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 in which wildflowers are allowed to romp. 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.

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; same distance west and you’re on Dartmoor.

Reviews

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.

Location

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.

Introducing

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.
