Hidden away in it's own little valley close to The River Dart between Totnes and Dittisham is the village of Cornworthy, The Dart Valley Trail is easily accessible with lovely walks beside the river bank and surrounding woodland. The Hunters Lodge in the village is a well known pub, known amongst visitors and locals for good food. On the edge of the village standing alone in a field is the remains of the gatehouse to an Augustinian Priory dating from 1231.

"House suffered from internal dampness"

Stayed one night. relocated to another house in the village. It was November and raining, but there was a pervading smell of damp when entering house.Agent very helpful, but refused to refund price d… More

On visiting Shute Cottage on the guest's departure we found the property to be warm and cosy with no evidence of damp, mould or mildew. Earlier in the year considerable work was carried out in re-rendering both chimneys to eliminate a previous source of damp ingress. These areas had fully dried out but left a little discolouration. The Owners have now redecorated and following a meeting with them at the cottage we are satisfied that no dampness is evident
