Location description from owner

The England region

Visit South Devon and you'll find that there is more to this spectacular and diverse area than you might have thought. In addition to beautiful beaches and stunning scenery, you'll find Dartmoor National Park, rustic villages and towns, historic buildings and ruins, extreme sports and the best in food and drink. Stretching from Torbay to the outskirts of Plymouth, the coastline is one of many moods and has been defined as a Heritage Coast. It ranges from sheltered hidden coves to the jagged cliffs of Bolt Head and from the long golden expanses of Slapton Sands to the cool, tree-shaded serenity of the Dart and Kingsbridge estuaries, some of Britain's finest ria coastline.

Staverton

The area around Totnes is stunning with unspoilt walks along the River Dart and up to the historic Staverton Bridge and Devon Steam Railway Station. Totnes with its castle and excellent specialist arts and crafts shops is within easy reach and can be visited via the Devon Steam Railway trains which run directly from Staverton into Totnes.

The River Dart which lends its name to Dartmouth, Dartmoor, Dartington and Dartmeet is on our doorstep. The national park of Dartmoor is but a stones throw away with local historical buildings such as Buckfast Abbey and the renowned Dartington Hall. Superbly located for exploring the English Riviera with Torquay/Paignton being only a 15-20 minute drive away, Blackpool Sands, Dartmouth Harbour, Salcombe and Kingsbridge to name but a few are all within easy reach. The list is endless.

Being close to the stunning Devon coast opens up not only the chance to walk a part of the beautiful and awe-inspiring Southwest Coastal Footpath but offers fishing both onshore and off one of the many wrecks that litter our shoreline. The wild and rugged Dartmoor National Park is minutes away and offers walking for all ages and abilities. Again fishing is available on many of its calm and peaceful reservoirs but permits may be required.

Our cottage is an ideal base for exploring the English Riviera and Darmoor National Park, Staverton is perfectly situated and an ideal base to tour this beautiful part of the South West .
