Lovely place - charming and characterful whilst being clean and practical. Shoshana's communication was second to none. Highly recommended.

Shoshana's place gave us a great stay close to Dartmoor and Totnes and the perfect launch pad to explore the beautiful South west.

Shoshana leaves her personal style in this house. It is Zen and yoga allover. That gives the house a special style. It is cosy and nice. The location is great. From Buckfastleigh you are on the M5 in a minute, beaches and the beatiful national park of Dartmoor are very nearby. I did a cycletrip from the house, don't underestimate the climbs, like I did. They can kill you.... We did some walking from the house, that is great as well. The house has a nice garden and a place to store bicycles in. Enjoy!

Hehe Marcel - Yes Dartmoor is hilly on Bike! : ) And really beautiful. Glad you got to experience some of the wild yet gentle nature of Dartmoor and beaches. It's why I live here! Lovely to host you and your family. Best wishes!

Shoshana's house is absolutely beautiful and definitely lives up to the expectations. Located in a very scenic area, the house is easy to get to and shoshana has provides plenty of information of how to get there. We as a family of 8 stayed there and the house was a fantastic place to relax and also go onn nice walks. Shoshana gave us a few tips about nearby restaurants and routes to walk. Altogether my family was very happy as so was I :D. A must visit.

After years of living in Asia I wanted to live close to nature and settled in a small Devon countryside town in UK, where I live with my daughter. I help people build healthier and more caring lives through my business, Karuna Detox, a health fast detox retreat, where I teach yoga, meditation, healthy lifestyle and nutrition.
I enjoy people and places that have heart and are relaxed and real. Peaceful, beautiful, artistic people and places inspire me.
