A morning departure to Devon, pausing en-route for lunch, arriving in the afternoon for our 6-night stay.


This morning we visit Brixham, an attractive port fringed with a tumble of colourful fisher cottages on the surrounding hillsides. Explore the winding streets, snug with bustling arcades and gift shops. The horseshoe harbour is well worth a look, being home to a replica of Sir Francis Drake’s ship, the Golden Hind.


We start the day with some time at leisure in the riverside town of Dartmouth. Former home of Agatha Christie, it is easily one of Devon’s prettiest destinations. Explore the befuddle of pastel-coloured buildings leaning at angles and the picturesque harbour laden with yachts. We then enjoy a relaxing cruise along the calm waters of the River Dart, where we admire the magnificent buildings including the Britannia Royal Naval College and Agatha Christie’s Greenway Estate. Cameras at the ready for the Sharpham Estate with its vineyards, and steep, toppling wooded hillsides plunging down to the water’s edge. We disembark in the historic market town of Totnes, a helter-skelter of charming streets and fine Tudor buildings nestled beneath the silhouette of the sturdy Norman castle. Please note: the cruise itinerary may operate in reverse order subject to sailing times.


A day at leisure in Torquay.


Today we visit Buckfast Abbey, where we soak up the peaceful atmosphere and explore the beautiful Abbey church with its art treasures. We then continue through the Dartmoor National Park; this wild heart of Devon is peppered with moss-blanketed boulders, honey-coloured heaths, tinkling streams and cinematic granite tors. We visit Princetown, home to the foreboding Dartmoor prison and the Dartmoor National Park Visitor Centre.


We head to chic Salcombe. Sitting pretty at the mouth of the Kingsbridge estuary, its network of ancient, winding streets border the sandy coves and glistening waters.


After breakfast we commence our journey homeward, arriving home during the afternoon.
