- "I booked two nights bed and breakfast at this Premier Inn, Newton Abbott whilst i was attending business meetings this September. Ideally situated near the racecourse, the room had a really powerful shower and the usual comfy refinements. Breakfasts as usual from the buffet was very good. Only 15 minutes into town for the evenings. Recommended, all you need at a great rate."
- "Although you get the feeling you are deep in the countryside it is only 5 minutes from shops and town. In lovely surroundings, close to a river, the farm is really charming, plenty of geese, chickens, goats, cows etc., on view, the staff were all welcoming and friendly and breakfasts were lovely. Recommended to anyone who wants to get away from it all, very peaceful and relaxing."
- "A centuries old inn in the heart of Devon's countryside, complete with creaky floors, fairly dated rooms and furniture. The pub itself has charm and a good atmosphere, all the staff nice and friendly, we had a great full English breakfast in the morning. There is a good evening menu and it is obviously a popular place. Wouldn't hesitate to go back - it is reported to be haunted."
Newton Abbot makes a great gateway location to explore one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of the country - Dartmoor. This thriving little market town also has a few surprises of its own too. With much to see and do combining both new and old, the town's location near the south Devon coast and pleasant amenities make it an excellent place to spend some time.
With a long history steeped in trade, particularly in wool and leather, Newton Abbot is enormously well connected with good transport links to neighbouring Torquay and Exeter, and surprisingly easy to reach from elsewhere in the country. The town was also home to the South Devon Railway Works, and whilst these no longer exist, the railway remains a strong part of Newton Abbot's identity.
The town boasts a number of landmarks and places of interest, from Alexandra Theatre and the many almshouses to the Newton Abbot Town and GWR Museum. An historic Cheese and Onion Fayre is also held in honour of St Leonard at the beginning of September, with many other celebrations and festivals throughout the year.
The town is also ideally situated to reach the coast for a spot of sunbathing or sailing, as well as Dartmoor National Park for some climbing, cycling and hiking.
For those who prefer to take it easy, Newton Abbot also has plenty of shopping and places to dine as well as many traditional English pubs in which to enjoy a well-deserved pint.
