SUNNY DEVON

It was with a heavy heart that I boarded the Paddington train leaving a sunny Totnes behind. Although this was my first visit, Totnes felt very much like an old friend. I guess having a Plymouth-born father makes me feel sentimental about anywhere in Devon. I know. Me, sentimental. Who’d of thought it?

I enjoyed exploring the shops, side streets, Friday market and antiques fair. I even broke my self-imposed knick-knack ban when a kitsch figurine at Narnia completely stole my heart! Totnes is a wonderful place to get lost in, and can definitely recommend a visit, or two.

    Ooh it looks lovely! We're heading to Devon next month to explore the East coast (Exeter is currently top of the charts for places we might move to….) and I was hoping to visit Totnes – it's where Jane Foster and Alice Apple live πŸ™‚

    Can't believe the difference in the blooms! I live in Scotland, our plants are NOWHERE NEAR blooming like that!! The difference of geography.

    My kind of town! We haven't been to Devon/Cornwall for years (can't face the mammoth car journey with the nippers) but I used to holiday in Devon as a child lots so I feel like I should introduce them to it soon. Glad you had chance to get your camera out xx

      I'm sure it would be worth the long journey. I try to visit every year, I don't always get as far as Cornwall, but Devon has just as many treasures to explore!

    Gosh those houses look super, think I might be needing a visit! πŸ™‚ x

    Fabulous photos of Totnes. I live in Devon so no stranger to 'Totnes, Twinned with Narnia'. You should come to Topsham, much smaller than Totnes but lots of lovely independent shops, and on the water – you'd love it!

    I've never been, but it looks beautiful! I love the pastel coloured houses and the narrow streets. Your photos are so pretty πŸ™‚ xx

    You have way more self control than I do to only pick up one doodad on this trip! It's so lovely to see how much you appreciate all the wonderful places in your country!

    Beautiful photographs.I love the independent shops and the river. You've inspired me to visit again soon. Someone told me recently that someone opened a cat cafe (for felines) in Totnes! I'll have to see if it's still there.
