A smooth ride to the West Country, paying a visit to beautiful Hestercombe Gardens en-route, with its formal terraces, cascades and breathtaking views. We continue to our hotel with time to settle in and enjoy the comfortable surroundings before dinner.


Our first stop this morning is the picturesque resort of Lynmouth where we have time to explore the narrow streets and maybe take the cliff railway to the twin village of Lynton. From here we make our way through scenic 'Little Switzerland', as the region is known, to the lovely village of Dunster, with its famous castle and octagonal Yarn Market. Our return takes us through Exford and the Exmoor National Park.


A morning at leisure in resort. Why not discover Bideford's Pannier Market? It's a lovely traditional market with around 40 stalls selling a wide range of locally-sourced fresh fish, crafts and gifts. In the afternoon, we visit the charming fishing village of Appledore with fabulous coastal views towards Bideford Bay. Return to our hotel for evening dinner.


We visit RHS Rosemoor Gardens where you can stroll amongst the many gardens from formal to model garden, from winter to cherry and from exotic to stone garden there is much to see. We will also have the chance to visit the Dartington Crystal visitors centre a short drive away before returning to our hotel.


After a leisurely breakfast we leave Bideford and return home, making a convenient lunch stop en-route.
