Fiona S,

A warm (cool in hot weather!) very well equipped cottage in an excellent location. Minutes from Totnes High Street, unique pubs, shops and restaurants, and station on main line and steam railway. We have now stayed there several times. Parking on private frontage right outside front door ideal.

Roger B,

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,
