This beautiful farm overlooks the freshwater lake of Slapton Ley and the wide reaches of Start Bay with the three-mile stretch of shingle beach within walking distance. The cottage has lovely landscaped gardens at the front and rear, stunning views from most windows and is most thoughtfully and comfortably decorated and furnished - a wonderful place from which to explore this lovely area both summer and winter. Tea, coffee and milk are provided.

Steps lead down from the parking bay to the back door, which opens out into a spacious living room with windows and glazed door all overlooking the lovely views. The sitting area has polished wood flooring with rugs and comfortable sofas, TV with Freeview, video recorder/DVD/CD player, a wood burner set in a small hearth, and dining table to seat 4.

The double bedroom with 5ft bed has good views and a door giving access to the lane and parking bay. Twin bedroom (3ft beds). The bathroom between the two rooms has bath, shower over, basin and WC.

A private drive leads up to the barns, the majority of which are residential, and the cottage has its own parking bay alongside the drive. The very pretty gardens at the front and rear of the cottage, both with patio areas and supplied with table and chairs, are landscaped and make the most of the lovely surroundings. The climbing roses on the cottage and the roses round the patio areas are at their best from the end of May through June with the scent of roses on warm afternoons.

enjoyed the barn and lovely garden and views. Would recommend and have recommended to friends already.

June 2019

We enjoyed our stay, and we wished we could have stayed longer than the one week we had booked. The nearby Farm Shop was an unexpected bonus - it was larger than we had expected, offered a wide range of products and was perfect for day to day supplies.

May 2019

Beautiful garden and patio, lovely relaxing holiday.

May 2019

3rd visit and still the best ever holiday rental. Sheilah could run a masterclass in how to own and run a holiday home! Never want to leave what is now ‘our’ home in Devon.

May 2019

This is a lovely property very high spec and in a great location we have stayed here many times

April 2019

March 2019

Our second visit to Tilly's Tuckaway, and it really is a superb property ! Wonderful views from every room, beautifully furnished and equipped. Will return next year for certain !

September 2018

We did enjoy our stay but the steep approach made it difficult for my husband on foot due to his health problems.

August 2018

This is the second time we have stayed and it is an absolute first class location and property Sheila and her husband were fantastic hosts and even organised a second clean after our first week. Sheila is a lovely lady and is unobtrusive and very caring to ensure you have a great stay X Toadhall cottages X - great company with excellent communication especially with the follow up emails concerning the closure of the slapton coastal road and also the follow up things to do email which I found to be a nice touch Thank you Ian Orton

July 2018

One of the best holiday accommodation we have used

April 2018

Within 4 hours of arrival I was on the website booking another week in October, I think that says it all!!

April 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tilly's Tuckaway. Lovely property with superb views of both Start Bay and Slapton Ley. Easy walking distance to Torcross, and Slapton Sands. Very close to Stokeley Barton farm shop and restaurant, with very nice food served in the restaurant. We hope to return there again, next year.

February 2018

We loved it so much that we have booked again in October :)

October 2017

A little corner of Heaven - just perfect! We were so impressed with the cottage, facilities and the location that we have booked up for another holiday there next summer! Counting the days...

October 2017

Excellent accommodation, a very warm welcome on arrival with lovely treats. We would recommend this cottage to anyone and hope to return in the future

October 2017

Our family love staying at Tilly's Tuckaway, it's such a beautiful and relaxing barn conversion in an idyllic setting. It always gets a ten out of ten from us. The owner, Mrs Sheila Mocatta, too is so lovely and very kindly supplied extra bedding for us on our last visit, which was very good of her as it meant extra work for her, washing, drying etc. Please would you pass onto her our appreciative thanks.

September 2017

We loved the location and were impressed with the care and attention to detail in the cottage. After two days we booked again for next year - what more can I say?

September 2017

so nice to have enough comfortable seating, inside and out. Also the quality of chinaware makes it special.

August 2017

Loved the bottle in the fridge and the milk. Also biscuits were great as well. Fresh flower were also most welcome. We enjoyed our stay apart from the combine harvester that ran until early Friday morning, but it was going to rain the following day so understand as worked on a farm when I was a youngster. We will return as the local pubs bar one in the village were very friendly and we want to do some more visits in the area.

July 2017

This was our second stay at the property two years running and we found it a great stay as we did last year. In our opion this is the best overall cottage that we have stayed at since we have booked with Toad Hall a number of years now. We will think about booking Tilleys again next year.

July 2017

For the fourth year running we had a wonderful relaxing break at Tilly's Tuckaway. Sheilah has thought of everything possible to make the cottage perfect. Thank you

May 2017

Excellent in every respect!

March 2017

One of the best self catering cottages that I have ever stayed in. The cottage had a lovely atmosphere and was in a good location with wonderful views. The place was very comfortable, and felt spacious even though it was only two bedroomed. The furnishings, fittings and appliances were of a good standard. One for a future stay hopefully.

March 2017

Fab place, the best owner, loved it! Location & views amazing. So clean and well kitted out. Fabulous garden.

September 2016

This was our second stay at Tilly's, having stayed at another property close by in between, we were eager to go back here as it's such lovely accommodation. Great place, fantastic views and very well equipped, it feels like a home from home. We will go back to Tillys in the future but unfortunately not next year as our dates have already been booked up!

August 2016

Excellent holiday cottage in a great location , furnished to an high standard -everything needed was there. Owner welcomed use and said that she was available if needed. Great Food in local pubs and a lovely farm shop/garden centre for your everyday needs. Great for couples and families alike.

July 2016

A lovely cottage in a beautiful location, it was just perfect for a week away.

April 2016

A wonderful part of Devon, and this cottage is a perfect place to explore the South Hams from. The views are breathtaking. Very comfortable, spotlessly clean and well equipped, Mrs Mocatta was the perfect host.Highly recommended.

May 2015

Tilly's Tuckaway is a beautiful, quiet holiday destination with glorious views and the most delightful garden. Furnishings and equipment are more than adequate and the situation is perfect for exploring the South Hams, being about midway between Dartmouth and Kingsbridge/Salcombe. Hope to spend many more holidays there!

April 2015

Lovely cottage in a lovely part of Devon.

April 2015

Tilly's tuckaway was superb in every respect, and the warm welcome given by the owner just added to the wonderful experience we had all round. The cottage, its comforts, amenities and location, can't be faulted. A really wonderful find.

June 2014

This cottage is a little gem! So clean, beautifully decorated and well thought out. We had such a relaxing, quiet time there in such beautiful surroundings. We hope that the new owner will be renting it out so that we can stay there again.

November 2013

Tillys Tuckaway is our favorite place to stay in Devon. When you look out across Slapton Ley and the sea it just takes a few minutes to unwind and relax and thats how we stay for the rest of our holiday.

August 2013

We had a fabulous stay at Tilly's Tuckaway... a beautiful, tranquil little cottage with amazing views and all mod cons. Barbequed every night with meat from the farm shop down the road. All the kids loved it... lots of new sights and sounds. We would definitely recommend it to our friends.

May 2013

Tilly's Cottage was one of the best cottages we have been to. It was superbly equipped, in a beautiful location and spotlessly clean. Mr Thompson the owner was very helpful, especially when we arrived and there was water coming out of the boiler! He got the plumber the next day, and all was well. We will be back. A lovely week spent near to where we used to live.

The second time of visiting this cottage although the 30th year of going to Stockenham/Torcross. The cottage is perfect. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and the most beautiful and well stocked garden. The views are glorious, nice 15 minute walk into village. Daily essentials at the farm shop 5 minutes away. Could not better it.
