The historic market town of Totnes lies on the River Dart and is surrounded by tumbling hills and ancient woodland. Once a centre for wealthy merchants, today, Totnes is a hub for artists, painters and musicians, and has a thriving “New Age” community. The busy high street is crammed with shops, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, and the civic square hosts regular bazaars and flea markets. Totnes castle - a classic Norman motte and bailey hill fort - sits proudly at the top of the town with sweeping views across the rooftops towards the river. Nearby is the splendid maritime town of Dartmouth, and the romantic ruins of Berry Pomeroy Castle. Totnes is home to some of our loveliest holiday cottages, all placed right in the heart of the beautiful South Hams.
