Living and eating

Inside this sweet escape you'll find an open plan kitchen and living space, adorned in a soft palette of pastel hues and rustic interior touches to create a haven made to simply rest and reset.

Settle down for cosy living moments in the snug lounge space, featuring a Tom Raffield pendant light, comfy two-seater sofa in soft linen and a textured jute rug, all creating a calming corner made to relax and unwind. While away blissful evenings catching up on your favourite series with the Smart TV and sound bar, or savour a little quietude with a glass of something lovely and delve into one of the many beautiful books on display. On warmer days, open the French doors to welcome a gentle breeze through the linen drapes and invite the outside in.

The stunning L-shaped kitchen has everything you could need to woo that special someone with a romantic feast for two, from the induction hob and oven to a microwave and dishwasher. Uncover ample space for prepping your chosen dish with local treats, plus a lovely stone counter bar with oak stools rests between the kitchen and lounge area, perfect for pared-back brunches and intimate dining.

Sleeping and bathing

To the left of the entrance hall lies the heavenly bedroom, for the seekers of a sumptuous space to retreat in luxurious tranquillity. This swoon-worthy sanctuary holds a cushion-clad double bed, adorned in Egyptian cotton bedding, a lavish throw and an array of beautiful finishing touches. In addition, you'll find waffle bath robes and spa slippers to complement those self-care rituals, plus plenty of storage space for luggage.

The stylish shower room is perfect for wake-me-up moments, decorated in gorgeous grey tones along with an overhead rainfall shower and a heated rail to keep towels warm and fluffy. You'll also find a washing machine tucked away in the storage space.

Outdoor space

Step outside to relax in the shared courtyard space, complete with a designated seating area for savouring your first sip of morning coffee and pre-dinner tipples. Spend blissful moments alfresco at golden hour and soak up a dose of calm in the warmer months.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Ettie:

Lovely week at Ettie. Totnes is a lovely town and less then 1/2 hr to all local attractions, thanks for making it a lovely memorable week.

It is an excellent location and the cottage is equipped to a very high standard. It is a very short walk to all shops and restaurants, and Totnes is an interesting, alternative style town.

I am happy for you to include my initial comments and to include how helpful you guys were in resolving any issues I had or had questions on. Thank you so much
