Description

This charming Grade II listed cottage retains many of its character features including pretty sash windows and woodburning stove. The accommodation boasts an open plan kitchen dining area, sitting room, spacious master bedroom with contemporary ensuite shower room, 2 further bedrooms, one with an ensuite cloakroom and a further modern shower room. The cottage has been beautifully decorated and furnished throughout and benefits from designated parking for one car in nearby North Street.  There is also a garden opposite the cottage and accessed via the pedestrian walkway and through a private gate, this enchanting space feels very much like your own private secret garden.  

Tucked beneath the ancient 11th century Totnes Castle, 10 Castle Street is perfectly located for exploring this 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.

The popular naval town of Dartmouth is also just 12 miles away and the scenic Dartmoor National Park is also only just 8 miles away.

10 Castle Street. You made us feel like Royalty. This home, just like the town of Totnes celebrates character, soul and fun and nothing is more beautiful that that. Exploring the house for the first time I felt like a child. Never before have I slept in the shadow of a Norman Castle with the energy of so much history surrounding me . Opening each door in this tardis like home was not so different to opening an advent calendar . The doors in the house are painted a beautiful pistachio colour and on the first visit it isn't immediately obvious whether you'll find a fridge, another room or a stairway behind the door! Neither is it obvious just how big the house is! From the front it looks so quaint and dainty but don't be deceived! We are a family of 4 and my children aged 11 and 14 felt like they had a very grown up and spacious top floor flat while my husband and I in the basement felt like we had the nicest suite in a hotel! It was perfect for all and we all felt special! The house has some charming character pieces too - namely the WONDERFUL grizzly bear foot stool. I wanted to take him home with me! A charming touch that made us all smile! The house also boasts an open fire in the master suite. We had one very special night toasting marshmallows, feeling cosy and watching a movie. The house has access to Netflix and many well chosen movies which is a nice touch after a busy day exploring. You'll also find books in the butterfly cabinet and games too. The house has the unique quality of being tucked away yet incredibly well located. You feel at peace the moment you set foot inside yet should you wish to venture out you can find more peace in the STUNNING garden. The garden is accessed rather like a secret garden! The door is opposite the front door...with a click of the padlock you're in......several steps down the garden path and you're in paradise! This garden has amazing views of the castle and plenty of space for all. A true sanctuary. Should you wish to venture out in the evening or during the day you'll find the high street literally a 3 minute walk away! This high street is UNIQUE! Unlike so many today it is full of independent shops. Here you can find many fun and quirky pieces from amazing retro items in Revival to modern and funky home décor in Love Frankie. You will find that everyone lives life with passion in Totnes. Chris in the flower shop made a girl who isn't green fingered at all fall in love with a plant which had to come home with me and Jimmy in Jimmy's guitars played us beautiful music and one of the music makers had to come home with us too! Basically - do what makes you happy, do it well and make a living spreading your joy. A good ethos in life. For the foodies there are many delicious restaurants close by. We tried Little Asia and Café Mumbai. Both were delicious and an easy walk from home. Also The Happy Apple Supermarket moments from the front door has many interesting items that you won't find everywhere. Much more fun that your usual supermarket. The railway station is also a very short walk away. My husband actually joined me from London halfway through the trip. We were able to walk down to the station to greet him and he was in Totnes from Paddington in just over 3 hours which is very quick - especially given the scenery that he was able to enjoy on the way! We took day trips to Salcombe - 40 minutes away where we enjoyed beautiful walks and a fascinating tour of the gardens at Overbecks a National Trust property with a fascinating history. Also we visited Dartmoor for a pony trek with Shilstone Stables. Hope Cove was a favourite to see the sun go down too. Like something from the film The Goonies! The parking space made life rather deluxe too - no worrying about where to park on the return from a day trip. All taken care of. A 5* home in a fascinating town bursting with character - surrounded by beautiful scenery. We will be back - SO many things we still want to do - the boat tour to Dartmouth, the steam train & Dart Country Park to name a few. Oohhh and also next time I MUST find the healing well in Totnes too. Time ran away with us as it always does when you're having fun. Thank You!

What a fantastic find! Excellent property as a family holiday retreat in a perfect location in the centre of Totnes (right by the entrance to the castle). We visited for five nights during February half term. The three storey property is perfect for families. Two bedrooms upstairs for our three children, a spacious middle floor with relaxing lounge, dining area and kitchen overlooking the courtyard. Master en-suite downstairs with its own lounge area and log fire. Totnes is a quirky and fun town with a good choice of cafes, restaurants, bars, lots of individual shops, and a convenience store less than 150 metres from the house. There is so much to do in the local area, whether that’s a walk (and pub lunch) over in Dartmoor, trips to the various local beaches (park at Thurlestone and enjoy the walk to Hope Cove), River Dart Country Park, or hanging out in Totnes for breakfast enjoying one of the market, before spending an hour exploring the castle or in the sanctuary of secret garden (which isn’t obvious but is part of the property). We will definitely be back to visit next year.
