Coach Itinerary

Ilfracombe & Exmoor Cliffs and Waterfalls Cruise (full day)

We head for Ilfracombe, a popular holiday town during the Victorian era and home to stunning beaches and the largest harbour on the north Devon coast. We embark on the Ilfracombe Princess to explore some of the most dramatic coastlines and highest cliffs in England. On our cruise, we take in the impressive headlands of the Exmoor National Park, Great Hangman cliffs just outside Combe Martin which stand at a huge 1043ft, plus the famous Silver mines and Watermouth Castle. We may even be lucky enough to see harbour porpoises and grey seals before we head back to Ilfracombe for some time at leisure.

Bude & Hartland Abbey and Gardens (full day)

We start our day on the north Cornwall coast in the delightful seaside town of Bude. This town has a laid-back charm and atmosphere with pristine sandy beaches, spectacular views and independently-owned shops and restaurants.

We then make our way to Hartland Abbey, a stately home in a stunning setting on the north-west Devon coast. Built in the 12th century, the abbey survived as a monastery longer than any other in the country. In 1530, Henry VIII gifted the abbey to the Keeper of his Wine Cellar and the house still remains in the family – what a gift! We explore the fascinating interiors of the house, which span Medieval, Queen Anne, Georgian, Regency and Victorian periods, before a wander around the beautiful woodland, walled gardens and parkland, complete with wild flowers, peacocks and donkeys.

 

Optional excursion
Barnstable Market – £10pp
(half day)

On our optional excursion we head to Barnstaple, the capital of north Devon. The town features many fine buildings and attractive streets and is also home to the historic Barnstaple Pannier Market which offers a range of produce, arts and crafts, antiques and collectables.
