About Lesley Thomas
We used to live in Devon but are now beavering away in Surrey. We love to stay at Millwheel ourselves for getaways in the winter months and love the area. Hopefully we will go back one day - it's our favourite part of the UK and Bigbury Beach is the best I have found.
Lesley Thomas purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Lesley Thomas chose North Huish
Millwheel is set in the South Hams which is a delightful part of South Devon twixt coast and moor. The fast A38 can whizz you there speedily, but once there it's a real getaway.
What makes this Apartment unique
The South Hams can be enjoyed all year round. There is much to choose from: whether its a bracing moorland walk you are after with a cream tea, or a paddle at the seaside followed by sampling of local food and wine.

Nice property in lovely and quiet surroundings. Great facilities to use within the cottage complex - good size outside pool which was kept clean, indoor pool, gym, table tennis and tennis court. Ideal place if you wish to relax. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and warm sunny weather was a bonus!
So glad you had a lovely time. The weather has been amazing!
Very comfortable and lovely grounds
We had a lovely stay, the apartment had everything we needed. Really enjoyed the pools and lovely grounds of the estate.
Fabulous short break
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mill Wheel cottage. The cottage was perfect for the two of us and the facilities were an added bonus. We swam in the outdoor pool each evening which was a real treat. Played table tennis and walked around the grounds. We drove to Salcombe and watched the gig racing, went on a river trip in Dartmouth (would recommend) and had a ride on the steam train along the coast. Would love to return.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. It certainly sounds as though you made the most of it! Hope to see you again before too long.
Great cottage in lovely location
Millwheel cottage has everything you need. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. The cream tea on arrival was very welcome and a lovely touch! The indoor pool was lovely and warm and the tennis court fab. The local petrol station up the road stocks the Cook range which allowed us to have some nice affordable meals in as well as treats out. The cottage is well located for lots of what Devon has to offer.
Beautiful and relaxing
Wonderful last minute family break in beautiful surroundings with great facilities
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Millwheel Cottage.
Lovely cosy little cottage
Lovely little appartment, fully equipped in a pretty estate. We made full use if the heated indoor pool which was great and even the little gym above which I was delighted to discover!! We really enjoyed our stay, fantastic break away from the routine.
It must be lovely in the summer with the huge outdoor pool and lovely kids play area!
We were 2 adults, 3 children from 8-12 and a latge dog and were cosy but fiine for a few days!
Thank you Lesley!
I'm glad you had a good time in spite of the damp weather. The indoor pool is a treat in the winter!
