In the heart of lovely, higgledy-piggledy Totnes is a whitewashed house with pert blue windows and doors, friendly Bethan and John, pretty flowers and good art. Guests have an open-plan room for delicious breakfasts. Bedrooms are bright and uncluttered with excellent beds and handsome rugs. They have too, created an enchanting garden of surprises which all are welcome to roam. It’s about a quarter of an acre in size and begins with a small courtyard area filled with pots, then up to three small ponds, fed by rainwater and supplying the garden with frogs and newts. Beyond these are riotous flower beds in which wildflowers are allowed to romp. John encourages the self-seeded to survive. Poppies, hollyhocks, forget-me-nots and columbine rub shoulders with more formal planting; fruit and fir trees provide shade and roses, honeysuckle and blackberries scramble up walls. In summer the greenhouse groans with tomatoes and grapes, along with hibiscus, oleander and a bright red geranium. Behind a stone wall there is a vegetable and fruit garden where priority is given to produce that is good to pick at and eat raw. Bliss.

The neighbourhood

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.
