‘Annacombe’ is a spacious and imaginative coachhouse conversion perfect for a child friendly escape for family, for friends or a romantic bolthole for two. The cottage is set in the grounds of a large country house in the beautiful countryside of the South Hams near south Devon’s historic and buzzily-alternative town of Totnes. Lying not far from the river Dart, and between the sailing centres of Dartmouth, Kingsbridge and Salcombe and the rugged wilderness of Dartmoor, it is an ideal base for exploring this unspoiled region with its excellent beaches, landscape and charming towns and villages

"Beautiful and stylish converted coach house in a magical setting. Spacious, well equipped and comfortable - such comfortable beds! Never got tired of the approach to the house with the view down the valley on one side, sheep in the field on the other and the turrets of the big house just visible through the trees. Peaceful semi-rural setting - lovely to come back to at the end of the day. The big house is next door and divided into separate flats but we barely saw or heard any of the residents while we were there. 10 minutes walk into the village which has a 13th century pub with good food - very friendly owner and staff. 10 minutes drive into Totnes - full of little independent shops and cafes (highly recommend Woods Bistro for breakfast and lunch). The market on Friday is well worth a visit. Half an hour drive from Dartmoor and 25 mins from Blackpool Sands (pristine beach, well worth the fee for parking). Gavan was super friendly and helpful throughout the booking process. We were very sorry to have to leave!"

"Very well appointed and comfortable cottage on a manorial estate near Totnes. Surrounded by quiet - albeit hilly - roads and footpaths for cycling and walking. In easy range of Dartmoor and the south coast. Totnes itself is just about in walking distance on a steep track and is a friendly small town with a good range of restaurants & shops. Enjoyed the veggie cafe and the brewpub, both on the High Street."

"Loved the open plan aspect to this house and which gives you lots of options in the way you can use it, dining in the large room, kitchen or outside and you can open out into the courtyard and enjoy the the country air and evening warmth with a G&T. The sleeping arrangements worked well for us with almost a separate annex bedroom and ensuite downstairs was ideal for my daughter and her partner and little girl. We explored South Devon but it was essential to have a car though ,the narrow lanes are a challenge as it is easy to lose your bearings. We had a problem with the fridge but Gavan tried his best to sort out the problem but that was the only blip on a lovely holiday."

"Wonderful three bedroom property away from all noise with nearby neighbours approximately five minutes drive from Totnes Devon. Comfortable three toilet two bathroomed property with good wifi connection. The kitchen is well proportioned and has excellent facilities and is comfortable and welcoming. Ideal for elderly people with mobility problems having its main bedroom on the bottom floor."

"Stayed between 13th - 20th May 2017, 5 adults and a 3 month old baby. A lovely rural retreat, very convenient for Totnes and for exploring Devon and Dartmoor. Large comfortable lounge, well equipped kitchen and very comfortable bedrooms. Light and airy family bathroom, downstairs en-suite could do with a refurbish. Quiet, private location, part of a Victorian house/estate. Access 'interesting' as via typical Devon roads, but little traffic so not too much of a problem. Local pub, Chuch House Inn, in Harberton very welcoming with good food and service. We all loved our week here!"

"Part of a tiny settlement at Tristford House. Unique interior. 5min drive to Totnes. 20min drive to Paignton/Torquay"

"The owner was very helpful and accommodating. The accommodation is a spacious 3 double bedroom barn conversion built within a quiet country estate. The kitchen is practical with breakfast area and there is a separate dining table in the main living area that also houses comfy chairs and lovely large open fire for cosy winter evenings. The accommodation is very clean and well maintained and styled in keeping with the building type. Access to the 2 upper bedrooms is via a substantial wooden mezzanine landing that fits beautifully with the rest of the exposed wooden beams. The property is suitable for a couple who appreciate space or a family gathering. The 'Arty' town of Totnes is just over a couple of miles away down traditional Devon roads and has a Morrisons supermarket. Totnes has its own charm, community feel, nice tea shops and readily available parking. The accommodation is sited such the coast, and Dartmoor, as well as Haldon Forest (mountain biking, walking routes and segway experience) are all accessible and if city shopping is necessary then Exeter is not too far. Torquay has a zoo and there is a real quad bike experience 20 mins East at Devon Leisure. We would return Anytime!"
