Holiday Summary

  • Travel Type: Coach

The South Devon Railway is one of Devon's and the West Country's best loved tourist attractions and is the longest established steam railway in the south west.

You can easily spend the whole day on the South Devon Railway because we're far more than a train ride!

The line, which is operated mainly by dedicated volunteers, runs for seven miles from Buckfastleigh to Totnes in South Devon along the stunning valley of the river Dart. The journey takes you through beautiful, unspoilt countryside rich in wildlife and well away from roads.

With a backdrop of Dartmoor and beautiful Devon hills, at Buckfastleigh we have a museum, historic steam and diesel locomotives and rolling stock, a play area, gardens, riverside walks, a picnic area and lots to see as well as our Refreshment Rooms and Expressway model and gift shop with its new model railway. Dartmoor Otters & Buckfast Butterflies are also at Buckfastleigh station.

The train pauses at Staverton, a wayside country station that takes you back to the days when life was slower and quieter.

Our station at Totnes has been built entirely from buildings and artifacts rescued from GWR stations all around the west. The award-winning Totnes Rare Breeds Farm is right next to our station.

Free time in Totnes.
