you enjoyed your stay at The Old Mill. Many Thanks, The Toad Hall Team.

2nd Visit with another one booked for New Year. Best place, perfect for a relaxing weekend break.


January 2017

Lovely house, cracking location and worked brilliantly for our young family. Incredibly well set out with lots and lots of space and just gutted if is already booked up for next year otherwise we would have booked up straight away.


January 2017

A couple of things re the Cottage. 1. The master bed is uncomfortable and needs changing, there were springs in our backs. 2. The coffee plunger needs replacing. 3. Clearer instructions to work the boiler Our biggest issue was that there were no towels. We came all the way from Malaysia so didnt bring towels with us. I realise this was stated on the booking form but we would have appreciated it being highlighted to us in an email as you can tell from our address we are not UK residents. Despite these things we really enjoyed ourselves and the Cottage was comfortable. Thank you.

Thank you for your feedback, the mattress has been replaced and cafetiere has also been replaced. We are sorry the towel situation was not understood. This is clear on the website and other details now. Please do let us know if you are in this situation in one of our properties we can advise where these can be hired from. Many Thanks, The Toad Hall Team.

An excellent weeks holiday had by everyone helped by a very nice cottage to stay in and plenty of sunshine will visit again


April 2014

Loved our holiday at The Old Mill and appreciated the smooth organisation of Toad Hall Cottages. Looking forward to returning in the summer.


November 2013

We (7 of us plus 2 dogs) had a wonderful week at The Old Mill. The Cottage is delightful, roomy and very comfortable with stunning scenery. The ideal place to relax and unwind. The roads are extremely narrow for cars and I can imagine its very stressful in the summer months with the added vehicles on the roads. It should be noted on the description that the cottage is extremely remote and the property isn't suitable for people who don't want to walk massive hills. Otherwise a great half term spent doing nothing but eating and drinking. Thank you Toad Hall Cottages.


October 2013

All was great,we had a very good week
