We had a great stay in Totnes, It was a lovely decorated home, plenty of space. The garden looks beautiful. We had a warm welcome from the host. Very friendly and keen to give any advise about the area and where to have a great meal.
A great place to venture out on the moors or go to the seaside. Don't forget to go to Totnes. They have great speciality shops you don't see everywhere else. Suitable for families with school going children.

Everything was absolutely perfect. The accommodation is actually nicer than the pics show. The garden is absolutely beautiful. Susy, the owner, ever so welcome. She left a nice card and a bottle of wine to welcome us. The place is spotless, very clean and comfortable. Even the bed linen was gorgeous and crisp. I wanted to book for another weekend straight away. Sadly, it was fully booked. But I will go back.

We stayed at the Glencoe Coach House in July 2011 with 2 teenage girls. The house and grounds were beautifully maintained and the location was close to Totnes town centre and 10 minutes drive from Paignton. The bedrooms were a great size, especially for teenage girls who packed too much stuff! The house had maintained many of the original features while still providing all the modern comforts we expect.
Although we were out and about during the day we enjoyed sitting out in th garden in the evening and we made good use of the barbeque.
The owner, Susy was extremely welcoming and made us feel very at home.
We would definitely stay there again.
