A morning departure to the West Country, arriving at our hotel in the afternoon for our 4-night stay.


We step back in time this morning as we visit the award-winning Morwellham Quay, which forms part of a World Heritage Site featuring the only open copper mine in the UK, made accessible to visitors by a riverside railway. Next, we enjoy a Guided Tour of Buckland Abbey (NT) – Part house, part museum, it is crammed with treasures to be discovered and is surrounded by meadows with magnificent views of the Tavy Valley.


We drive to rugged Bodmin Moor to see the Cornish Landscape at its wildest and stop at Jamaica Inn the coaching house immortalised by Daphne Du Maurier in her book of the same name. While still an inn, it also houses a museum filled with smuggling stories and artefacts. From here we travel to the North Cornwall coast and Tintagel to see the dramatic castle ruins.


Today, we enjoy a return journey on the South Devon Railway from Buckfastleigh to Totnes along a seven mile stretch of line that runs along the stunning valley of the River Dart. We continue with a scenic drive across the spectacularly beautiful Dartmoor.


Departing after breakfast, we commence our journey homeward.
