The Experience

Down the hugger-mugger village street keeping a watch out for friendly locals then a tight turn takes you into what was the farmyard. Stone outdoor steps lead up to the former hayloft, now a neat-as-a-pin, south-facing bolthole with an open-plan living room and kitchen. The downstairs bedroom is sumptuous with a roll top bath and rainforest shower. Charlotte leaves you locally-grown goodies for breakfast and some of their homemade apple juice or cider.

Sit at a tiny bistro table on the sunny top step overlooking the flower-filled yard, or leave the stable door open for a sun-drenched supper at your dining table. Wander to two pubs and an award-winning shop which sells organic food and also has a café with homemade cakes.

Suggestions and some maps for local walks are waiting for you, including some lovely ones along the river Dart. Totnes is a 15-minute drive for independent clothes shops and a food market on Fridays and Saturdays.

Nicola, Sawday's Inspector

Wildflower Cottage is absolutely lovely and the owner Charlotte has thought of everything! We stayed for a 3-night break and loved the quality of everything in the cottage - the interiors of which has been designed with great style, and the welcome hamper including home made cider was a real treat too. We loved the pub Coppa Dolla which was a minute's walk away (we went twice!), and did the local 4-mile walk which Charlotte recommended and was perfect. The bed was so comfortable and the linen and towels were best hotel quality. Overall 5*+ & highly recommended!

Robert, London

A very spacious and well-appointed cottage, comfortable bed and so pleasing to return to after a day inspecting the lovely surrounding area. The owner was friendly, the welcome-pack generous and full of local produce, and the village pub/restaurant only a stroll away.. what more could we want?

Michael, Oswestry

Wildflower Cottage is a haven for rest and relaxation. The attention to detail and quality of finish far surpassed our expectations. David and Charlotte were fabulous hosts and very generous with recommendations and highly attentive. We particularly enjoyed many of their walk recommendations and made the most of the amazing dining options in the local area. The cottage is perfectly situated to explore many of the wonderful areas Devon has to offer but also has plenty to do on the doorstep if you don’t want to travel. We would highly recommend this property and will definitely return.

Andrew and Trine, Stratford-on-Avon

A great place to come for a few days of proper village life with lovely walks, good towns near for shopping, two pubs to walk to and a swish, cosy little retreat to come back to.

The neighbourhood

This is a village with much going for it - locals who go back many generations rub shoulders happily with newcomers and there's a friendly feel. The church is worth a visit for its 13th-century chancel. You can hire bikes in Totnes and cycle the Dart Valley which is mainly off-road, or take a steam train trip. Ashburton has antique shops and delis, Dartmoor is 20 minutes and Salcombe and Bantham are less than an hour.

Local points of interest from Charlotte Parton

  • Wildflower Cottage is nestled in the courtyard of an ancient manor house, built originally in the 14C and added to in the Georgian eras. The farm is on 7 acres and sheep still graze under the old apple orchards which provide us with our cider & juice.
  • The cottage basks in the afternoon sun which streams through your open stable door in the evenings. Inside it is decorated with original artworks (wildflowers of course!) and you can enjoy pretty vases of freshly cut wildflowers from our meadow.
  • Wildflower cottage is finished to a very high spec from its Loaf sofa and Danish woodburner, super comfy Feather & Black bed with sumptuous bedding to its big bath and rainforest shower, all set off with elegant fittings by Lefroy Brooks and Jim Lawrence.
  • Fabulous English countryside hiking is minutes from your door. A short drive away, walk in ancient woodland along the beautiful River Dart at Dartington Hall. Or a bit further on is Dartmoor, offering a stunning array of scenery in its 365 sq miles!
  • The nearest pub is a 2 minute stroll away and as well as great food, a roaring fire and cosy traditional setting, has an interesting name The Coppa Dolla - nothing to do with money but an old Devonian abbreviation of The Coppiced Alder (tree)!
  • Within 45 minutes drive you can be enjoying the stunning coastline -sailing from Salcombe, beach-combing on beautiful Blackpool Sands or striding out on the amazing South Coast path. Enjoy great seafood & locally made wine. Dogs welcome in most pubs!
