Space 550 sq ft

About the property

Situated on the east side of the River Dart with the town centre only a 10 to 15 minute walk away, the bungalow enjoys lovely views over the town and countryside to Dartmoor in the distance. As an alternative to walking into town there is a local bus service which can be boarded immediately outside of the bungalow on weekdays.

The bungalow has its own driveway affording off-road parking alongside a small lawn to the front while to the rear there is a more secluded larger garden which is a lawn and patio area with garden seating.

Inside is bright, airy and of a modern style. An entrance hallway leads into the kitchen and lounge area. The bathroom comprises of bath with shower, basin and W.C. There are 2 bedrooms; a single and a double and a 4th person can be accommodated via a folding bed (zed-bed),which can be used in the single bedroom or in the living room. The double bedroom has French windows leading onto the patio.

Heating is by gas central heating.

Totnes has a wealth of history behind it with its Castle and Clock Tower (the East Gate) being prominent features of the town.

It also has a character and feel all of its own, much of which is due to the influence of the students of Dartington College of Arts of the more recent past. Indeed, nearby Dartington Hall and gardens are well worth a visit.

The town is well known for its unique, independent shops and also has plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs to choose from.

As well as being a charming, historically rich town, Totnes is also a route centre having good connectivity to the rest of South Devon and the larger centres of Torbay, Plymouth and Exeter. The A38 dual-carriageway from both Exeter and the M5 motorway and continuing to Plymouth and on into Cornwall is only 6 miles away, and the main railway to the southwest also serves the town.

A wonderful stay in Ian's home in Totnes

  • 5 of 5

I have just spent an extended stay with my two adult daughters (6 weeks in total) and I would thoroughly recommend this comfortable, modern house within a ten minute walk in to town. Ian is a lovely, warm host who is around if needed but unobtrusive otherwise. We have been here in December and January and the house has remained warm and cosy throughout all weathers! The area is residential - and really quiet, with a corner shop close by.

The house has been recently refurbished so everything feels clean, bright and modern. The kitchen has everything we have needed whilst here and the bedrooms have been spacious for the three of us. Ian and Jo kindly left some very welcome gifts and all the basics (cooking oil, salt & pepper, tea, coffee, cling film etc as well as some toiletries) in the kitchen and bathroom which was really useful and meant we could settle in straightaway. There are books, games and information on the area.

Totnes is a great location for exploring the area. Dartmouth, Brixham and Torquay are really close and Salcombe, Exeter, Plymouth and Dartmoor are all within 30-40 minutes. Totnes, itself, is great to wander around with lots of cafes and independent shops. From the house there are walks along the River Dart and the countryside surrounding the town.

I would happily recommend this house to family and friends.

The bungalow was fantastic. Very clean, well equipped and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We were made to feel very welcomed upon our arrival. The bungalow is a good size and ideal for a family stay. Very clean, well equipped and very cosy. It was a nice gesture to find milk in the fridge, wine and biscuits on the dining table and many leaflets on the activities and attractions in Devon. The area is quiet and friendly...we had a very relaxing stay and all the main attractions in the Torbay and surrounding areas are very accessible from here. Would definitely look to come back and stay here.

Lansdowne is a super place to stay.

Extremely well presented property very spacious light and welcoming. Wine, fruit, milk and biscuits plus fresh flowers and card an extra special touch. The property is in an ideal location for a walk into Totnes and exploring the beautiful coast and countryside. It was good to meet Ian and we would be delighted to stay here again in the future.

Great property in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We have returned from a lovely 4 night stay over the Easter bank holiday. Property is lovely and clean a real home from home. Lovely and quiet neighbourhood. It’s also fantastically located just 2 minutes from supermarket (Morrison’s) and high street. Great for visiting Torquay, paignton and local attractions. Owners are lovely and it was nice to arrive to a bottle of wine a lovely card and Easter chocolates. We will definitely be back.
