Buckfastleigh, Devon

Buckfastleigh is a sweet little town on the southern edge of Dartmoor National Park; if you’re in these parts on your large group holiday in Devon, visiting Dartmoor Otters and Buckfast Butterflies or Buckfast Abbey, allow time for a stroll around. The town is one of those places where you feel that nothing much has changed for years, but in the best possible way; the pace of life is relaxed and unhurried, there’s no need to be looking over your shoulder, no need to worry. Wander the narrow streets, browse the local shops, stop for a home cooked lunch or a slice of cake in the Singing Kettle or sit beside the River Dart and tuck into traditional pub food at The Abbey Inn.

Go up to Buckfastleigh station and you can have a lovely experience – a ride on an old-fashioned steam train with South Devon Railway! Climb on board and sit back as you pootle through the glorious countryside to Totnes for a mooch about.
