Further details indoors

Hope Cottage is striking, you enter the courtyard through a Red Door in the white wall, opposite Fat Lemons Cafe. At this point you are in a peaceful and tranquil space although so close to the centre but quite and set back from the noise and bustle of the town. The cottage is perfectly located for all public transport train, bus or even boat as only 5 minutes from the Dart Ferry boat which takes you to all the places along the Dart to Dartmouth. A must in summer and stop off at 'Greenway' the home of Agatha Christie.

Beaches can be accessed easily by Bus or by Road. If you want a drive free holiday there is plenty of public transport to all the local places and beaches. Talk to the Tourist information office only 3 minutes from the cottage.

Further details outdoors

The Courtyard is accessed through the Red Door in the Wall. Opposite the cottage is Fat Lemons Cafe or the Ticklemore cafe. Both do excellent breakfasts and food throughout the day. The County Cheese shop (previously Ticklemore Cheese shop is two doors away and provides an array of the most wonderful local and regional cheeses you could wish for. Go in an have a tasting session. You are located a minute from the main street of Totnes or the river walk. The river walk is wonderful and provides you with a place to see local wildlife including otters and seals if you are lucky. Or just for an early evening stroll before sampling the food delights of Totnes.

It provide lush farmland, wooded valleys and rivers which turn into wonderful estuaries. The Beaches are wonderful and well preserved and discover little coves which can be a perfect spot for a day on the beach. Wonderful walking through green fields along the sides of rivers and then arriving at a vineyard or the wonderful Dartington Hall and Cider Press. There a some lovely Pubs the Steam Packet where you can sit and have an evening drink or meal by the river is a must throughout the year.


There are plenty of things to do with Children, Devon Blue enables you to paint your own pottery (great cafe here). The Castle to explore, the Totnes Museum to experience the past, The Leech Wells and the crabbing.

(No Starbucks here). Local produce is everywhere with local Butchers, Green Grocers and Riverford shop. There is a supermarket (Morrisons). Music is everywhere from the Barrell house to the main street. everything you could want.

"Beautiful cottage in the heart of Totnes"

Well maintained cottage in the hub of Totnes town centre, ideally placed for your shopping and entertainment needs. Parking available which is a major plus for this town, although not at the cottage was not too far away. This was a great base to explore the Devon beauty spots. Would definitely go back to this lovely cottage again.
