If you’re looking for a holiday, short break or day trip that combines history, beautiful countryside, independent shopping and local food & drink you’ll find it in Totnes. This unique and charming market town sits in the heart of South Devon and has an international reputation for its lively and diverse community. The atmosphere is cosmopolitan but with a distinctly rustic West Country flavour, and this makes it a remarkable place to visit for its heritage, culture and beautiful setting.

Turn any corner in Totnes and you’ll find something special. The town is reputed to have more listed buildings per head of the population than anywhere else in Britain, and a stroll around Totnes is an attraction in itself.

There are markets on Fridays and Saturdays, an Elizabethan market each Tuesday morning (May-September) and the award winning Sunday Good Food Market every third Sunday of the month. With river trips on the Dart, museums, a steam railway, art galleries and much more, you’ll never run out of things to do in and around Totnes.
