Walk to Dartington


Overview

A level trail from Totnes to The Shops at Dartington where you can stop for some retail therapy and refreshment before you return. Part of this route is accessible to all.

Start the path at Totnes Bridge, follow the riverside path past Totnes Weir. Below the weir is a sandbank, a resting point at low tide for gulls, ducks and wildfowl.

Wildlife along the route may include cormorants, swans, seals and the elusive otter.

Continue on the cycle trail, alongside Queen’s Marsh or extend the walk through Dartington Estate where you will discover beautiful formal gardens, a tiltyard and several sculptures, including one by Henry Moore.

Ben’s Farm Shop

Originally conceived over 35 years ago, when Ben himself sold his homemade sausages at Totnes Market, Ben’s Farm Shops focus on providing ‘good food from good farming’. In practical terms, that means that the produce we sell in our shops and the food we serve in our cafés is sourced directly from the producers/growers, is as local as possible, often organic and always just plain delicious. We stock a range of store cupboard essentials, meat from our butchery, a selection of fruit and veg, dairy products, wines, beers and much more. What better excuse do you need to step away from the supermarket trolley and shop local!
