Dairy Cows

 The 480 acre Dairy and Sheep farm is part of the Duke of Somerset's Estate, which is also near the village of Berry Pomeroy, famous for its haunted castle! The fields and lanes run down to the banks of the River Dart.

 

Only 1 mile (15-20 minutes walk) from Totnes - an Historic town with narrow streets, ancient buildings and friendly individual shops ranging from the traditional to the unusual, which reflects the character of this lovely Elizabethan Town. Why not visit the Craft & Antique Markets for a unique memento of your stay in Totnes. There are buses to the town as well as further afield in South Devon.

 

Totnes is an ideal centre for visiting Dartmoor, Torbay and the beautiful coast and village's of South Devon. There are many tourists attractions - Castles, steam railways, National Trust properties, leisure centres and golf courses are within easy reach. For keen walkers the South Devon Coastal Path is breathtaking, both for the views and steep inclines!

 

Totnes Castle (English Heritage) - Originally built by Judhel, the Norman overlord of Totnes, the castle has dominated the town for hundreds of years. From the top you can enjoy magnificent views in every direction, and appreciate the castle's superb defensive position

 

A trip on the River Dart to Dartmouth a must for visitors. The ultimate excursion from Totnes is undoubtedly the 12 mile cruise down the estuary of the Dart to the historic port of Dartmouth. Relax as you sail gently past salt marshes, hanging woods, rounded hills and quiet waterside villages, watching for herons, cormorants, kingfishers, Canada geese and grey seals. You soon feel as if you are far away from contemporary noise and confusion, out of sight of main roads and traffic. The river is rich in history and folklore, with stories that grow taller with each telling.

River Dart
There are the mansions of Sharpham, Sandridge and Waddeton, and Agatha Christies home at Greenway. See the ghostly wreck of a paddle steamer, the rock where Sir Walter Raleigh smoked one of his many 'first pipes', and the ancient yew tree at Stoke Gabriel. The Journey takes an hour and a quarter.
