By Wyndham Vacation Rentals


Totnes has a unique laid back atmosphere, lovely river side setting and a rich historical past.

Set in the rolling red-earthed hills of South Devon, the market town of Totnes offers a fascinating history and is often referred to as one of Devon''s gems. The town is full of colour and character with individual, quirky shops, cafes and restaurants that sell local produce and a twice weekly market on Fridays and Saturdays. At the picturesque quay you can take ferry trips down the River Dart to Dartmouth.

Visitors to Totnes have a choice of two castles; Berry Pomeroy Castle is rumoured to be the most haunted castle in England while Totnes Castle is well worth the climb up to the castle keep, where you''ll be rewarded with sweeping views of the town across to the River Dart.

For a day out with a difference, the Sharpham Vineyard and Cheese Dairy is highly recommended, and China Blue is perfect for a rainy day, where you can create and paint your own pottery and shop for unique gifts and home wares.

There’s plenty going on from your Totnes cottage; you''ll find a wide range of things to see and do nearby, but if history and visitor attractions aren''t your thing, grab your walking boots and head off into the Dartmoor countryside or enjoy a taste of the fresh sea air; you''ll be sure to find a welcoming watering hole along the way to enjoy a spot of lunch and a pint of the local ale.
