Offering a warm West Country welcome, this hotel sits in two-and-a-half acres of mature gardens and is ideally located for exploring Devon & Somerset. All of the en-suite bedrooms are equipped with TV, telephone, iron & ironing board, free wifi and tea/coffee making facilities. The hotel offers a restaurant and bar. Sorry No Lift, however, ground floor bedrooms may be available.
We enjoy an excursion which takes us to the stylish resort of Sidmouth, situated on the Jurassic Coast, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. Following some free time here we make our way to the seaside resort of Exmouth, in time for our River Exe circular cruise, with live commentary on the sights, history and wildlife of the surrounding area.
We make our way through the delightful Exmoor National Park making a stop in the unique medieval village of Dunster, which has over 200 listed buildings. Following this visit we continue to the coastal resort of Minehead. While here, we enjoy a nostalgic train ride through glorious Somerset countryside on the West Somerset Railway to Bishop’s Lydeard. Here we re-join our coach for the journey back to the hotel.
We explore the ancient market town of Tiverton, which sits in a delightful setting on the banks of the River Exe. During the day we enjoy a relaxing horse-drawn barge trip on the Grand Western Canal, watch the world go by peacefully as we glide along – a little bit of ‘heaven’ in Devon!
