About this listing

Exclusive use of the Chalet set in a peaceful location with superb views of the surrounding countryside, 10min from Totnes. A comfortable place to relax, an ideal base to explore the coast, Dartmoor & the alternative culture of Totnes. With access to our secluded garden (with optional hot tub @£25/day).

The space

Situated in a secluded garden with it’s own entrance from the Devon lane and adjacent the open countryside, the timber chalet has an unusual and beautiful design, with stained glass, interestingly shaped windows, wooden floors and walls in natural oil finish.
Sitting comfortably in the large lounge/diner, looking over the Dart valley towards Dartmoor and at Hood Ball (one of the local hills, an ancient volcanic plug), visitors report feeling touched by a sense of relaxation and peace.
The rest of the accommodation comprises: a galley style kitchen, a bathroom with a lovely shower and a double and a twin bedroom.
The owner's cottage is close by so info and help is available if needed. We have our own borehole water supply which is UV treated (and so unchlorinated) and really delicious to drink.
Please note the hot tub (currently outside on the lawn) is available at an extra £25/day for your exclusive use (min 2 days and pre-booking is essential at the time of initial accommodation enquiry). We use oxygen based water treatment.

Restful stay I had a lovely stay at the chalet with my husband and step son, it’s a very restful place with everything we needed. We had a few family friends over one evening and there is plenty of space in the lounge for several people to have something to eat. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment and the shower is excellent, easy to use. I think we did feel the larger of the two rooms would be better suited to being the double room, (though I understand it can be used as a twin room) my step son had a lot of room whereas we were a little cozy. But having said that we would be very keen to return. The garden is lovely, a great space to relax in, with a fire pit if you wanted to some l fresco dining. It is a very private space but you may see the owners husband walking through as he uses the caravan to the left of the property, this didn’t bother us in the slightest though. All in all, I’d really recommend it for somewhere different to stay at get away from it all. There is wifi, but the TV only works for DVD’s – again we actually found this to be a bonus.

The garden house is a unique place set within a lovely landscape. Perfectly quiet! The Dartmoor, Exeter and other places along the coast are easily accessible. We've got excellent advices of our host where to go best which was much appreciated! All communications went well and the description how to find the place have been very helpful. If you're looking for the ordinary this place wouldn't suit you. But otherwise: enjoy!

Perfectly situated and hosting was great. It was actually bigger than expected and the hot tub was great fun. We made a BBQ on the Saturday and was great fun. Lots to do around Dartington and Totnes.

This is such a cool place to stay. The space is ample, clean and calm. The beds are so comfortable. The outside space is lovely with a great hottub making it feeling like a real treat. We had a fire outside on Solstice night, magic. Olivia and Chris were very related, welcoming and respected our space and privacy.

We had a really great stay. Our hosts were kind, welcoming and accommodating; doing everything they could to make our stay a success. The chalet is in a really scenic spot, and a good point to explore this corner of Devon. A car is advised for staying here, although we enjoyed our walk into Totnes and to the Cott Inn. The hot-tub is a definite winner :)

Very basic accommodation. Heating wasn't on when we arrived and with no comfortable seating it wasn't the warmest of welcomes. Hot tub wasn't available/broken and fridge freezer had been turned off and leaked all over the floor. Hot water was erratic to say the least. Showers were near on impossible.
