Torbay is one of our faviourite resorts, especially in the run up to Christmas when all of the hotels offer a full entertainment package! Paignton is a lovely seaside resort with a level esplanade leading to a small harbour, and there are fine views over Torbay with its vivid blue sea and sky. As well as the beautiful coastline, our tours will show us much of Devon’s enchanting countryside and this year’s itinerary is packed full of interest! This year we have added a new hotel, the Belgrave Sands, and like all these hotels has been receiving amazing feedback.
First Day To Devon and a 2 hour lunchtime stop in Exeter, full of character and ancient history.
Tours at resort
a A scenic tour of Dartmoor with its rugged, desolate beauty. We begin by making a short coffee stop (not included) in Houes of Marbles near Bovey Tracey. Then we have a choice, either visit Tavistock, an attractive town with an ancient indoor Pannier Market.
b We cross the River Dart by boat and visit Dartmouth in its beautiful setting between steep hills and the picturesque harbour. Then a scenic coastal drive takes us to Salcombe which is located in the most southerly part of Devon and surrounded by magnificent coastal scenery. The vibrant town boats great shops and cafes and all with great views across the estuary. We complete a circular tour by returning to Paignton via Totnes.
Last Day Following a short morning stop at Buckfast Abbey, we return home with a stop in Clarks Shopping Village in Street.
