Location description from owner

The England region

Devon is a popular holiday destination in South West England, luring visitors for years and the South Hams region is the southernmost part of Devon situated between the River Dart and the River Tamar and the south of Dartmoor.

The coast and countryside are still extraordinary beautiful, which is why more than two thirds of South Devon is carefully protected as a national asset, either in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or as part of Dartmoor National Park. Dramatic Dartmoor gives way to rolling hills, wooded valleys and stunning coastline that never fails to leave visitors wishing they could stay just that little bit longer.

Whether you spend your days in markets towns and quaint villages that retain their tradition whilst now offering fine dining and excellent shopping or spend the days playing and swimming on one of Devon’s blue chip beaches, or simple walking across the Moor, stopping at some wonderful pubs – you won’t want to leave!

West Country

Totnes is a wonderful town and has a reputation for being one of the most diverse and creative towns in the country. Heritage and culture are the main attractions and it’s even been voted as one of the ten funkiest town in the world in a survey of travel writers.

It’s located on the banks of the beautiful River Dart and nestles between the rolling hills of the South Hams, an Area of Outstanding Beauty. The town is steeped in history and was once the capital of the South West of England. It’s a transition town, and famed for having its own currency and is fiercely proud of the independent high street shops and cafes (no Costa here!!). Local produce is everywhere with local butcher, Green grocers and a Riverford shop. Music is everywhere from the Barrel House to the main street, everything you could want, all within walking distance of Holly Cottage.

Further afield you could enjoy the riverside villages such as Tuckenhay and Dittisham, Asprington and Stoke Gabriel. Take the river boat along the Dart during the summer and stop off at ‘Greenway’ the home of Agatha Chrisite. Or carry onto the yachting ports of Dartmouth or Salcombe.

Walkers are spoilt with the National Park of Dartmoor a short distance away, the South West Costal Path or simply walking along the River Dart and finding yourself in a vineyard having a wonderful lunch, at the amazing Dartington Hall and Cider Press, the Sharpham Wine & Cheese estate or many of the traditional pubs that hug the river.

There are too many attractions for the children to mention here, adventure parks, farms, acres of sandy beaches for swimming or crabbing in Stoke Gabriel (whilst parents enjoy a cream tea), Devon Blue enables you to paint their own pottery and the Castle are just a very few of the things to do in this great area.

Holly Cottage is the perfect base for you to explore this wonderful area, it’s the perfect destination for holiday makers looking for an interesting, intriguing and fascinating holiday that is close to some of the best beaches in the UK and the famous National Park of Dartmoor.

“Wonderful Property”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2013

Had a great time staying at Holly Cottage in Totnes. Only a short walk away from the top of the High Street with all the interesting and quirky shops and places to eat. The cottage backs onto the Castle slopes, with a lovely upstairs conservatory that looks out over it. The cottage was really comfortable and well appointed with everything supplied, including a welcome hamper with bread, butter, milk, free range eggs and a bottle of wine. Lovely kitchen - diner with a large cooker and all the equipment needed and plenty of space. The living room was much larger than the photo implied with tv, comfy sofa and open fire with logs ready to go. Upstairs the two bedrooms were roomy and really comfortable and relaxing. We would rate this property very highly and recommend it, especially with it's unique view of the castle from the conservatory.
