is a lively and friendly town surrounded by beautiful countryside.
The river Dart flows through the town and there are lovely walks
and cycle paths up and down the river. A ferry boat goes down to
Dartmouth and there is a steam train up to Buckfastleigh.
30 minutes away to
the south is the South Devon coast with its spectacular cliffs and
sandy beaches. 30 minutes to the north is Dartmoor, the National
Park with forests and open moorland.
Totnes has a thriving
high street and it is a good place in which to shop. There are markets
on two days of the week and there are many cafes, restaurants
and pubs and a wide range of independent food shops.
