Torbay is one of our favourite resorts, especially in the run up to Christmas when all of the hotels offer a full entertainment package! We have hotels in Paignton, 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, and Torquay, a traditional British seaside town with vibrancy and great views. 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!
First Day To Devon and a 2 hour lunchtime stop in Exeter, full of character and ancient history.
Tours whilst at resort:
A A scenic tour of Dartmoor with its rugged, desolate beauty. We begin with a morning stop at House of Marbles and then we make a short stop at the National Park Visitor Centre in Princetown where there are exciting exhibitions, or you can get a coffee nearby. Then to 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 Totnes, a captivating town set on one of Britain’s most picturesque waterways. We return to Torbay completing a scenic, circular tour.
Last Day We return home taking in views of Torbay and the Exe Estuary with its fine views. We pass through Teignmouth and make a lunch time stop in Dawlish.
5 Day tour includes a free day.
