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.

The space

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!

Guest access

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.

Biddy is an excellent host and on arrival greeted us and gave us a tour of the studio and its facilities. The bowl of fruit and delicious biscuits left for us was a lovely touch. The studio is very cosy, light and well equipped. Outside there is a table and chairs where you can sit in the sun with your morning coffee. It is in a perfect location, being only a few steps away from the very interesting town. Sadly, we could only stay for 3 nights but we plan to return asap. We would highly recommend this lovely studio. Thanks again, Biddy.

Biddy was a wonderful host - attentive and available if we needed anything but never imposing. The fresh fruit and biscuits were very much appreciated too. The location is perfect for exploring Totnes and the surrounding areas. Being able to sit outside in the beautiful garden reading the papers was a real treat. We'll certainly be heading back.

Centrally located with many things to see in the area. Biddy is a lovely host. Visiting by coach or rail is best since the county seems to discourage cars that stay for the day - parking can be a bigger challenge than one would expect for a smallish town.

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.
