SITUTATION 
Birdwood Cottage occupies an enviable town centre position in historic South Street, close to the market place and Civil Hall. Totnes is a sought after South Hams town famous for its vibrancy, diversity, culture and artistic talent. The town is rich in fine period buildings, interesting small shops, cafes and restaurants, galleries and good educational provision. There is a main-line station to London Paddington, excellent road links and easy access to the beautiful South Devon coast. The celebrated Dartington Hall, a centre for performing and creative arts and progressive education is just 2 miles. Sailing and rowing are popular on the River Dart and the surrounding unspoilt countryside is perfect for walking, riding and cycling.

HISTORIC NOTES 
Birdwood Cottage is a Grade II listed building. The Georgian recessed multi-paned windows, panelled doors, dado rails and lofty ceilings suggest a house of mid to late 18th Century origins (circa 1780s). Reputed at one time to have been a hostelry/ale house, it may well have started life as the residence of a prosperous merchant. Many of Totnes' Elizabethan merchants houses were re-modelled in Georgian and Victorian times with ?new' facades and decorative features to appear more fashionable and contemporary to their period.
