During Your Stay

Day 1 – We head to the beautiful Georgian city of Bath, voted the best small city in Britain. Enjoy the stunning architecture and famous Roman Baths before we continue to our hotel in Tiverton.

Day 2 – This morning we visit Sidmouth, the smartest and most exclusive seaside resort in Devon. With a flat promenade and thriving town centre, the morning will simply sail by. We then retrace our steps to Tiverton Wharf where we have arranged a cruise along the idyllic Grand Western Canal on the last horse-drawn barge trip in the South West – a little bit of ‘heaven’ in Devon!

Day 3 – After breakfast we visit the medieval village of Dunster before continuing to the coastal resort of Minehead. Here we will enjoy a nostalgic steam train journey through the glorious Somerset courtesy of the West Somerset Railway, the longest heritage railway in England! At Bishop's Lydeard our coach will be waiting to return us to Tiverton.

Day 4 – We visit Exmouth for free time. This afternoon we have arranged a River Exe circular cruise departing from the Marina. Our cruise features live commentary on the sights, history and wildlife of the surrounding area so all you have to do is sit back and relax.

Day 5 – After a leisurely morning we travel to Worcester. The city is best known for its magnificent Cathedral, which rises majestically above the sparkling River Severn. After some free time, we continue our journey home.
