    Not the easiest place to find or get to - down narrow lanes - but well worth the trouble! The audio tour keeps you captivated with the amazing history of the property and ceates a great atmospheric tour.

    The small cafe is independant of English Heritage but serves lovely cakes and we would recommend the cream tea, which was very reasonably priced for two.

    A multitude of rooms, all different, all authentic... the attention to detail is extraordinary, not a single misstep anywhere. This type of excellence is rare and demonstrates what is possible. I take my hat off to the artist...I will be returning...

    Cannot fault the friendliness of the staff, their knowledge of their products and processes, nor could you be disappointed with the majority of their produce. Definitely a good reason to buy British, though wine wise they will struggle price point wise to compete with equally good wine from the mass market. It's definitely an uphill struggle for these vineyards on that front.

    The cheeses were gorgeous and well worth buying. The same can be said for their chutneys etc.

    Wine value for money aside, the other disappointment is with the website booking process. We pre-booked as suggested, so as to get a timeslot, but when we arrived the staff weren't clear on the option we chose via that website. The options were also slightly misleading and perhaps could be worded better to clearly state what to expect on the day. Minor "glitches" per se, rather than anything drastic and this shouldn't distract travellers from the attentiveness and warm welcoming that you will receive.

    One final point, as of 2022, the location will change. Check their website for details and we wish them well. As with most places off the beaten track in Devon, the roads are more suited to using a pick axe to climb than a car. Take care on the roads and don't expect to arrive there quickly.

    First time visiting the gardens - it's worth going on a Friday when they do a free garden tour - very interesting to learn of the history. I can imagine the garden is beautiful to visit at other times of the year to see the various different flowers coming to life. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit - the gardens felt very peaceful too.

    Didn’t know the market was on so great find. We parked in the car park by the market which I’m glad to say still uses real money. Lots of different stalls food produce, bric a brac, plants & lots more.

    A really great place to visit and taste some really good craft beers while eating a takeaway from the Asian restaurant across the road. The staff are really informed, helpful and very friendly. What's not to like? We always visit every year we come to Totnes...our holiday wouldn't be the same otherwise.

    This area is stunningly beautiful with hidden gems to be found around every corner.
    I came here when I was a young boy and thought it might have changed for the worse but after 40 years or so, I assure you it's still as beautiful as ever.
    The coastal routes are delightful, however a little narrow and hair-raising at times.
    I can't beieve they run double decker buses through the most narrowest of roads, it's somewhat uncomfortable to think that after following a single track lane with high hedges for the last 3 miles, you come across the No.*** Totnes to Salcombe double decker bus facing you around the bend, head on, with nowhere to go but in reverse!!! The only drawback but the area certainly pays its dividends in full. Will always recommend the area, may be not the narrow lanes! ha! ha! Be warned!

    We saw a board on the high street saying it was open so we followed the signs to the back of the church . It was just closing but we were welcomed in and told we could walk round . The hall was very impressive as was the council chamber . Good to also see the cells and the robes .

    I booked this for my brother as a birthday present as he loves goats, and he was not disappointed. Both me and my brother are 19, and we found it very entertaining being with all the animals and finding out loads about the farm.
    The goat milking was very good, and it was funny interacting with the animals. We saw 1 week old calf’s as we were also shown around the farm.
    The people there were all lovely and welcoming, and we will definitely be back again! Also we bought some of the produce there and it’s all very tasty!

    Totnes Castle is situated in the town centre, if you are driving, then there are pay and display car parks only a couple of minutes walk away.
    There isn't a great deal to see at Totnes Castle, all that remains is the shell wall of the keep, but the view from the top of the keep is stunning.
    The walk around the moat is nice and peaceful, I'd say that most people would spend less than an hour here.
    If you have driven to Totnes then I'd recommend visiting Berry Pomeroy Castle too which is only a 15 minutes drive away.

    We were on holiday in the area and we both like to drink cider, so thought we would book on to a tour.
    It was led by the chief cider maker as everyone else that normally does the tour was busy (probably at the Devon County Show) i forgot his name sorry.
    He spoke with such enthusiasm and passion, he was fantastic. The samples after were as people have said before, plentiful and tasted very nice.
    The plans for the company going forward sound exciting and when we are on holiday in the area again we will visit. In the mean time I have online ordering to look forward to.
