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.
