Totnes, Devon

This town of two bridges on the River Dart makes for a good day trip, with a variety of independent shops, markets and galleries to mooch around. There’s heaps of history to soak up with an Elizabethan Museum and a Fashion & Textiles Museum, plus lots of attractive ancient buildings around the town. Take a boat trip or a ride on a steam train through the beautiful countryside and return to the Steam Packet Inn, Waterside Bistro or Fat Lemons Café for some good chow.
