Places to see, things to do

Local Attractions:

Dartmoor National Park – Dartmoor National Park is the largest area of open country in England covering some 368 square miles. It is an exceptionally beautiful place to visit at any time of the year, with wide expanses of open moorland, wooded gorges and tumbling rocky rivers.

Buckfast Abbey – A modern Benedictine Abbey with wonderful stained glass windows and gardens. The famous Buckfast tonic wine and honey can be purchased in the gift and produce shops.

The Butterfly Farm and Otter Sanctuary – Situated near the South Devon Steam Railway station. Feed the otters and enjoy the wonderful butterflies in a tropical setting. You can even be an otter keeper for the day!

South Devon Railway – Relax and enjoy the unspoilt views of the river Dart from the comfort of a South Devon Railway, steam or vintage diesel train from Buckfastleigh to Totnes.

Towns:

ASHBURTON– A very attractive Stannary town dating from Saxon times. It has a superb selection of antique and craft outlets, together with many interesting shops and eating places, and a lovely bakery, making fresh bread and cakes daily.

BUCKFASTLEIGH Vibrant, lively and with a touch of mystery surrounding it, you’ll discover that Buckfastleigh is one of the most diverse towns in South Devon. The town is dominated by the Benedictine Buckfast Abbey and is a mix of ancient and modern attractions surrounded by miles of prime Devon countryside, wild moorlands and hidden valleys to explore.

TOTNES – An Elizabethan market town with lots of interesting shops and eating places and the ruins of a Norman castle. From the quay take a relaxing boat trip to Dartmouth.

DARTMOUTH– Only a 35 minute drive away, Dartmouth is a Historic town full of narrow streets, art galleries, delicatessens and other interesting shops. It is home to the world renown Britannia Royal Naval College.

BIGBURY ON SEA & BURGH ISLAND - Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bigbury on Sea beach is ideal for family holidays. Dusted with sand and lapped by shallow waters, the beach offers safe fun for groups particularly if you’ve got children in tow. In addition, Bigbury on Sea beach is dotted with rock pools, so there’s plenty of creepy-crawly entertainment for budding marine biologists. While this beach is popular with families, there are a number of facilities and activities available if you’re seeking a bit more excitement on your holiday.

Burgh Island sitting on its own tidal island like a shining white liner this art deco hotel gem in its heyday drew Noel Coward and Agatha Christie who inspired by its isolated location wrote two of her books here.

 

Pridhamsleigh Cavern: Opposite Pridhamsleigh Manor Farm is Pridhamsleigh Cavern this is the second longest cave system in Devon and has been accessible for at least 2 centuries. It was presumably revealed, like most Devon caves, by quarrying. A large entrance portal leads to an insignificant crawl into the rest of the system - about 700 metres of so of complex, maze like muddy passages through which a variety of routes can be taken. If you wish to visit the cave we would advise going with a local guide as the cavern can be difficult.

Please approach by approved route through the orchard containing the ancient dove cote. There is a fee of £1.50 to the farmer payable down the chute in the wooden kiosk at the gated entrance.
