Charming cottage in riverside Tuckenhay

Quay Cottage, a beautiful thatched period cottage with three bedrooms and low maintenance gardens is situated within the charming village of Tuckenhay, just beyond the well reputed Maltsters Arms public house. The grade II listed cottage enjoys an elevated position with stunning views of the river and countryside beyond.

With close proximity to Bow Creek, owned by The Duchy of Cornwall, this tidal tributary of the River Dart estuary is navigable by small boats for about 3 hours either side of the high tide and offers many a waterside adventure. 

The ground floor accommodation comprises the spacious dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. A stone stairway leads to the first floor where there is a main bedroom and en-suite shower room and large and impressive sitting room enjoying magnificent views over the river. 

To the front of the property is a flower bed planted with attractive shrubs and a pathway leading to the front door. The rear paved garden which also has gated access from the road affords beautiful views to the river. There is also a gravelled area which runs around the back and partially to the side of the property, creating a lovely sunny seating spot. There is a large private enclosed stone parking area with gravel finish and raised stone borders providing parking for four cars. A timber fuel store and two sheds also add to the useful outdoor furnishings.

Quay Cottage is offered to the market with a guide price of £400,000. For further information please contact Marchand Petit’s Totnes office on 01803 847979. 

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.


We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.


In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
