The historic and ancient borough of Totnes rises from a prominent position next to the beautiful river Dart. Its origins from Norman, Medieval and Tudor times are still clearly evident in the fine array of well preserved buildings throughout the town displaying lots of the original architectural detailing and features of their period.
Totnes is a thriving and vibrant town offering an eclectic mix of cultural, recreational and retail experiences to suit all tastes. It has become just as well known for its arts and crafts as it has for its acceptance of alternative lifestyles and its high quality galleries and boutiques.
There is a choice of primary and secondary schools within the area including the well renowned King Edward VI Community College (KEVICC) and the alternative Rudolph Steiner School.
Strong public transport links are provided with bus services radiating out to neighbouring towns and a railway station situated on the main line which links Penzance with London Paddington. The A38 Devon Expressway is also within reach for commuting to Plymouth, Exeter and beyond via the M5 Motorway. Exeter possesses an international airports and Plymouth has a ferry port with services to Roscoff in France and Santander in Spain.
The A38 flanks Dartmoor National Park, a beautiful and unspoilt tract of protected open space. In the opposite direction, to the east, are the attractive holiday resort towns of Torbay and to the south the beautiful South Hams coastline and countryside.
