If you are visiting with the family, the wide array of family attractions and entertainment will not disappoint. Some of the family favourites include: Travel gently back in time in a chocolate and cream Great Western Railway coach, pulled by a real steam engine and experience the best of unspoilt Devon on the South Devon Steam Railway (www.southdevonrailway.org).

If time permits, take a stroll into Buckfastleigh, the historic mill town, and visit Buckfast Abbey (www.buckfa...
How to get there
