Stable Cottage is tucked beneath the ancient 11th century walls of Totnes Castle in the heart of this fascinating medieval Devon town, a very special and unique market town on the river Dart in the heart of beautiful South Devon, steeped with history, charm and boasting countless attractions for the modern day tourist. An eclectic mix of traditional market town with a flamboyant bohemian twist, the enticing narrow streets are filled with unusual independent shops, restaurants and cafes including organic and specialist food suppliers for which the town is renowned. Just down the road is Dartington Hall, where a major event in the national literary calendar takes place (Way with Words) in the stunning surrounds of the estate during July. In July and August musicians and composers from all over the world flock to Dartington for the opportunity to immerse themselves in their art. Courses for all ages and abilities are on offer and a full concert programme. Stable Cottage provides a very comfortable and attractively furnished base from which to experience this unusual and interesting town and area, with its own train station served directly from London Paddington.
