 Moving to Totnes 

Totnes is a beautiful, sought-after seaside town in South Ham’s, Devon. The entire area is immersed in beauty, with estuaries and forests scattered throughout the land.

Key Points:

·         Totnes had its own currency, the Totnes Pound, which has only recently fallen out of circulation in June 2019.

·         Totnes is only a 25-minute drive from Torquay, which provides train links to major cities around the UK. Not only this, but many who move here will find a job in Torquay and commute daily, whether that be by the train station in Totnes or by car.

·         If you’re a lover of trains, an actual steam railway will take you from Totnes to Buckfastleigh.

·         Totnes is a stunning location. River Dart meanders through the centre of Totnes; the sea is only a short drive away and  the beautiful town of Salcombe is to the south.,

Totnes’ first recorded history was in 907AD when it’s first castle was built. Fast forward to the 12th century, and it has become an important market town within the area.

Nowadays, Totnes is known for an altogether different reason. Many question whether it is the most eccentric town in Britain.

An incredibly artistic and alternative place, if you connect with Totnes on another level, then this is definitely the place for you.

Property Prices

On the whole, Totnes is seen as a reasonably expensive area to live in. The average property price is nowhere near its close neighbour Salcombe; however, it is still higher than the average price in Devon, which stands at £300,364.

Over the past year, Totnes has seen a 5.14% increase in property price, and over the past five years, it’s seen a 21.39% increase. Property here is booming, and statistics show that it has been for some time.

The average price for property in Salcombe stood at £395,693. In terms of property types, flats in Totnes sold for an average of £245,014 and terraced houses for £308,123. This is according to Zoopla statistics in November 2019.


Totnes doesn’t have the best schools in the South Hams area, but they are also far from the worse.

When it comes to primary schools, Totnes has one of the best in the area, The Grove School. This school received an ‘outstanding’ from Ofsted, while On Track Education Centre received a ‘good’ rating and the other two in the area ‘require improvement’.

If you’re looking for secondary education, local children find themselves jumping on the bus and heading to one of the local secondary schools. There are many in Totnes including King Edward VI Community College, which received a ‘good’ rating from Ofsted. Many children could end up heading towards Brixton, Paignton or even Torquay depending on their educational requirements.

Just up the road from Totnes is Schumacher College for any further education needs. Otherwise, there are other local colleges in the surrounding areas such as South Devon College in Paignton.

Living here

Totnes is surrounded by designed Areas of Natural Beauty (AONB), mainly located to the south. This being said, Totnes itself is a stunning town with a 15th century sandstone church and picturesque rolling hills wherever you look.

If you’re fed up of chain consumerism then this is the place to be. Yes, there are some big chains here but it stops there. There are plenty of individual quirky cafes, restaurants and boutiques meaning unique items are the norm over here.

Totnes is really something magical. It’s unique spirit attracts almost everyone who visits here and its fine art scene convinces many to stay.
