'Annacombe' is a spacious and imaginative coachhouse conversion perfect for a child friendly escape for family, for friends or a romantic bolthole for two. The cottage is set in the grounds of a large country house in the beautiful countryside of the South Hams near south Devon's historic and buzzily-alternative town of Totnes. Lying not far from the river Dart, and between the sailing centres of Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe and the rugged wilderness of Dartmoor, it is an ideal base for exploring this unspoiled region with its excellent beaches, landscape and charming towns and villages. A whole array of inviting pubs and restaurants will tempt a break from self catering, and the attractions nearby - castles and country houses, adventure parks and children's farms, golf and riding, boating and sailing, sporting and fun - provide lots to do for children and adults alike.

The centre of the accommodation is dominated by the impressive, double-height, south facing living room with its gallery, open roof beams, natural stone fireplace, bookshelves, pottery and rugs. It is open plan with both a living and a dining area. The stylish fitted kitchen/breakfast room, with unusual granite work surfaces, is well equipped with dishwasher, fridge-freezer, microwave, induction hob and double-oven together with a breakfast table. A utility room houses the washing machine and tumble dryer, and the oil-fired boiler. On the other side of the living room, beyond a vestibule and third WC, is a ground floor double bedroom. Like the living room and kitchen, it overlooks the large cobbled courtyard belonging to the house. The en-suite bathroom has a bath, with thermostatically controlled shower above, WC and washbasin.

Upstairs, at either end of the living room gallery are two bedrooms, one with twin beds and a cot and the other with a double bed. Next door to the double bedroom is the second bathroom also fitted with a bath and thermostatically controlled shower above, WC and washbasin.

Outside, across the courtyard, two archways in its stone wall lead to an attractive, enclosed garden lawned and bordered by shrubs and climbers growing against the wall. There is ample parking for two or more cars.

The West Country region

South Devon is home to beautiful scenery and history and, as a popular destination for holidaymakers, masses to do. Dartmoor, in prehistoric times one of the most densely settled areas of Britain, is now a magnificent wilderness. The coastline, punctuated deeply by drowned river valleys is a maze of beaches, small coves and rocky shores. And in between are the lush greens of the farms, set amongst rolling fairy tale hills and dotted with villages and historic towns. And amongst these are the castles and country houses, adventure parks and golf courses, Canadian canoe trips and horse riding … and the excellent pubs and restaurants many selling the regions fresh fish, meat and produce. Here is a list of some of the National Trust and English Heritage sites and a couple of others not far over the border into Cornwall.
