Bideford & Clovelly 5 Days - Durrant House Hotel
Bideford's historic quayside was once amongst the busiest in England, and its most famous landmark is its bridge; the 24 arches have spanned the Torridge since the Middle Ages. Today it is a relaxing town, with many reminders of its maritime heritage. Tintagel, also knows as Trevena, is a place of legend, reputedly the birthplace of King Arthur. Today it is a busy village surrounded by dramatic coastal landscapes. A highlight of the tour is the delightfully preserved private village of Clovelly, with its single cobbled street, as well as offering an insight into the creation of beautiful crystal glass at Torrington.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
