I live in a lovely terraced cottage in a very pretty street 5 minutes walk from the middle of Totnes, with my 10 year old daughter and two cats. We have a 3 bedroom house with a lovely garden. I love rural crafts and weave life size willow animals and bee skeps. We both love the countryside and my daughter is mad about horses and goes riding at the local stables in Staverton. Totnes is an incredibly interesting medieval town with a very rich history and is quite bohemian. It is also next to the River Dart (5 minutes from our house) where you can take river boat rides to neighbouring villages. We are only 20 minutes drive from Dartmoor National Park and 40 minutes from many interesting and varied beaches. I

The SpaceAlthough just a few minutes walk from the centre of the bustling market town of Totnes, Garden Cottage is hidden away down a quiet street with no through traffic and the loudest sound is usually the birds in the trees. There is a private parking space and then you approach the cottage through its private and very sunny garden. Totnes is a fantastic base to explore South Devon.

The SpaceThe houses on Huxham's Cross were built for the workers on Dartington Estate in the early part of last century. Our home is only a walk away to Dartington Hall through beautiful woods. Go through the same woods to swim in the river, cycle down to Totnes (and discover a high street and market bustling with energy) or enjoy a coffee in the cool Staverton nursery cafe. We're also a walk away from the steam train which takes you to the Otter and Butterfly Sanctuary in Buckfastleigh and the Rare Breeds Farm in Totnes. Both great days out for the family. If you feel like staying at home there's a big garden to relax in, with a large trampoline, a slide and a hammock for those lazy days in the sun. You'll be bathed in birdsong as well as sunshine. The cabin at the end of the garden is private and can not be used during your stay. Guest AccessYou'll have access to full wifi connection in the house. We do not own a TV so please make sure you bring a laptop or ipad if you would like to watch things. There is one kingsize bedroom, one single or twin bedroom (depending on what is required) and one childrens bedroom ( with a small child's bed). We have lots of musical instruments to share: a piano, keyboard, guitar, drums, lots of percussion, and plenty of toys for smaller children, including an all time favourite- a lovely wooden rocking horse. There's also plenty of books to choose from if you fancy snuggling up on the couch for a quiet night in. The bathroom is a bit old school with only a bath, sink and toilet - no shower. But there is hot water at any time you want. The NeighborhoodDartington is well known for its art college which brought a bohemian feel to the area. Although the art and music college has moved on, the dartington hall estate and gardens is an area of unquestionable beauty. Talking of beauty, a 10 minute drive will take you to the edge of Dartmoor National Park which is famous for its ancient sites and mystical feel, as well as stunning landscapes. We have a book on Dartmoor walks for your use. A 40 minute drive in the other direction takes you to some of the most spectacular beaches in the country. My favourite is Blackpool sands. We have a guidebook on all the beaches of the area for your use too. Getting AroundThere is parking outside the house, around the green. We are 10 minutes for totnes train station, and on the bus route from Totnes to Buckfastleigh. Other Things to NoteWe don't own a TV but there's a desktop computer in the twin room which plays DVDs ( please bring your own DVDs).

The SpaceOur home is very much your home. We want you to feel completely at ease and enjoy the peaceful and relaxed yet vibrant energy that runs through Totnes and our house through all the years of yoga and meditation we've done here! This home is in the very heart of the beautiful Transition Town of Totnes with bridle paths and long walks stretching way into the distant hills only seconds away. The river Dart is also just a stones throw down the road from our doorstep where you can enjoy the use of our kayaks and canoe to explore some of the most famously beautiful stretches of river in Europe. Some of the greatest beaches are also just a short drive away (we'll let you in on all the best secret beaches!) and Dartmoor, the largest piece of undisturbed ancient land in England is also close by Enjoy lovely sunsets from our big windows with a cup of tea or make use our courtyard garden with barbeque and garden furniture if it's a nice evening. The spacious living room faces due South so is very sunny and bright. Full wifi access, with a pull-out flat 27" iMac to watch movies of your choice on the big corner sofa. We've also got a large 7ft table which could seat (and has!) up to 12 people around. The main bedroom has an enormous double king size organic bed with natural organic brushed cotton linen in every room to help you fall into the most comfortable sleep of your life! The house stays warm and dry and is good for anybody suffering from asthma, although worth mentioning that we have a dog, who comes with us when we let the house!(And lives downstairs, away from bedrooms.) The second double bedroom next to the main one has a bunkbed that can be used by adults or children. Again is warm, south facing, and inviting. It may not look exactly as the picture here as my son does move his furniture occasionally, but will have 2 beds all the same! The third room is a small cosy single room overlooking the rooftops of Totnes, and the nesting seagulls, it is a peaceful room. The house has a main bathroom (bath with shower) and another toilet downstairs. The accomodation is offered as self service, but we'd be happy to get some well sourced local food in before or during your stay if you'd like, (I recommend Riverford, for both locally delivered food, and eating out at the field kitchen at Staverton.) and will leave a guide of the area, and menus from local restaurants for you to leaf through. If you have any queries do get in touch. Thanks for your enquiry! Katie Guest AccessEverything but the attic!

Well behaved dogs welcome and there are fantastic dog walks right on the doorstep. The NeighborhoodI have travelled extensively all over the world and lived in many different places. Totnes is the most effective and generous community we've ever come across, our lives are rich and brimming with life! With so much on our doorstep to explore still, even living here for 10 years, there is still so much more to discover. It's just beautiful. Getting AroundYou can walk everywhere within Totnes as we're right in the middle of town. You can also walk or bicycle to Dartington or Sharpham alongside ancient wild river pathways. A regular bus service runs from just around the corner, with services to Paignton, Torbay, Dartmouth and Plymouth, and trains from Totnes station go regularly to everywhere in the country (2.5-3hrs to/from London). If you want to explore further into the west country you could get a Devon and Cornwall rail card which could save you a lot. On travel down here! And of course plenty of air b&b hosts around Cornwall too! Totnes is roughly 20 minutes from both the sea and the moor, so If you choose to bring or hire a car, it is really easy to get to some incredible places! But there are buses that can also take you through the gorgeous countryside out to popular and lovely beaches and walks, of attractions. There is so much to do and see, and also to relax with, you may even want to come back! Other Things to NoteSend us an email if you have any questions, look forward to seeing you x x x

The SpaceThis apartment is part of the last house in the village with only fields beyond and is very quiet. The loudest sound is usually the whistle from the local steam railway over a mile away. However BT Infinity fast broadband has just arrived & there's pretty good mobile reception (for Devon) so you won't be completely cut off! The apartment is completely self-contained with its own entrance and has a good-sized bright bedroom/studio with a table and chairs, a small kitchen area (with sink, fridge, kettle, toaster, tea and coffee making and a gas cooker with hob and oven), a bathroom (with bath and thermostatically controlled shower) and an entrance hall area with space to hang coats.
