Promising romantic interiors, thoughtfully curated with comfort and luxury living in mind, this darling abode is just made for couples or solo travellers alike. Set within the very soul of this eclectic town, the hustle and bustle of independent boutiques and artisan eateries await for the lovers of town life. Just steps from the centre and dog friendly too, wander the cobbled streets of Totnes and further afield with ease. Following a day of discovery, slip softly into soothing retreat moments and retire in the cosiest of corners in our romantic retreat - a hidden gem offering the best of both worlds.

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 super king 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 courtyard, complete with a designated L-shaped seating area complete with a table 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:

Absolutely lovely bolt hole in Totnes- fantastic central location and really lovely interior. Very comfortable bed and it was really quiet at night despite being in town. Highly recommend.

Great cottage in an ideal location for Totnes

Beautiful cottage in an ideal location.

The cottage is really well thought out, spacious enough and tastefully decorated. It is in an excellent location with secure parking and takes 2 minutes to walk into Totnes High Street.

We were delighted with our cosy Devon Christmas retreat, we didn't want for anything! The cottage is perfectly located just behind the high street in Totnes, but peaceful and quiet at the same time and fully equipped for us to cook our favourite dishes.

We were blown away but all the little touches, such as the stylish Christmas decorations and the welcome hamper. The shower was wonderful and definitely worth a special mention. Parking outside was perfect and there were plenty of dog walks to choose from, as the river Dart is very close. Thank you so much, our Devon stay was divine and we would definitely love to come back.

Fantastic location 2 minutes walk from the high street of Totnes . The cottage is of a very high standard and exceptionally clean . Would highly recommend this property .

Beautiful cottage in a lovely location which was a good base to visit South Devon and the wonders of Totnes.

Walk-in shower with various settings was very welcome.

Bedroom was very romantic and tranquil.

We will most definitely recommend to family and friends and will be back when we visit the area again.

Excellent accommodation and lovely location

Ettie is a dream cottage for a peaceful holiday for two. The quality of the interior decoration is second to none, the facilities are exceptionally modern and the location is excellent for exploring Totnes, the river Dart and surrounding areas. The added bonus of a garage for parking is great. Despite being behind the high street, Ettie is very peaceful and there is no noise disruption at all from the town. We had a perfect week away for two visiting Totnes, Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Thurlestone, Torcross and many other smaller villages too. The beaches are amazing, the cafes are delightful and the views are outstanding in the area. 10 out of 10, we will definitely be back to visit again and would be happy with any accommodation booked through boutique retreats. Superb service.

The cottage is clean, very nice and very well equipped . It is in the center of the city.

Perfect location , excellent standards throughout and very comfortable... only wished I could have stayed longer.

Ettie is the most beautiful cottage in an amazing location! Everything we needed and more was provided, I could not fault this cottage or stay and will definitely be returning!

Good communication and really lovely place

The cottage is a little slice of luxury in Totnes. We loved every bit about it and would most certainly look to book another Boutique Retreats property in the future. Thank you so much for making our one year anniversary trip super special.

Great property in convenient location and finished to a lovely standard. It was also spotlessly clean.

Lovely property with a great location. Would definitely stay again.

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.

Excellent discreet location, well furnished and well equipped. Very cosy.

Ettie is perfectly located to explore Totnes. It's location less than a minute from the main shopping street, the restaurants and the market. The cottage is brand new and perfect for two adults. It's compact but has everything you need including garage parking and a nice outside area to seat.
