SITUATION

Holly Cottage occupies a peaceful position in the hamlet complex of Hemsford, a short distance from the sought-after village of Littlehempston, with its historic parish church and thriving community pub. The surrounding countryside is attractive and un-spoilt and offers good opportunity for outdoor pursuits, whilst the beautiful South Devon coast is within easy driving distance. Staverton is approximately 1 mile away, also with its highly regarded inn and church as well as St Christopher's School, a prep and nursery school. The busy medieval town of Totnes, geographically built as the highest navigable point upon the River Dart, rapidly grew into the gateway to the South Hams, which is renowned for its pretty beaches and countryside. Today Totnes is a bustling and thriving market town, that retains much of its original character, full of interest with a wide range of good local schools, shopping facilities and recreational pursuits including indoor swimming pool and boating opportunities on the River Dart. Totnes allows easy communication with the rest of the country. The A38 Devon expressway is approximately 5 miles away, allowing speedy access to the cities of Exeter and Plymouth and the country beyond. Main line rail links in a little over 3 hours to London Paddington are also located in Totnes. Regional airports at both Plymouth and Exeter mean that the north of the country, the continent and the beyond are within reach.
