Our home is perfect for young families. It's light and cosy with a lovely garden backing straight into the woods. A big green at the front for children to play on, kids are in paradise here! 10 mins from Totnes, the river Dart and Dartmoor.
The houses on Huxham's Cross were built for the workers on Dartington Estate in the early part of last century. Our home is only a walk away to Dartington Hall through beautiful woods. Go through the same woods to swim in the river, cycle down to Totnes (and discover a high street and market bustling with energy) or enjoy a coffee in the cool Staverton nursery cafe. We're also a walk away from the steam train which takes you to the Otter and Butterfly Sanctuary in Buckfastleigh and the Rare Breeds Farm in Totnes. Both great days out for the family. If you feel like staying at home there's a big garden to relax in, with a large trampoline, a slide and a hammock for those lazy days in the sun. You'll be bathed in birdsong as well as sunshine.
The cabin at the end of the garden is private and can not be used during your stay.
You'll have access to full wifi connection in the house. We do not own a TV so please make sure you bring a laptop or ipad if you would like to watch things. There is one kingsize bedroom, one single or twin bedroom (depending on what is required) and one childrens bedroom ( with a small child's bed). We have lots of musical instruments to share: a piano, keyboard, guitar, drums, lots of percussion, and plenty of toys for smaller children, including an all time favourite- a lovely wooden rocking horse. There's also plenty of books to choose from if you fancy snuggling up on the couch for a quiet night in. The bathroom is a bit old school with only a bath, sink and toilet - no shower. But there is hot water at any time you want.
Other things to note
We don't own a TV but there's a desktop computer in the twin room which plays DVDs ( please bring your own DVDs).
Our home is a no smoking zone.
We have neighbours close by on either side. Please respect them in terms of any noise at night time, thank you!
