A detached house in Totnes, Devon, near sea and Dartmoor

We would be interested in an exchange of about 2 weeks during 2016 somewhere not too hot! We are also open to offers for short breaks at any time.

Ours is a 1930's house with attractive gardens, and good sized rooms, just 10 minutes walk from Totnes town centre. Totnes is a special town on the River Dart, with an old castle and interesting 17th century buildings and architecture. There are plenty of individual shops, cafes etc as well as a couple of supermarkets, for all your holiday needs. The beautiful coast is nearby and has beaches and spectacular cliffs. The nearest beach is about 10km. Dartmoor is also nearby and is a hilly area populated by wild horses and sheep, good for walking, picnics and pubs. You can also take a boat along the river to Dartmouth.
This is a popular area with tourists so plenty to do and see eg steam railway, ancient manor houses, castles, caves etc see http://www.totnesinformation.co.uk/ From end of July for three weeks is the Dartington International Summer School of Music, held in the wonderful setting of Dartington Hall, just 3km from here. If you are interested in performing or just listening this is something special, not to be missed.

We have a cat who sleeps downstairs or in the garden in the day, and in the kitchen at night. She is a bit timid, doesn't like being picked up, but friendly enough when hungry.

We are experienced Intervac users having made several exchanges in the 1980's before the days of Internet, so that part is new experience. Last year we had a successful exchange to Paris.
