“Lovely cottage , superb location”

This cottage is so conveniently situated just off the top of the High Street .It is beautifully presented , with comfortable furniture and well equipped kitchen. The beds were comfortable, the shower powerful and the wifi was fast and reliable.
All communication with the owners was pleasant and stress free and there was a nice welcome pack and plenty of information provided on Totnes and South Devon.
Although we drove , the property is conveniently situated for the station, buses and boats as well as 2 supermarkets and the all the lovely shops and cafes.We enjoyed some lovely walks from Holly Cottage including to Dartington Hall.
The photos don't do the cottage justice , it really was much more spacious and beautiful than we had expected.

“A GEM OF A COTTAGE - HOME FROM HOME”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 for a stay in December 2013

people found this review helpful

My partner, our adult daughter and her friend stayed just after Christmas 2013 and the New Year. The cottage was everything we had hoped for - brilliant kitchen, well equipped, warm and welcoming - we spent many happy hours there cooking and chatting. All the beds were comfortable with clean white bed linen. The shower worked a treat as did everything else in the house. The real fire was a bonus, although don't light it if it's windy, because when we did smoke filled the whole room and we had to put it out! Quite exciting but not recommended. We all had a wonderful time shopping in Totnes, frequenting the local pubs especially the old one called The Albert Inn, recommended by the conductor on the Paignton to Dartmouth Railway. We had a great time on New Years Eve singing, dancing and generally being given a warm welcome by the locals. We also did a few runs along the river which was very picturesque but had been affected by the floods. All in all a wonderful stay in a very comfortable cottage and a delightful historic town.

“Really lovely”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Thoroughly loved our stay. The pictures are very true images. Very well equiped kitchen and the living/bedroom space is very comfortable. All in a perfect (central) location with free parking! What more could you wish for. Looking forward to a return visit next year, hopefully.

A very well furnished and located property. The welcome pack was much appreciated. The photographs do not do the house justice.

Holly Cottage was great - well equipped, clean and attractively decorated, comfortable, good shower and a great kitchen for cooking. We enjoyed the first floor patio - and the cats who visited.
