Select Torquay & The English Riviera
6 Day Select Holiday
Torquay has an enviable seafront, beautiful beaches and stylish marina. As part of the English Riviera, this graceful South Devon town has been accredited by UNESCO as a Global Geopark in recognition of its astonishing landscape and geology with rocks dating back millions of years. Indeed, visitors can follow in the footsteps of Stone Age Man at Kents Cavern, a spectacular cave network where you can step back to when this labyrinth was home to ancient humans. Perhaps visit Torre Abbey, a monastery founded in 1196 with art galleries and an Agatha Christie inspired Potent Plants Garden featuring flora from the local writer’s novels. This holiday haven also has a museum with an exhibition dedicated to Agatha Christie and Princess Pier promenade is where she roller-skated in her youth. Elsewhere, you might like to explore award-winning Babbacombe Model Village where you’ll find miniature houses and people displayed with a splash of humour and a soupçon of history. Opt for our leisurely pace holiday and you’ll enjoy a restful dinner, bed and breakfast stop en route to Torquay.

Buckfast Abbey, Buckfast Butterfly Farm & Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary
Buckfast Abbey is a splendid Benedictine Monastery where you can explore the impressive abbey and themed gardens, browse the gift shop and have a bite to eat in the restaurant. From here, we head to nearby Buckfast Butterfly Farm & Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary. Here you can view tropical butterflies within a rainforest atmosphere and watch the antics of the playful otters in their reservation.

Enjoy a morning visit to pretty Paignton, home to a pleasure pier and quaint harbour. From here we continue to Dartmouth where we embark on a delightful cruise on the River Dart, sailing us past Kingswear, the Britannia Royal Navy College, the tiny village of Dittisham, Sir Walter Raleigh’s boathouse and Agatha Christie’s Greenway House (six, seven and eight day holidays only).
