Days 2 -4: At leisure in Sidmouth with two included excursions.
Totnes, Buckfastleigh & Bovey Tracey:
From Sidmouth your first stop will be Totnes with free time before continuing onto Buckfastleigh. For those who wish to visit the Butterfly & Otter Sanctuary your driver will drop you here and collect later. Admission for seniors is approx. £7.50 (not inc).
Butterfly Farm and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary is a friendly south Devon attraction, run by a small dedicated team. Their aim is to make your visit educational and fun. You can enjoy and learn about tropical butterflies in the specially designed habitat of which you become part. You not only see the butterflies but feel the rainforest atmosphere that they enjoy as you see their amazing life cycle unfold. In the Otter Sanctuary there are three species of otter to see, our native British otter, the playful Asian short clawed otters and the large North American river otters who love to show off. The keeper is on hand to explain all about the otters to visitors, some are here for breeding, some for retirement, some just for fun and some because they are unsuitable to be returned to the wild.
The coach will continue onto Bovey Tracey for a look round and return to collect from Buckfastleigh later. Returning to the hotel late afternoon.
