“Full of Character, Clean & Homely”
Reviewed 6 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed as a party of 10 (6 adults and 4 children/young adults aged 10-16) for a long weekend, while attending a family wedding at nearby Dartington Hall.

The house is situated approximately 5-10 minute stroll to Totnes town centre. It is located on a fairly steep hill, away from the town centre, so it's great walking downhill, but it's a steep walk on the way back, especially if you have older people and children in your party. It has parking for 3-4 cars, but the drive is very narrow and steep.

The house itself is very clean, warm, has loads of character and we felt at home straight away. It has obviously always been a happy home.

It has every item of cutlery, plates, pans, cups, glasses that you can think of.

It has two bath/showers upstairs and a shower room downstairs.

If you are travelling in a large party, then this place is a great place to stay and a great base for Torquay, Paignton, Dartmouth etc.

We'll be back at some stage!

“Christmas stay”
Reviewed 2 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

I stayed with my family (including 2 young children) over Christmas and this house was a perfect choice. The house was very clean and was equipped with everything you'd ever need. It felt very homely and welcoming and we were really able to relax. The enormous lounge was great. There are 4 big bedrooms and one smaller one at the back of the house (belonging once to a servant I think!). It's on a quiet road and you can walk downhill into Totnes in around 10 minutes. There are lovely views of the surrounding area. The host is very friendly and accommodating. The only thing to be aware of is the very steep drive.

“Fantastic House”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed for a long weekend with family. There was a small technical hitch initially, which was very quickly resolved by the housekeeper.
The house is very large and the double / king beds are very comfy. Ample bathroom facilities.
The house was warm and there was plenty of hot water.
Nice garden with a little verandah you can sit under.
If you want a house with character, then stay here! Was within walking distance of the lovely town centre with its wonderful range of shops.
We would definitively go back!
