Entertainment may change slightly.


Departing Henley mid-morning we journey south. After a suitable stop for lunch
en-route, we arrive in our resort during the afternoon. After settling in to our rooms, we join our hosts for a sherry reception, accompanied by the Torbells, hand bell ringers. Evening dinner followed by musical entertainment.


After a hearty breakfast we travel to Slade House Farm and visit the Donkey Sanctuary. It is home to 200 donkeys who live in small groups which can be seen on many of the walks around the sanctuary grazing in the paddocks, you'll find residents from gentle giant Poitou donkeys to adorable miniatures, and several gorgeous adoption donkeys. Visit the gift shop and Visitors centre before returning to Sidmouth for a 4-Course luncheon. The afternoon is at leisure with afternoon tea available from 3.30pm. Christmas Eve dinner is followed by Christmas Carols from the Sidmouth Town Band in the lounge bar.


Wake up to a leisurely breakfast in the morning. Perhaps work up an appetite with a walk along the Esplanade. A traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings will be served in the Restaurant. Relax in the afternoon and enjoy Christmas cake and mince pies as you watch the Queen's speech. A light evening buffet is followed by a Christmas Quiz.


After breakfast, why not watch the traditional charity swim, down at the Ham where locals brave the winter waters before returning to the hotel for lunch. In the afternoon, you may try the Christmas sales in Sidmouth or join us on a short afternoon excursion to the Cathedral City of Exeter. Dinner at our hotel is followed by music and dancing.


Breakfast, then it's homeward bound with a convenient stop for lunch provided on the way.
