Plymouth (an hours drive or 40 mins train from Totnes) has just opened ‘the Box’ museum and art gallery which is part of a major £40 million redevelopment scheme for the city’s regeneration. The city’s hoe area has great views for walks by the sea and leads down to the Barbican area which is full of restaurants and bars situated next to the famous Mayflower steps where the pilgrims set sail for the Americas. The Royal William Yard is also an incredible place for dining by the sea with views over to Cornwall. When the weather is good, it’s possible to catch a small fishing boat ferry from here over to the Cornish fishing village of Cawsand which is a beautiful charming little village to explore.

If you’re feeling extra adventurous then East Cornwall is not too far way to explore and is an absolute wonder. Highlights include the world famous Eden Project biodome and The Lost Gardens of Heligan in St Austell. The ancient Cornish capital of Lostwithiel is home to (arguably) the biggest little museum in Cornwall and also the spectacular Restormel Castle ruins (approx 1 ¾ hours drive/1.5 hours train from Totnes.)

National Trust - Killerton
Exeter is a charming city to walk around; from the town centre with its majestic cathedral and Cathedral Green surrounded by cafés and restaurants to Exeter key with lively restaurants and bars and a starting point for some picturesque walks along the river with energetic river sports going alongside. It’s also great for shopping and has a mixture of independent boutiques, large high street stores in its attractively designed pedestrianised shopping quarter and high-end department stores.

Brixham is highly recommended for spectacular walks around the harbour (including a lighthouse) amazing freshly caught fish and the famous Golden Hind ship (which is also a popular museum.) Its not to be missed! There are many good restaurants in Brixham, a popular one in the area is Rockfish but there are plenty to choose from. If you fancy cooking some freshly caught fish, you can’t go wrong with Stefan’s Quality fishmongers (6 Middle Street Brixham - near the town centre.)

The historic market town of Totnes is a 20 minute drive and is accessible also by public transport (gold bus from Paignton bus station or near Paignton zoo.) Every Friday and Saturday there is an enormous flea market in the main square at the top of the high street. It’s usually very eclectic and a food lovers heaven! There is also a specific food market on the 3rd Sunday of each month. The town itself prides itself on its fair trade status and has a huge array of independent shops lining the high street. Totnes castle is also a stones through from the town centre and is one of the best examples of a Norman motte and bailey castle in England. It’s worth if you have the time to relax or walk by the River Dart from Steamer Quay which is across the bridge away from the main high street. There are some nice places to stop and get refreshments by the river and the views on the walks are also breathtaking.
