“An unforgettable week”

Reviewed 28 Feb 2013

The house was perfect for us - we stayed with my two daughters aged 10 and 14 and there was absolutely nothing to fault it. During our week there we discovered Totnes, which is a great town, with plenty to do. We went to the market, we listened to music at the Barrel House, we took a boat trip down the river to Dartmouth... We spent a couple of days on the beach at Thurlstone, where my daughters learnt to surf (there is a very good surfing school) and my partner and I went on long treks along the cliffs.
