Nestled just beyond the banks of peaceful Bow Creek, an inlet of South Devon's majestic River Dart, is the oh-so stylish Perchwood Cottage within the pretty waterside hamlet of Tuckenhay.  It is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family holiday, and its idyllic position is a great base from which to explore the South Hams where golden beaches, craggy coves and scenic country rambles reign supreme.   Alongside the owner's home, Perchwood Cottage is one half of a lovingly refurbished stone cottage which oozes attention to detail, bespoke fabrics, crafted furnishings and an abundance of warm welcoming ambiance.  Its light and airy open plan living area boasts double doors opening into the garden to bring the outside in, and for those cosy winter nights snuggle down amongst the comfy sofas set in front of the wood burner.  A relaxing twin bedroom is complemented by two sleek bathrooms, one with a sumptuous roll top slipper bath, and the piece de resistance is the spacious second floor double bedroom which offers glorious unspoilt views up and down Bow Creek and across to scenic woodland.  Simply relax, unwind and watch the ebb and flow of the tide from an unrivalled vantage point. 

For those who can tear themselves away from this peaceful haven, Tuckenhay is a short drive from the eclectic bustling town of Totnes which is renowned for its wide selection of art galleries, boutique shops and Sharpham Vineyard.   Alternatively, head downstream to Dartmouth which is a hotspot for sailing activities or perhaps lose yourself along one of the many stunning coastal walks.  After a day's exploring, why not sip cocktails or sample some delicious local food in one of the two waterside pubs which are both within a short walk from Perchwood Cottage.  This cottage won't fail to delight!
