Longcombe Cottages are a row of just three properties located in open countryside on the edge of Totnes. At Longcome Cross there is a bus stop providing a service into Totnes and Torbay.  Only around two miles away is Totnes town centre where there is a wide range of individual retail outlets, eating venues/public houses and recreational/cultural facilities available.  In the opposite direction is the larger town of Paignton also with a comprehensive selection of amenities.  Both of these towns have railway stations sited on the line that links Penzance with London Paddington.  At Paignton access is also gained to the A380 for travelling to Exeter. To the west, flanking Dartmoor National Park, is the A38 Devon Expressway for travelling down to Plymouth or up to Exeter and beyond via the M5 Motorway.  Plymouth has a ferry port providing services to Roscoff in France and Santander in Spain whilst Exeter possesses an international airport.  To the south is the beautiful south hams countryside and coastline.  

The current owner of the cottage has carried out many worthwhile imrpovements including a creation of a third bedroom and an office by way of a loft conversion.  As with most older properties further improvements can be made and the property will form a very comfortable home for the next owner.  Other noteworthy features include the large rear garden and the use of the parking area opposite for two cars. The views from the property are outstanding across to typical Devon rolling countryside.

DIRECTIONS:  Take the A385 signposted to Paignton.  At Longcombe Cross, on a left hand bend, turn right signposted Stoke Gabriel.  Drive down the hill past Traceys Farm and turn left onto the country lane. Middle Longcombe Cottages will be found a short distance along here on the left hand side.
