The Totnes late night 'experience'!


Totnes late night shopping evenings seem to come around so quickly!!

We normally go down on the train and every year as we're shivering

on Totnes station, waiting for the train back home, I say,

' I wish we could stay down here for the night!'



Well...guess what?

That is what we did on Tuesday!

We arrived in Totnes at around 3pm .

First stop..a very leisurely and rather fine afternoon tea! ;-)






(He is one customer, waiting patiently for his Devon Cream Tea! ;-)

Vintage Tea is how tea rooms should be!

The food was 'to die for'!




We'd booked into 'The Seven Stars Hotel' for the night ...

and that didn't disappoint either!!




It was lovely.



The service was excellent, the people were friendly

... and the food, superb.




Thankfully, the weather stayed dry as we were

wandering around the town.


The usual suspects were there...




And it was so easy to get into the Christmas spirit!





Lesley's lovely shop never fails to disappoint and it was lovely

to see her for a natter.




And...




then there was display of trees in the church!

All decorated in different themes, by different organisations,

these are a delight!




There's one more chance to get to Totnes late night shopping ...

next Tuesday, 20th!

But if you can't get there, then I hope you enjoyed our little trip!

It looks like a fab night, Sal, as expected in good old Totnes. Glad you treated yourself to a stay. But did you find any goodies to take home?

Totnes looks lovely and festive. How wonderful to stay the night and not have to wait in the cold for a train home. We were in Totnes in September and thought is was a lovely town:)

Thanks for the visit Sal, I wish we were there! We have had lunch in the bar at the Seven Stars, they allow doggies in, and I have nearly booked in there once! One of the best places to visit anytime of year. T X

A great photo montage there Sal, made me homesick again.
