The boat room was a lovey holiday apartment in a beautiful river location. Nicely thought out and very well stocked for a weekend away (or longer). The bottle of wine and jug of milk in the fridge was very welcoming and the information pack detailing dog friendly beaches was handy. It was my first trip to Totnes and to the Boat room and it won’t be the last, very much looking forward to returning for anther visit to both very soon.

We had a lovely time and enjoyed staying in this accommodation, we had a restful and relaxing break and would recommend the property. We did have a problem and it wasn't the fault of the owner, the parking situation around Totnes wasn't very good we made an inquiry of the local county borough council for a weekly parking permit and the cost was £40 which rather surprised us, perhaps the price for rentals in this area should take this into consideration.

Delighted that you had a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Yes, weekly parking charges down here are around £40.00 for the week, but that also entitles you to park in all the South Hams car parks during your stay.
