Book Now

Monday 10th to Friday 14th June 2024




Minehead is where Exmoor meets the sea. Sitting on the very edge of the National Park, it is ideal for lovers of the coast and the countryside and offers traditional seaside fun, with its promenade and long, sandy beach, and pebble beach near the harbour, which stretches for a mile and gives views across the Bristol Channel to Wales. Today it remains a popular seaside resort and was once a port and the haunt for smugglers. Quay Town is the oldest surviving part of the resort with 14th century fishermen’s cottages.

Departing Henley-in-Arden we journey south west. We pause for lunch en-route before arriving at our hotel in the afternoon for our 4-night stay.


This morning we drive to Tiverton, where we enjoy a 1 ½ hour cruise on the Great Western Canal on-board one of the last remaining horse-drawn barges in Great Britain. The ‘Tivertonian’ is a truly unique living heritage from a time before steam! The canal was built in 1814 for primary use of the lime trade and stretches for 11 miles. Tub-boats worked for over 100 years conveying stone from local quarries to Tiverton Wharf. The area is now a local nature reserve and country park.


After breakfast, we take a relaxing heritage train ride from Minehead to the village of Bishops Lydeard on the scenic West Somerset Railway. Next, we visit Cleeve Abbey, one of Somerset’s undiscovered jewels. Here, we catch a glimpse of monastic life 800 years ago. This Cistercian Abbey is a haven of peace and tranquillity that contains one of the finest cloister buildings in England.


Today, our included excursion takes us along the North Devon Coast, to the charming twin resorts of Lynton and Lynmouth, spectacularly situated on the northern edge of the Exmoor National Park and linked by a cliff railway.


Departing after breakfast we visit historic Dunster - Situated in the sweeping hills of Exmoor National Park, Dunster is one of the most popular places on Exmoor for visitors. It is a medieval village that appears to be ‘locked
in time’ with an ancient castle, priory, dovecote, yarn market, inns, packhorse bridge and a mill. From here we commence our journey homeward.
