Itinerary

Sunday We travel from Cornwall to Torquay and arrive during the afternoon to a warm welcome. We enjoy a lunch break en-route.

Monday Today we visit the ancient fishing town of Brixham. There will be time to stroll the harbour or see the famous Golden Hind ship. During our time here we enjoy a sea-fari boat trip to bask in the breathtaking coastal scenery of Torbay while we search for a vast array of wildlife. We return to Torquay in the afternoon.

Tuesday Today we travel to the riverside town of Dartmouth, famous for its regatta and its unique style. We have time to enjoy the quayside and cobbled streets before taking the ferry to Kingswear and joining the South Devon Railway for a scenic railway journey to Paignton.

Wednesday Today’s excursion takes in the riverside town of Totnes and allows time for lunch at the peaceful Buckfast Abbey. In the afternoon we have a tour of rugged Dartmoor.

Thursday After breakfast we make our way along the coast via Dawlish to Powderham Castle. One of Devon’s oldest family homes, the castle resides in a unique, picturesque setting within an ancient deer park beside the Exe estuary. We see over 600 years of history within its solid walls.
