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.
