Hello, we arrived late at night and very tired, the directions could have been a bit clearer.. overall we really loved the house. Film of character, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location is perfect. We’d definitely go back! Blue River were very helpful with the last minute booking, thank you.

Mrs Lucinda R,

Cute cottage. Great central location.

John H,

Our third stay, mid-Winter and mid-Summer. A very comfortable cottage, warm in Winter, cool in Summer, tucked away just off the top of the lively High Street, but very quiet and secluded itself. Easy walking to all town facilities, pubs, shops, restaurants. Convenient for Dartmoor, coast, countryside, as well as Exeter and Plymouth. Cottage is exceptionally well equipped. Blue River offer an exceptional service, far superior to other agencies we have experienced.

Roger B,

Middle Cottage is a beautiful holiday cottage and ideally situated in Totnes - very close to the High Street yet also very quiet - like a country cottage! Beautiful living space and the main bedroom and en suite are wonderful. The third bedroom is really ideal for one person but ok for two who don't mind sharing a small space and no storage space. Overall a really wonderful stay!
