Totnes

Totnes

A truly unique market town with a thoroughly charming character, Totnes has an alternative, bohemian ‘vibe’, which is felt throughout the town’s organic, ethical and Fairtrade produce, the delightful boutique shops, independent businesses, street markets and the quirky local population. This beautiful region of Devon is known as the English Riviera and provides visitors with a quiet and tranquil setting for recharging batteries. The town is proud of its rich history, musical and artistic heritage and for its serene location at the head of the River Dart, with easy access to the seaside towns of Torquay and Paignton, as well as the bustling city of Exeter. Dartmoor National Park is also within easy reach and provides a vast swath of moorland for visitors to explore, hike or cycle.

We love Totnes because...

  • Bohemian ‘vibe’
  • Organic, ethical produce
  • Close to Exeter

In and around Totnes

Totnes Castle

This majestic castle is reminiscent of a fairy tale, with crenelated walls and a commanding position atop a hill overlooking the town. It was built by a lieutenant of William the Conqueror, Juhel of Totnes in the 11th century and is one of the best-preserved examples of a Norman motte-and-bailey castle in England. Today the castle is owned by English Heritage and open to the public, where visitors can climb the battlements and curtain wall, which offers spectacular views over the surrounding area.

Babbacombe Model Village

Britain’s largest miniature model village, feel like a giant as you explore the thousands of tiny buildings, vehicles and animated sequences which detail the past, present and future of England. The intricate details make this attraction one of a kind, with the world coming to life at night as home lights turn on and street lamps light up. The 4 acres of ground contain over 1,000 feet of model train tracks as well as over 400 models.

Kents Cavern

One of the top prehistoric sites of human activity in Europe, this Stone Age cave is a labyrinth of deep caverns to explore. A 40,000-year-old Homo sapien’s jawbone found here could indicate that the cave is one of the first sites in Northern Europe to be populated by humans. Visitors can take a guided tour of the caves, where the history of this local landmark is explained in detail and children have the chance to try their hand at some archaeology.
