Gages Mill is on the southern edge of Dartmoor, just a few minutes walk from the fantastic town of Ashburton. Gages Mill is a perfect base from which to explore many areas of the South West Coast and Dartmoor. If you have a love of the sea then places such as Dartmouth and Salcombe easily spring to mind or explore Dartmoor where you can walk, ride, fish and visit historic towns such as Tavistock and Widecombe in the Moor and a wide variety of spectacular landmarks. There are great pubs in Ashburton and locally on Dartmoor where good food can be enjoyed in a true country pub setting.
Gages Mill derives much charm and appeal from its location and exudes an abundance of character. The atmosphere is wonderfully calm, relaxed and homely.
The mature gardens extend to an acre. There are seating areas where you can pass your spare time relaxing, chatting or simply surrendering yourself to the wildlife around you.
There is a comfortable and cosy guest television lounge which benefits from original granite walls and a wood burning stove.
Gages Mill offers six double guest bedrooms and one twin room – the twin is on the ground floor. All rooms have en-suite facilities, independently controlled central heating and open countryside views. High quality mattresses, bed linen, toiletries and bath towels are provided as is a hairdryer and tea and coffee making facilities.
Bedroom doors are lockable and you will be given a set of bedroom and house keys – you are able to come and go as you wish.
Please note that there are NO televisions in the bedrooms. A television is available in the guest lounge.
In the morning, help yourself to a range of fresh cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurts, conserves and juices. There is a choice of a wide range of teas or freshly filtered coffee and a choice of brown or white toast. The ‘centre-piece’ Full English Breakfast boasts sausages and bacon supplied by Dartmoor Butchers in Ashburton and eggs supplied by Ladilay, a local family business producing free range organic eggs.
Gages Mill is licensed and are able to offer a carefully chosen selection of wines and beers.
Free WiFi is offered with good connection (usually) in the guest lounge and usually reception in the bedrooms – but please do remember Gages Mill is a 14 Century building with very thick walls and that ‘superfast’, whether it be broadband or anything else, isn’t really an Ashburton thing.
