OLD SEYMOUR LODGE This Grade II listed attached town house is situated just a short walk from the town centre and the River Dart. One of a pair of houses which once comprised an early 19th century villa, the house retains many original features which complement smart, high quality fittings and an excellent recent extension which has created a light and airy new kitchen/dining room with full length bi-fold doors leading out to a courtyard garden.

The house has three reception rooms including the kitchen/dining room, and four bedrooms and two bathrooms over the two upper floors. The sitting room overlooks a gravelled courtyard In front of the house. The dining room's bi-fold doors open on to a low maintenance garden which includes a sizeable sundeck, raised beds with mature planting underneath a stone archway and a further area of the garden with useful storage. A gate opens onto a parking area for two vehicles.
 

HOW TO FIND IT From The Plains [near the Royal Seven Stars Hotel], walk across the bridge into Bridgetown. Continue to the end of the road and turn right onto Bridgetown Hill. Old Seymour Lodge is almost immediately after the junction and on the right.  

TOTNES The unique and charming market town of Totnes sits above the River Dart in the heart of the South Hams. The town is one of Devon's gems, the birthplace of the Transition Town movement in England and nominated in British Airways' HighLife magazine as one of the world's top ten funky towns. Full of colour and character, its atmosphere is cosmopolitan with a West Country flavour and those looking for history, alternative therapies and beautiful countryside will find it in and around Totnes. The town is said to have more listed buildings per head of the population than anywhere else in Britain. With a twice-a-week market and full of small independent shops, it's well-known for ethical products, wholefoods and fair trade goods. It is the second oldest borough in England, with an ancient Guildhall and Church, a Norman Castle and its North and East Gates. There is a well-regarded community college and a mainline railway station and Dartmoor, the South Hams and many of its fine beaches are within easy reach.
