Exmouth And Gardens Of Jurassic Coast 2021
5 Days | Half Board | by Coach
Highlights: Forde Abbey & Gardens, Seaton, Bicton Park Botanical Gardens, Sidmouth, Exmouth
Nestled on the picturesque East Devon coast, where the mouth of the River Exe meets the sea, Exmouth has a charm to rival many of its more well know holiday neighbours. Reputed to be the oldest seaside resort in Britain, it has the longest sea front in Devon and Cornwall, with an idyllic esplanade and two miles of golden beach signalling the start of the famous Jurassic Coast. Out and about and the warm gentle air of the Jetstream makes for ideal growing conditions. No co-incidence that the amazing Gardens here are some of the finest in England.

FULL DAY: This morning we make our way to Forde Abbey & Gardens, showcasing one of the oldest gardens in Britain, dating back 900 years. Today the ever evolving gardens are home to the highest powered fountain in the country, colourful herbaceous borders and topiary lined vistas. Step inside and aspects of the house can still be traced back to a time when 12th century Cisterian monks were resident. This afternoon we make out way to Seaton where the River Axe meets the sea and the unique Tramway is a popular attraction of this attractive resort.
FULL DAY: Today we head to Bicton Park Botanical Gardens in the picturesque Otter Valley. Spanning 300 years of horticultural history, the gardens are home to many rare and exotic plants with origins from around the world, set amid a number of themed gardens and within four spectacular glasshouses. This afternoon we visit Sidmouth, described by John Betjeman as ‘a town caught still in a timeless charm’, with a regency history set beneath the majestic red cliffs of the Jurassic Coast.
FREE DAY: Enjoy a leisurely day to explore the delights of Exmouth. Perhaps take a cruise on the River Exe, enjoy the wonderful esplanade and golden sands or take a stroll through the charming streets and alleys of the 18th Century resort.Back to top
