Thinking about a weekend break in Devon but can't face the long drive - well then why not let the train take the strain! There are fast direct trains to Totnes from across the UK (only 20 minutes from our properties in Stoke Fleming) and if you book them ahead you can get your ticket for a great price too. (try www.thetrainline.com for some fantastic deals). You can pick up car-hire from the station or get a taxi.
If you're heading down to Devon from London, First Great Western offer the outstanding Pullman Fine Dining Service on the 18.03 and 19.03 services from London Paddington. The journey is only 2 hours 45 minutes, an ideal amount of time to enjoy an delectable 3-course dinner. As the UK's only on-train fine dining restaurant still in service it really is a very special experience. Award-winning (& Dartmouth's very own) restaurateur and chef Mitch Tonks has created a menu using wonderful local produce including the seafood of the South West which he strongly believes to be the finest in the world. The wines have been chosen from the wine list of his award-winning Seahorse restaurant in Dartmouth and have been matched with the food.
