About the neighbourhood
If you are visiting with the family, the wide array of family attractions and entertainment will not disappoint. Some of the family favourites include:

The line from Totnes to Buckfastleigh closely follows the banks of the River Dart. Whilst in Buckfastleigh a visit to the Butterfly Centre where you can see butterflies in tropical surroundings and the Otter Sanctuary (www.ottersandbutterflies.co.uk) where you can see otters swimming underwater are well worthwhile.
