Ideally located in private lane, surrounded by stunning countryside scenery. House is large, light and roomy with beautiful grounds and option of breakfasting in these luscious surroundings. All amenities located within walking distance of house.
Large double bedroom with patio doors opening onto garden with exclusive use of toilet and shower.
An additional single bed can be added at an extra charge of £10 per night but only suitable for a child.

Guests will have exclusive access to large double bedroom, own separate shower/toilet and garden area outside of room.
Interaction with guests
We are a friendly, welcoming family, with 2 children of secondary school age and 1 away at University, living in a large 5 bedroom house, and would like to make use of the spare space.
We enjoy having guests, and often have family and friends over for barbeques during the summer months. Our lives tend to revolve around the children and work commitments.
We all tend to be early risers and so in turn are early to bed, so probably will not be the best place to stay if you want to go out clubbing, but if you want to enjoy the area from a comfortable friendly family home then it’s ideal.
Totnes, a unique and charming market town, sits in the heart of South Devon and has an international reputation for its lively and diverse community. Its high street is almost unique in its abundance of independent shops, and lively indoor and outdoor markets. If you’re looking for a holiday that combines history, alternative therapies and breathtakingly beautiful countryside, you’ll find it in Totnes.
The famous Dartington Hall and Estate is nearby and hosts many cultural events throughout the year as well as offering magnificent walks in its vast and tranquil grounds.
By car you can be at the beach in 20mins or Totnes and the train station in 7mins. The station is on the main London to Penzance line. We also have a regular bus route from the village running to Totnes and around the South Hams, and also to Exeter.
The village has a shop and a petrol station open until 6pm and 9pm respectively.
Totnes town has a variety of restaurants, eateries, and coffee shops. Most serve food in the evening, and cater for vegetarian and vegan diets, and other dietary requirements. The important matter of food sourcing is often stated – almost as a matter of pride.
Ideally you would drive to the house, however if you are coming by train we could pick you up at Totnes train station, there are regular bus routes to and from the village, and several bus and train routes out of Totnes.
Other things to note
