The Experience

In the heart of higgledy-piggledy Totnes you’ll be welcomed by Bethan and John with your own floor and the use of a sunny sitting room. Breakfast is served when you wake – home-baked bread, fresh juice and compotes using fruit from the garden, a full English if you want.

The big garden has plenty of hidden corners you’re encouraged to explore and includes three small ponds and flower beds where wildflowers are allowed to romp. Behind a stone wall is a vegetable and fruit garden where priority is given to produce that is good to pick at and eat raw.

It’s a short walk to Totnes’ high street, weekend markets, independent shops and restaurants. A half hour drive south gets you to sandy beaches for walking, swimming and surfing; the same distance west and you’re on Dartmoor.

A wonderfully kind relaxing stay with quiet, kind hosts who were very caring. Felt I was on a retreat it was so peaceful. The bed was very comfortable - , fabled breakfast lived up to its reputation and the garden was intriguing with lots of seating and appropriate hand rails. I hope to re visit some day and shall definitely recommend No 7 to friends and wish Bethan and John every happiness in their future.

Janet, Halifax

An absolute gem of a find. Centrally located for exploring lovely Totnes and surrounding area. Situated in a very peaceful area near the main high street. The accommodation is very spacious, clean and warm. John and Bethan are wonderful hosts and breakfast was exceptional !! Homemade breads, jams from their own produce, freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit and a cooked breakfast to follow. Highly recommend this B&B.

Andrea, Truro

Right in the centre of the old town, yet sublimely quiet, John and Bethan are very welcoming and generous hosts. Breakfast was delicious with a wide range of fruit and home made bread. The large garden is a haven of calm with views of the hills enclosing the town. The bedroom and adjoining sitting room are delightfully furnished and well set up with refreshments in the shape of a wide and welcoming variety of teas.

Stella, Southampton

Thank you for exceptional hospitality. Felt nourished by the detail and care - lovely breakfast and good sleep. Will be back.

Claire and Julia, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire

John and Bethan are delightful hosts and gave such a warm welcome. I particularly liked the generous size room which combined the bedroom and comfortable sitting area.

The neighbourhood

You’re on a quiet road parallel to the high street’s fine Tudor buildings and a multitude of independent shops and restaurants. Take a picnic up to Totnes Castle for panoramic views or walk down to the Dart, cross the old bridge and walk further along the flat path beside the river to Longmarsh. You can also walk up the Dart to the old train station, have a coffee at the Rare Breeds Farm and watch the steam trains come in and out; further up are the open fields and many paths of the Dartington Hall estate.

Local points of interest from Bethan Edwards & John Paige

  • In the centre of a thriving market town, which is both alternative and historic, from the B and B you can easily explore the many independent shops and the busy week-end markets. In the evening, walk out to eat in the many cafes and restaurants.
  • Walk along the River Dart.Follow the Dart downstream to the Sharpham Estate, famous for its cheese and wine, and tour the vineyard. Upstream, walk to Dartington Hall with its newly opened Deer Park, lovely gardens and delicious food at The Green Table.
  • Travel back in time on the South Devon Steam Railway. Break your journey at Staverton with a walk by the river or, particularly, if there are any children in the party, call in at the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm to feed the animals and stroke a guinea pig!
  • All the way to Dartmoor, there are many places for wild swimming. At high tides, cruises run up and down the river to Dartmouth, with a link to another steam railway. The famous River Dart seal may also be spotted from the town bridge or Vire Island.
  • Ten minutes walk from the Grove,Totnes Castle towers above the town. It will allow you panoramic views and a great place for a summer picnic. In the High Street, the Brutus Stone marks the place a Roman general, allegedly, first set foot in Britain.
  • Totnes is the capital of the South Hams, an AONB. Thirty minutes to the south are spectacular beaches and cliffs, perfect for walking, swimming and surfing. Thirty minutes to the west is Dartmoor, open moorland studded with granite tors.


Bethan Edwards & John Paige

Having enjoyed staying in B&Bs in the past and wanting to be at home more while their son was growing up, Bethan and John decided to turn one floor of their house into accommodation for guests. Their aim is to make their guests feel welcome, comfortable and well-fed - they consider the food they provide at breakfast to be as important as a good night's sleep and space to relax in. They both love working in the garden and love it when guests take advantage and sit awhile, enjoying the space and quiet in the middle of a busy town.
