“Wonderful place! We'll be back”

Just arrived home from a 3 night break at Gara Mill. We chose Gara Mill as we were desperate for a 'getaway' after a hectic few weeks at work it was what we desperately needed. We stayed in no 7, Tree top. A beautiful 3 bedroom lodge. Main bedroom with ensuite, twin second room, double third room. Main bathroom with large bath. Huge open plan kitchen, dinner & lounge area. All beautifully decorated with lovely soft furnishings. The beds were comfy with lovely duvet covers. Nice big fluffy towels. I was worried we may be cold but the lodge had central heating and stayed very warm. The kitchen was well equipped, so much so we were able to make roast beef with all the trimmings! Also great that the kitchen had a washing machine and a dishwasher. Free wifi (although intermittent) and a home phone for emergency calls as there was no mobile phone signal. Beautiful views out of the lounge windows and set by the river the children loved going in to the woods for a walk. Only a couple of down sides, the kitchen sink was really grubby. I ended up giving it a really good clean. The hot tub was a lovely addition and the children loved it, although it too was a big grubby, full of floating bits. And just a couple points of constructive criticism, the kitchen could do with a potato masher :) and a towel rail could do with being fitted to the side of the lodge to put your towels when your in the hot tub, it was slightly drizzling when we were in the hot tub and we had to put our towels in the wet floor. Do not be put off by the few moans, it was a lovely break, just what the doctor ordered! Thanks Gara Mill for being such a great place!

“A perfect get away from it all in a peaceful location”

We stayed here in June 2015. This place is fabulous. If you are looking for amenities in walking distance then this place isn't for you. You reach the lodge along a 5 mile single track but it's worth the drive! This place is a perfect getaway from it all location. All you can hear at night is the babbling stream and the birds in the trees. The lodges are simply perfect. All the linen and towels are provided and the dishwasher is a welcome bonus when you are on holiday. We visited the goats in the meadow which is right next to the lodge. They are very friendly! These lodges are perfectly located to visit the local areas of Dartmouth, Brixham and Torquay. A visit to the Star Bay Inn for fish and chips, just down the road in Torcross is a must! It gets very busy but it's well worth it. Another must visit is the lovely Salcombe, again only a short drive away but a really lovely place. We had a wonderful holiday here and I can't recommend it enough. It was a lovely holiday. Thank you Gara Mill!

“Perfect relaxing break deep in the countryside”

Lodges at Gara Mill were a great break. Peaceful and relaxing and the lodges are spacious and comfortable. Loved the hot-tub. Great for dogs, waking and getting a bit closer to nature. Only 10-15 minutes drive from larger villages and 20-30 mins from beaches etc. Hosts (and goats!) very friendly and welcoming. In the past we have tried to stay out for as long as possible but it was great to come back to comfort every day.
