A sampler’s delight – the cheesy, the sticky and the alcoholic! Add to that a Cream Tea and you may need to bring the calorie card! Add beautiful rustic West Country scenery and we have the recipe for a lovely 5 days.
Thursday Great scenery as we travel cross country to the West Country with the highlight being a drive down Cheddar Gorge. Whilst in Cheddar we visit the Cheddar Cheese Company for a demonstration of cheese making and a tasting.
Friday Into North Devon for a visit to the Quince Honey Farm to see how honey is produced and harvested. Then on to Barnstaple for some time in this historic town, maybe visit the Pannier Market for some local produce! We return to the hotel with a scenic drive through Exmoor National Park via Lynton, Minehead and the Brendan Hills.
Saturday To nearby Sheppys to sample some traditional Somerset Cider. Then it is on to the county city of Exeter for the remainder of day. Great shopping and history.
Sunday Over the Blackdown Hills to the Jurassic Coast and the Victorian resort of Sidmouth where we have time to explore. Later we enjoy our final food stop of the tour as we enjoy a Cream Tea in the lovely surroundings of an historic mill.
Monday We return home with a stop in the delightful little city of Wells with its wonderful cathedral.
