A couple of nights in Devon

Hi all,

I'm going to spend a couple of nights in Devon before moving on to Cornwall. I enjoy lovely gardens and picturesque towns. Can anyone please recommend a good place to stay?

Lots of choice, but I would recommend Totnes in south Devon, a great starting point to visit many other places within easy reach, for instance Dartmouth. As for gardens, Coleton Fishacre Garden near Brixham is always lovely whatever time of year, plus Overbecks at Salcombe, both National Trust Properties, so you can check them out on the website. Some friends stayed at Four Seasons Guest House in Totnes, they enjoyed it there. A bit more up market would be The Royal Seven Stars Hotel.

Try Lower Thornton Farm, Kenn near Exeter. It's an excellent B&B, listed on TA, very quiet and peaceful and yet just a couple of miles from all the main routes, A38, M5, A30. Very easy to reach all of Devon's attractions from here.

http://www.lotstodo.co.uk/ will give you some ideas of places to visit.

South Devon Railway from Buckfast to Totnes runs along a beautiful river valley.
