Luxury cottage with stunning views

Located in: Totnes »
This new reverse level cottage has been designed to maximise space, peace and light. Enjoy the 12 mile views across fields, river and valleys to Dartmoor. Yet you are only a 15-20 minute walk from the castle, river, cafes and pubs of vibrant Totnes.

The Space
There is a fabulous living area on the first floor which at one end has a comfortable sitting and relaxing area with panoramic views through the end glass windows which also have a Juliet balcony. The fully equipped kitchen area is at the other end - with dishwasher, microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge, freezer and cooker. cooker - all for your sole use. There is a new Smart TV, wi-fi, and a modern lighting system with chandeliers and wall lighting. The sofa converts to a sofa bed should there be a need to accommodate more than 3 in a party. The house is well insulated and both floors have underfloor heating which maintains an ambient temperature - warmer during the day and cooler at night. In cold months or if you just fancy something different, there is a wood burning stove.
On the ground floor are the 2 bedrooms, the large main bedroom with large bed from 2 single beds with mattress topper which can be converted to twin beds on request. This bedroom has superb views across the garden, valley and to Dartmoor beyond. The smaller bedroom with a single bed is light and airy and and faces the courtyard. There is a modern shower/bathroom on the ground floor.

Guest Access
The Garden Cottage is completely your own. There is a garden and a courtyard, table and chairs for al fresco eating. There is a gas BBQ available if you want to use it but its worth saying Totnes is a foodie heaven eg the Curator, Riverford Farm Kitchen (booking ahead advised). We have written our own guide to good places for lunch an dinner, as well as walks, beaches and coves in the South Hams.

'House Rules'
Sorry we are unable to accommodate pets. There are wonderful plants in the garden so it is not suitable for ball games. The Garden House is no smoking but if you want to smoke you are welcome to use the lower lawn. We do not allow parties or large gatherings.To protect the oak flooring please leave outdoor shoes inside the front door You might want to bring some house shoes/slippers.

Interaction with Guests
The owners, John and Suzanne, and sometimes their daughters Danielle and Naomi, live in the main house in the grounds and are available to give advice. We hope our guests have an interesting and pleasurable stay and we can give ideas about good places to visit, local beaches, wild swimming, fantastic walks to suit all abilities, and we also leave this information in an information folder. We give our guests maps of Totnes so you can explore this historic 15th Century Elizabethan town. On the other hand if you are coming for peace and quiet we will respect your privacy. We like to be here when you arrive to show you the Garden House and give you keys. If you are coming by train its usually best to get a taxi from the station.

We always provide the ingredients for a continental breakfast for the first morning, milk, tea, coffee and fruit.

The Neighbourhood
This is a very quiet neighbourhood in a road with large turn of the century houses and gardens. There is easy parking for vehicles in Jubilee Road below the house and room for one medium sized car to park up in front of the Garden Cottage. We are situated on the edge of town up a farily long hill next to unspoilt countryside, but within a 10/15 minute walking distance of Totnes. Its a 5 minute drive to town car parks, if you either can't manage or don't fancy the hill on the way back.
