Grade 2 listed town house at top of Totnes near Castle
Gail and Roger are both now retired after working in the public sector and bringing up a wonderful family. Our son went to Dartington college and that's when we discovered Totnes
Why Gail chose Totnes
We were drawn to the house as it had been empty and neglected for two years and we purchased it and gave it the love and attention it needed. We have worked hard on it and made it into a homely place trying to retain some of its unique features.
What makes this House unique
As we love Totnes and the surrounding area we thought the house was in the perfect location….in the heart of the quirky town.

Beautiful house, fully equipped and spotlessly clean. The location is perfect, with easy access to a beautiful little bustling town. Plenty of car parks within a few minutes walk of the house and loads of gorgeous beaches within 20-30 minutes drive. Absolutely perfect!

Lovely Quirky Cottage In An Ideal Location..
booked a weeks stay to visit family in Plymouth , We used to live in Brixham so know Totnes well revisited lots of old haunts and met up with old friends , we found the cottage had everything you could need and more a nice touch was a bottle of wine left for our arrival plus milk in the fridge . Gail gave lots of information and was very communicative - we would love to stay again.
We love regulars and you are more than welcome to stay again
Totnes sits on the edge of the beautiful River Dart between Dartmoor and Dartmouth. It is splendid walking, cycling and touring countryside and is within 30 minutes drive to some great beaches e.g. Slapton and Blackpool Sands. The internationally renowned Dartington Hall and Schumacher College are within walking distance. There are many enchanting villages and historic sites to be visited in the locality and there is the Sharpham Vineyard famous for its wine and cheese. With a mainline railway station and excellent bus services, a car is not essential. The river provides many activities including ferry/cruise trips, sailing and canoeing courses and motor boat hire at nearby Dittisham. Or why not try the popular one-day Round Robin tour on a historic ferry or coal-fired paddle steamer, steam train and heritage bus in the surrounding area. Totnes is also a perfect base for trips further afield such as the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan. There are festivals, a variety of cultural activities and exciting courses in Totnes, Dartington Hall and Schumacher College. There are popular markets all year round and the Christmas markets are exceptional!
Totnes is a unique country town with a growing reputation worldwide as a Transition town - an inspirational model for community living. It even has its own currency! It has a vibrant atmosphere and is full of independent shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants. There are a number of market days with a variety of stalls including food, clothes, jewellery and an antique/flea market every Friday and Saturday, an Elizabethan market in the summer months and every third Sunday a famous food market. It is an arts hub with links nationally and internationally within the world of art, music, theatre, comedy and dance. There are many art galleries and craft shops to explore both in Totnes, nearby Dartington and Dartmouth.
Its history dates back to Saxon times and is overlooked by an imposing Norman Castle.There is so much to see - whether it is exploring the narrow, winding streets or visiting the historic Guildhall, the fashion and textile museum, Garden Trail or Agatha Christie's house at nearby Greenaway.
