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!

It is located in a very quiet spot near Harberton which itself is near Totnes. The location is perfect for trips to the coast and to Dartmoor. Our favourite spot was Startpoint and hiking around the steep cliffs but Dartmoor is also a very special place and great for hiking and having a cream tea later. In the barn there was five of us (2 adults, 3 kids aged 6, 10, 12) which was fine but it is better suited for 4. Clare and Den are really lovely and helpful hosts. They discussed our plans for the day with us and made suggestions on what to see and how to get there. The kids had a great time playing with the dogs and cats and feeding the fish (literally).

It's was lovely and peaceful, after attending an event at Blackpool sands it's was good to get back to some home comforts, Giles was a great host.

The whole booking experience was pleasant from start to finish. The property is tastefully decorated and very spacious for us, a family of 4 (Our children are aged 2 and 4). The roof garden is an added bonus. It was very well equipped, with a great kitchen diner. The owner also kindly left us some basic foods and treats which we were very grateful for. The property is in a fantastic location. Perfect for exploring Totnes and the surrounding areas. It was the perfect base for our exploration of Dartmoor and the surrounding beaches. The off street parking made it even more convenient for us. We had a great stay in this lovely property and will definitely book again if we're ever in the area. I would highly recommend it for everyone! Families, couples, friends. It's a beautiful apartment that's a perfect 'home from home'!
