Totnes - Possibly the Funkiest Town in England???

Totnes is a charming town whose high street is populated almost entirely by independent retailers. What a relief to not be stumbling over the ubiquitous chains of coffee shops and mobile phone shops which dog almost every other high street in the land! And where else would it be possible to buy organic meat and vegetables, handmade shoes, quality furniture, pictures and fine art and a willow coffin, all in the same high street?

With its more than generous helping of ""alternative therapy"" practitioners Totnes undoubtedly qualifies as one of the leading contenders for the ""Funkiest Town in England"" competition which will make it appeal to visitors of all ages but in particular teenagers. With its castle atop the hill, the beautiful arched clock tower spanning the high street and the meandering Dart River running through the town, Totnes is a jewel.

There are a number of excellent restaurants cafes and bistros, some enjoying beautiful views over the river. But don't miss the fantastic tea shops in the high street which serve some of the best cream teas in Devon.

The town also acts as a wonderful base from which to explore much of Devon. Being strategically located just off the A38, it enjoys easy access to the fabulous beaches of the South Hams (East Portlemouth, Bigbury, Slapton, Blackpool Sands etc) but also benefits from being close to Dartmoor and only 1.5 hours from the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan.

The immediate area also plays host to some of the most beautiful countryside and attractions in Devon including Sharpham Vineyard, Dartington Hall, Dartmouth, Coleton Fishacre, Buckfastliegh, the South Devon Railway and Paignton Zoo with its Living Coasts attraction at nearby Torquay.

Horse riding, mountain biking, hill walking, canoeing, fishing, surfing, ballooning and sailing are all available in the area or for those who just want to chill out, take a good bottle of wine and a picnic and just sit in some of the most glorious countryside you will ever wish to see and listen to the ...........silence!

                                                              We arrived to our appointed cottage, with great instructions to find you. Upon our arrival we were welcomed with Tea/coffee sugar and a beautiful Chocolate cake. We started unpacking and Kay greeted us with lots of suggestions on what to do and went through everything with us. The Cottage was beautiful, everything we needed was there. The Swimming pool and Hot tub was a huge hit with the family. One of the days I really fancied afternoon tea on the river, but the kids didnt so he went to a bakery and surprised me with scones, tea and clotted cream in your courtyard which was lovely. (peace and quiet) Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, I really can not wait to come back

                                                              Wonderful stay on Most Hill

                                                              4 of 5
                                                              The house was fabulous, it's in a great position with easy access to the Main Street in Totnes, parking was easy. The house was clean and tidy with all the info to hand we needed for our stay. The only thing which stopped us giving 5 stars was a little noise from the neighbours, however it certainly didn't spoil our time on Moat Hill. We would really recommend the restaurant on the Main Street called Rumour; excellent food, wine, beer and atmosphere. We would also reccomend seeing Dartington Hall, Dartmouth and Greenway.
