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, a 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 (Friday and Saturday) and there are many cafes, restaurants
and pubs and a wide range of independent food shops.
