Hi , I don't know it very well, my brother used to live at East Prawle, not that far away. The coastal footpath is lovely if you have good weather and a backpack to carry little one in. There are some nice pubs for bar meals, sorry can't remember any names. If the weather is grotty, there is a theme park near Totnes, called woodlands (ball pools,animal farm etc) and another ? sorley tunnel nearer kingsbridge, but I've not been to that one.
If the weather is good you have lovely beaches around salcombe and you can take a little ferry across the bay. Gara rock is one of my favourite places, also has a nice hotel that used to do good food (not been for 10 yrs). I hope someone else will be able to help a bit more !

thanks bensmum3, will keep woodlands in mind, as the english weather can be unpredictable, even in lovely devon!
