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.

We loved the cottage and are very grateful to Mrs. Jebb for her support throughout our stay. She answered all questions via email within minutes. And of course, we loved her banana bread which was waiting for us upon arrival. The bottle of wine was also a thoughtful touch. It was very helpful to have the key behind the window book which gave 4 people the freedom to come and go without worrying about keys. The cottage is clean, spacious, wonderfully located, comfortable, with lots of light for reading and extra towels - things that a tired traveler appreciates. Many thanks !
We had a brilliant stay. The location is fantastic and the cottage is lovely. Thank you
Stable cottage was superb. I'm just sorry that my partner Sue wasn't there to enjoy such a lovely cottage.
The little extras were really appreciated. Flowers, welcome biscuits and wine etc - so thoughtful.
Hi Jeni and Stuart, I can honestly say that this is easily the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in! You thought of everything and the decor was superb!
We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at Stable Cottage and look forward to welcoming you back very soon! Best wishes, The Toad Hall Team.

Wonderful cottage with great charm in a fabulous location. Would definitely recommend. A new clothes airer would be a welcome addition - for those who do not wish to leave the tumble dryer on whilst out of the property.

Lovely well equipped cottage in a fantastic Totnes location in the heart of a really happening town. We came here as our first holiday as a family of four, with our three month old and our parents joined us for a couple of nights. We liked the little touches, wine and herbs and the helpful information folder. We loved Totnes and the South Hams area and felt there is so much more than we could fit into a week! Thank you and we will be back!
House is of very high standard, and has all mod cons. Owner was very helpful and very kind, with all questions and queries, which was really helpful as we travelled from abroad to be there. I was given detailed instruction on how to get there (very important with one way system), where to find the keys, parking permit, and even had a fresh pint of milk in the fridge, plus a cake, on day of arrival
Brilliant location a short stroll from Totnes High St. with its vibrant shops and cafes and unique atmosphere
Best holiday for awhile, easy to book, good communication, delightful cottage. Thank you.
The Cottage is really well equipped and very comfortable. The owner had very thoughtfully decorated it for us so it was really Christmassy and welcoming, such a nice touch and much appreciated by us all.
We stayed with our family of grown up teens and we all loved the cottage which had every possible comfort and plenty of character. We found the location was very convenient for shops, places to eat and the train station, which we used for lots of days out as we holidayed without a car. The owners are very kind and helpful and the cottage is both beautiful and homely.
Excellent place to stay, the cottage was a home from home, very comfortable in every respect and well equipped especially with an 18 month old baby. The owner called us a few times to confirm our stay, arrival etc and was very hospitable and professional, we also loved totnes and would definitely stay at stables cottages again.
This cottage could be recommended as a base to travel to by train.Well connected to public transport.The whole experience went well.
Fine. The whole experience went well.
