About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 bathroom.

This beautiful Georgian house is located only 3-4 minutes walk from the centre of the fun and quirky town of Totnes, yet set in a lovely quiet area just over the old bridge, this is our wonderful family home. It has a pub close by serving food which also boasts its own brewery. A corner shop is a 1 minute walk away open from 5am-10pm which has everything you could need and some lovely locally produced organic products with a local bakery and farm shop delivering daily.

For those who like to go out on an evening with the town being so close you will find a variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants all within a short walk.

The house itself is very large and extremely deceptive looking, similar to Dr Who’s Tardis !!. The layout of the house is amazing with a really good feel to all the rooms. Please feel free to use DVD's, access Netflicks and play with the games. Feel free to use anything from the pantry but please replace.

The property has a big lounge with a wood burner for those chilly nights, another large room, located straight off the lounge and a beautiful family kitchen which has only recently been refitted. The kitchen has a large range cooker great for preparing family meals which can be enjoyed around the large kitchen dining table. The kitchen has French doors which lead into the small yet very private rear courtyard garden.

On the top floor there is a lovely kingsize bedroom with an en suite shower room. The first floor has a super king size or twin bedded room (the bed is a zip and link let us know which you would prefer), a double room and a small double bedded room. All the rooms are bright and spacious with a lovely ambience. A beautiful and extremely large bathroom is located just off the landing close to all these rooms.

A private car parking space for 1 vehicle is included in a private car park at the rear of the property.

About Jess

My name is Jess. I am originally from Yorkshire but have settled in lovely Totnes. I love; live music, travelling, cultural cinema, friends, my boys. I like people and laughing at myself along with others looking at the funny side of life.

Jess purchased this house in 2009

Why Jess chose Totnes

The South Hams is the hidden treasure of Devon. Totnes is an amazing town with easy access to some of the some beautiful beaches and incrediable walking enviroments, coast paths and moor.

The house has has an incrediable tranquil feel to it and set in a lovely neighbourhood 2 minutes walk from the centre of town and the river, yet still beautifully quite.

What makes this house unique

No need for use of your car on a night out as the town has everything you need. All within a short walk 2 -3 minute walk; bars, cafes, restaurants, and lots of opportunity to see live music.

Beautiful house, modern, clean, big and airy

  • 5 of 5

The house is like a Tardis, 8 people could fit comfortably. It's modern, beautifully clean, felt like home from home without the clutter. Had everything you could need. Quiet location just over the river from the historical main town. Very central location. We all enjoyed our stay here including 4 children aged 9 - 17 years and our dog.

Quirky but lovely

  • 4 of 5

A lovely if somewhat quirky house supplied with everything you could need including a wonderful bath. Situated in a great location within an easy walk of a supermarket, restaurants/cafes, the town, the river for walks or a fabulous boat trip. If you wanted to you could leave the car and explore on foot or use this as a base to explore the rest of south Devon.

Lovely characterful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely spacious house. The lounge was so cosy with its wood burning fire. The kitchen was also a fantastic place to cook and eat. There was just two of us so we had the choice of bedrooms. The bathroom has a wonderful deep slipper bath. We were unable to enjoy the courtyard garden because the weather was quite rainy but we appreciated looking out to it. Jess was extremely helpful prior to our visit giving us some information about places to go. All recommendations were excellent.

Although being on a busy'ish road which is something we are not used to, the location is excellent for exploring Totnes, the Dart River and of course the charming high road with its interesting mix of shops. We really enjoyed our time and think that Totnes is an ideal place to explore all the highlights of the area.

Excellent, home from home for us

  • 5 of 5

This is a nicely presented 'family home' in Totnes one of my favourite towns.

The location was excellent

-- for quirky shopping

-- for our dog with nearby riverside walks

-- for grandson, as he loves steam trains

-- for nearby river swimming

-- for easily accessible beaches

We were keen on the wilder beaches on the south hams, a bit more difficult to get to on narrow country lanes but once there we were sheltered and uncrowded.

An amazing stay in this beautiful house.

  • 5 of 5

I was thrilled with my recent stay in this property. It more than met my expectations. The house was large, airy and bright with a beautiful feel to it. The kitchen was very large with a great dining table and was well equipped with everything we could have needed. The lounge was beautiful and comfy, it was too warm for the wood burner but I bet its great on a cold evening. All the bedrooms were bright and really comfortable; the en suite in the top bedroom was fantastic. The house bathroom was huge and again it was another beautiful room. Outside there is a lovely private courtyard garden. The house was close to the town centre yet remains lovely and quiet, everything we could have wanted was on our doorstep. The property was well placed for everything Devon has to offer and we had some amazing walks and visited some beautiful beaches. It was amazing on an evening we did not use the car once, it was 2 or 3 minutes walk to great restaurants and pubs.

The whole experience exceeded our expectations and will definitely be booking again for a longer holiday.

The district known as the South Hams is one of the most beautiful areas in Devon, and the thriving town of Totnes is the jewel in its crown. Positioned on a hill that slopes down to the River Dart, Totnes is surrounded by rich and inspiring countryside.

The river, one of several interesting waterways in the area, is home to a wide range of birds and animals. This diversity includes little egrets, cormorants, kingfishers, grey seals and the elusive otter.

Ideally situated between Dartmoor and the sea, Totnes is a perfect base from which to explore South Devon. Though located in the very rural South Hams, it is only a short distance from the more metropolitan attractions of Torbay, the county town of Exeter and the famous seaport of Plymouth.
