See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Reputed to have been built in the reign of Edward II, The Cott is one of the oldest thatched inns in Britain and has been a hostelry since around 1320. It was originally three cottages that were bought by Johannes Cott who converted it to inn as a staging post for shepherds and their sheep on route to the ancient port of Totnes. Set in this peaceful village, yet only 5 minutes from Totnes, the pubs interior is exposed black oak beams and timbers, white painted stone walls and open fireplaces. At the front of the pub there is a car park and a pretty floral garden, with picnic bench seating. 'Top British Pub 2019' in The Great British Pub awards.
