Surrounded by ancient woodlands, meandering rivers, and a bohemian vibe that’s a charming contradiction to the ancient fabric of the town itself, this Georgian home in the heart of Totnes has been designed with guests in mind. There are two luxurious living rooms, plus a large kitchen and dining room for light lunches and social sharing suppers. The adjoining games room keeps the kids busy – and ensures plenty of nearby ‘volunteers’ to help lay the table. If you’d prefer to dine alfresco, head to the garden and gather on the veranda – it’s the perfect spot for morning coffees, too, and there’s outdoor table tennis to provide hours of family fun on windless days. Head across the River Dart towards town, and you’ll find charming pubs, independent shops, vintage boutiques and vegan restaurants as you make your way up Fore Street towards Totnes Castle. Britain’s first zero-waste supermarket is just a ten-minute walk in the same direction (if you aren’t tempted to stop anywhere en route, that is). If you’re looking to explore further afield, hop in the car and reach the south-eastern edge of Dartmoor in twenty minutes, or Bantham Beach in around forty (there are closer options, but this one is the best). Or perhaps a stroll along one of the riverside footpaths is more your thing – you’ll be able to contain the mess of muddy walks in the home’s bespoke boot room when you return.
