About this listing
Stone built, single storey central, light, airy, secluded cottage. One large room with fitted kitchen area, sofa, double bed, folding single bed + travel cot. Separate shower room/wc/sink. DVD. Wifi. Use of garden shared with owner.
A beautifully light and airy studio flat with stripped wooden floors & vaulted ceiling with wooden beams. It is tucked away at the end of the owner's garden at the top of Totnes town centre, with all the independent shops, cafes, traditional markets on the doorstep. It is in a completely private location through a small alleyway which leads to a flowery cottage garden shared with the owner.
Most of the things you will need for a short or longer self catering stay such as washing machine, iron/ironing board, electric cooker/oven, TV/DVD, fridge and wifi are in the studio, where everything is for your exclusive use.
The studio is powered by electricity, which has a coin meter needing £1 and £2 coins.
Electricity is charged at the rate charged by the supplier (ie the same as I pay them).
I am a keen gardener and love plants, although this doesn't necessarily mean that the garden is as tidy as I'd like it to be!
You will have exclusive use of the studio and you are welcome to sit out in the garden which is shared with the owner - maybe use the BBQ?
Interaction with guests
I live in a house at the other end of the garden and am often at home during the day and evenings to help you with any queries. I will be there personally to hand over the keys. I have lived in this area my whole life and so have a wealth of information to impart about the town, beaches, the moors, local walks etc.
Other things to note
Electricity is supplied by meter which takes £1 coins and £2 coins. It is charged at the rate that I pay the supplier.
The maximum length of stay is 4 weeks.
Please smoke in the garden and use the ash tray. Cat-friendly pets are welcome by prior negotiation. Please tidy up any mess your dog makes in the garden.

I work mainly from home sewing. I am also a part time carer for people with disabilities in their own homes. I enjoy gardening, cooking, country walks and being by the sea. I like guests who are independent and want to enjoy the quiet ambience.
