Beautiful, well equipped cottage with lovely views. Tastefully decorated and conveniently opposite the village shop and pub! As is common with older village properties no driveway/parking outside but plenty of options nearby. Owners very helpful and quick to respond to communications. Can wholeheartedly recommend!

Thanks for the review, very kind. Oh and just to note, the Kings Arms re-opened Sept 2015 so we'd love to welcome you back, the pub is equally a must visit excellent food and beverage and very freindly hosts #all on our doorstep.

How to get there
There are many routes to Walpole House, our favourite is from the main A38, head for Totnes, Dartington, Salocmbe & Dartmouth, a nice stop off is Dartington Factory Outlet, general open times are 10am til 4pm you can explore the world of glass making, to buying some bargains from the factory direct. They have a wonderful restaurant and other shops from toy shops, to home and bazaar and food and drink delights on site making a great stop en route.
