Overall we enjoyed the stay and in particular exploring Totnes, I suggest pick up a street map at the tourist office which has the main things to see including the market which closes by Oct. The sellers dress in Elizabethan costume and were all very friendly.
Another favourite was the Ticklemore Cheese Company.
Parking is tight at the cottage, a 2009 Ford Focus hatchback from the rental company was too wide to allow the neighbours car to pass when we were parked against the stone wall.
Also when leaving you have to reverse down a steep single track road which has a curve and stone walls on each side.
The cottage is small but very well equipped yet some things were not provided such as washing machine powder, spices, washing up liquid, etc which other similar cottages in the UK do normally provide. The 2 dining chairs are hard and uncomfortable, and if you want to read a book the only option is a large couch which faces a wall. There are no comfortable chairs upstairs which is a nice place to read -much brighter. The stairs are hard to negotiate even for someone of average height.
If the above are not issues for you, I think you will be quite happy staying at the cottage.
It is outfitted for a couple with perhaps a child in addition..
