The West Country region

The cottage is situated in the South Hams area of Devon known as 'an area of outstanding beauty'. Its position is in the conservation area of the village of Harbertonford which lies along side the main A381 between Totnes and Kingsbridge. This makes the cottage an ideal base for exploring Devon. The National Trust coastal path and beaches are about 10 miles away and the National Park of Dartmoor is approximately 10 miles in the opposite direction.

The climate is changeable but during the summer there are many very warm comfortable beach days. The winter can be milder but wetter than the East side of England because of the prevailing South Westerly winds which generally come across from the Atlantic bringing rain but very rarely ever snow.


Totnes is always a busy place especially in the main street called Fore Street which has many very interesting locally owned shops and some lovely tea rooms and cafes. There is a small castle and museum. When the tides are right boat trips from Dartmouth go up and down the River Dart and stops are made at Agatha Christie's house (Now a National Trust property). There are also many other National Trust properties in the South Devon and East Cornwall area which can be easily visited from the cottage

The towns of Paignton and Goodrington will keep children amused during the summer holidays with special days on the fronts.

Many local towns and villages have their festivals and fetes including Harbertonford which has one every July. There are some lovely pubs to try with good food. The cottage is five miles form Dartington Hall where the annual 'Ways with Words' week takes place where many famous celebrities come and give a talk. There are many regattas throughout the summer months in various sea side towns including Torquay and Dartmouth.

The city of Plymouth is only 35 minutes with its large shopping centre and many restaurants. The Barbican area is especially worth a visit. As Plymouth is a naval port going right back to the times of Sir Francis Drake there is plenty to see. There are many activities on the famous Plymouth Hoe in the Summer months including the very popular two day international firework competition held in full view of Plymouth Hoe every mid-August. There is also the modern Theatre Royal which has many good productions throughout the year and also the Pavilions which has well known comedians and other celebrities visitng regularly.

Exeter City is only 40 minutes away with its Cathedral which is certainly worth a visit with its wonderful architecture including the exceptional fan vaulting ceiling and Bishop's throne. There is also a very good recently refurbished museum and a good shopping area which has all the usual named shops to be found in most cities.
