The Coppice Hotel
Our hotel is an elegant Victorian mansion house, surrounded by beautiful gardens which create a relaxing atmosphere and encourage leisurely strolls with easy access to the local town and beaches. Allow your everyday burdens to disappear when you experience stellar service as you sit back and absorb the daylight on the hotel's sun terrace. Why not try a cocktail or two in the bar before entering the traditionally styled English restaurant where you will enjoy freshly prepared local and classic favourites. All of the bedrooms are comfortably furnished and the hotel offers regular evening entertainment for you to enjoy.
After joining the coach, we head for the south coast and Torquay with convenient coffee/lunch stops along the way. We expect to arrive at the Hotel late during the mid-afternoon. Check in and maybe enjoy a drink in the bar before dinner and your evening entertainment.
Enjoy a lovely traditional English breakfast along with free time in Torquay before your afternoon visit to beautiful Buckfast Abbey and your cream tea overlooking the historic abbey. Return to the hotel in the evening for dinner and more entertainment.
After breakfast we make our way home. After stopping for a coffee/lunch break, we continue homewards.
Nestled in the shadow of Dartmoor, in a beautiful wooded valley beside the river Dart, Buckfast Abbey offers visitors a tranquil refuge from the hectic pace of everyday life. The Abbey is a working monastery where a community of Benedictine monks live self-sufficiently, welcoming visitors from all around the world. At the heart of the site is the Abbey Church, a spiritual haven for the many thousands of visitors who come each year. There is an overwhelming sense of peace as soon as you enter the grounds with the church surrounded by gardens which in the summer come alive with colour. Within the Abbey precinct, visitors can browse in the Bookshop or visit the Monastic Shop which has an extraordinary array of products made by nuns and monks across Europe. There is also a gift shop and information point by the Westgate entrance.
Leisuretime passengers will also enjoy a delightful cream tea in the Grange Restaurant, which looks out over the Abbey and its grounds. A truly idyllic setting.
