Gara Mill is an ancient, wooded valley in the South Devon area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are oak, beech, sycamore, elder, willow and alder trees. There are rare orchids, blankets of bluebells, purple foxgloves, wild garlic and red campion. Nocturnal animals particularly depend on these disappearing British habitats: otters travel the river and owls call and swoop through the night sky. There are bats and moths, brown trout and slow worms, dragonflies and demoiselles. Gara Mill is a truly magical rural retreat.
With close and easy access to the South West Coastal Path and the local village and restaurants, The Cabin has something for everyone and is perfect for couples, friends or families.
