Glorious uninterrupted views are enjoyed from this very special detached, stone barn conversion, set on the edge of an exclusive development of the farm buildings of Stokeley Barton. 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.

Please Note that this property is unsuitable for children under the age of 4, although babes in arms are welcome.

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. Thekitchen is well equipped with good range of fitted units, electric hob, built-in electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer. Open-tread stairs lead up to the landing. 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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
