Itinerary

Description

The beautiful coastline that overlooks the sparkling waters of Torbay forms the heart of our English Riviera. Surrounded by stunning coastline, award-winning beaches, seaside resorts and open countryside, this is the perfect place to enjoy a traditional seaside getaway.

Coach Itinerary

Buckfast Abbey, Buckfast Butterfly Farm and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary&South Devon Railway (full day)
Home to a community of Benedictine monks, Buckfast Abbey lies on the banks of the River Dart. Here, we have the chance to explore the Abbey church with its art treasures, wander the tranquil gardens or browse the gift and produce shops.

Our next stop is the Buckfast Butterfly Farm and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary. Here we can watch free-flying tropical butterflies in the specially designed rainforest habitat and wander around the otter sanctuary, home to three different species of otter, with its large enclosures and underwater viewing areas.

We then experience a nostalgic journey on the South Devon Railway, travelling through delightful countryside from Buckfastleigh to Totnes and back.

Cruising the River Exe & Exmouth (full day)
We start the day with a cruise of the River Exe estuary where we can admire the stunning scenery including the start of the Jurassic Coast, possibly spot some of the beautiful wildlife and hear about the fascinating history of the surrounding towns and villages.


We then enjoy some free time in the picturesque holiday resort of Exmouth, a bustling little town with a vibrant shopping centre, a lovely small harbour and many bars and cafés.

Optional Excursion
Looe & Plymouth - £10pp (full day)
Join our optional excursion where we head first to Looe, a pretty seaside town with a working fishing port, boasting a sandy beach, a picturesque harbour and a wide variety of shops. Our second stop is Plymouth, a handsome city with a wonderful waterfront that houses the historic Barbican and Sutton Harbour.
