To finish the current stay in the Dartmouth area, we decided to go for a river trip up to Totnes. The river is tidal so available sailings and returns need to be checked. If you need to stay a while in Totnes and there is...More

For £28 (for two) we had a great cruise from Dartmouth up to Totnes. The view was beautiful, commentary informative and fun. We enjoyed the day, both Dartmouth and Totnes are arty, unusual and well worth the boat run up the river (1.5 hours).
