Tavistock

Big by Dartmoor standards, Tavistock is a town that seems to have everything - fancy restaurants, a historic market, a cinema, lots of shops and some good attractions, too. Plenty to do here on a rainy day.

Market Town

Lovely to wander around. Independent shops and market stalls. Beautiful river to walk along. Easy to walk into the town or the other way to the larger supermarkets for essentials. We really enjoyed our low key English holiday.

Tavistock - A bit of everything!

What a lovely place! Big enough to have shops like Boots and other high street chains but small enough to retain a independent feel with little boutique gift shops. It made a refreshing change after 5 solid days of holiday gift shops selling mugs and teatowels, to find somewhere that sold normal things!! We still don't know what a pannier market is, even having visited!!! Nice though!

Tavistock

Bustling market town with many independent shops. The Pannier Market is open from Tuesday to Saturday with different stalls each day. Tuesdays are good for bric a brac and antiques. Every other Saturday there is an award winning Farmer's Market in the square. Also an award winning cheeserie. A great place for foodies.

Tavistock is a lovely town with loads of interesting little shops. It's a great way to while away a couple of hours, with a leisurely lunch of course, before heading up on to the moor itself.
