The space

All the house. including the decking area.

Getting around

There are plenty of buses and we are only 10 mins walk from the mainline train station. However, to get to the best bits of the coast and Dartmoor, a car is a must. For £5 (council admin cost), I can add you to our parking permit which allows you to park anytime in North Street car park and also any other long stay car parks in the South Hams. Just let me know your vehicle registration plate before you arrive.

Gillian went above and beyond to communicate with us before arrival, then stayed in touch on the day as we were late due to traffic. She then turned up just after we finally arrived and showed us round and gave us keys. A great host. The house is lovely too - in a fantastic location just behind the high street and short walk from most of the key spots in Totnes. Would definitely rent again if we come back to Totnes.

We had a lovely time in Totnes. Gillian was very helpful and made our stay extremely enjoyable. We especially enjoyed going for a bike ride one day! A great holiday in a lovely cottage.

Great cottage, well equipped and comfortable, right in the centre of Totness and with easy access to Dartmoor and the lovely Devon coast. Gillian was really helpful providing tons of information and tips - just wish we'd have been able to spend more time there!

Gillian has been very considerate from the time of booking to the end of my stay, with many tips and booklets which made my trip easier and pleasant. The cottage is lovely, fully equipped and well located in the center of Totnes, with easy access to Dartmoor and the sea.

My friends and I had the perfect stay at Gillian's cottage. We've all lived in Totnes previously and agree that the cottage is in the ideal location for both the town and the station. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay, including a wood burner and a great stereo for relaxed evenings in. The only thing about the cottage is that it doesn't get too much sun downstairs although the upstairs is light and airy, especially in the mornings. I'd recommend staying at Gillian's wholeheartedly, you'd have trouble finding a better place to stay in Totnes.
