rural retreats

Would you love some peace and tranquility to write and be creative? 

Watermill Cottages is a haven for Writing in the Wildwriters, artists, nature lovers and creatives, where you'll revitalise your creativity and restore your sense of well-being. 

Write by the stream, by the campfire, on the seat by the leat as the Gara Brook flows over fallen weirs beside you.  Sketch in the orchard.  Take a picnic to the Sunset Field and watch the light and clouds change over the sea and the lighthouse.

Five comfy, atmospheric stone cottages, thick walls, beams, a log burner and outside, a garden with bbq.  A 24-hour nature channel outside your window, a stream to soothe, ancient land with literary heritage in which to wander...  Green lanes to lead you round the valley or further afield. 

All around or in an eighteenth century former watermill in 20 magical acres near the sea on a working smallholding with its own water turbine and electric car charging point. 

Space for your thoughts and ideas without interruption.  It’s a real digital detox without wifi, mobile or TV signal (there’s a phone in the office and mobile reception up the lane if you do need contact).  Experience natural time and discover a quieter way of being which ticks along to the sound of the stream. 

Step away from the hurly burly of modern life and treat yourself to peace and tranquillity at Watermill Cottages in South Devon’s AONB near Slapton, Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Totnes.
