The bed of the creek and foreshore are owned by The Duchy of Cornwall and the north bank opposite, Crownley Wood, was acquired by the National Trust with monies raised by local residents. The lovely woodland outlook across the creek is now preserved in perpetuity.
The view down the creek towards the Dart approximately three quarters of a mile away is delightful; a wonderfully peaceful prospect of rural England. At low tide numerous wading birds can be observed feeding along the banks and on the river bed whilst at high water there is often interesting human water-borne activity to be seen.
The beautiful and historic port of Dartmouth is approximately six miles away down river and the bustling medieval market town of Totnes with its many ancient and listed buildings, large Morrisons supermarket and thriving local shops is about four miles away. This part of south Devon, known as The South Hams, is renowned for its beauty and Tuckenhay Quay lies within an officially designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Conservation Area. Dartmoor National Park is ten miles to the north and there are stunning beaches and coastline ten miles to the south. Totnes has a mainline railway station giving direct connections to London Paddington. There is also easy access to the A38 Devon Expressway linking Plymouth and Exeter where it joins the M5. Schooling in the area is excellent with a number of well-regarded primary and secondary schools.

The Quay is situated within the charming village of Tuckenhay on the south bank of Bow Creek, one of the tributaries of the River Dart. The renowned inn, The Maltsters Arms is a few steps away along the quay. The creek dries out at low water to a narrow stream fed by the River Harbourne which rises on Dartmoor. It is navigable by small boats about three hours either side of high water. Until 1939 commercial craft tied up alongside serving the cider works on the quay and probably the important paper mill nearby. In 1985 the substantial warehouse on the quay was tastefully converted into four beautiful homes and a little later flats were created on the site of the cider press alongside, using much of the original stone. The houses retain the massive stone exterior walls and the original thick slated roof. No. 4 is an end-of-terrace property enjoying additional light from windows in the flank wall.

The freehold of the property extends to the face of the quay but the maintenance of the access road, driveway, quay and car-park is in the hands of The Tuckenhay Quay Residents Association which employs a gardener on behalf of all owners. The vendors report that there has been a remarkably slow turnover of ownership since the houses were built in 1985 and there remains a low-key but pleasing communal spirit.
