Our tour begins with a Devon coastal tour. Following the shore road, we pass through Teignmouth and Dawlish and continue north to the Cathedral City of Exeter. We take a break here and have time to explore the city before we continue along the Exe estuary to the pleasant resort of Exmouth. Here we have time for lunch before we enjoy a cruise along the River Exe discovering the history, beauty and wildlife of the river.


This morning we drive into Newton Abbot where today is market day. Enjoy a browse around the stalls and a look at the town where you can obtain lunch. Next, we enjoy a ride on the South Devon Railway, from Buckfastleigh to Totnes. On arrival you can stretch your legs before the train returns to Buckfastleigh. Here, the railway offers an extensive museum, workshops, gifts and book shop and refreshment rooms.


We head to Kingsbridge, ‘capital’ of South Devon, with a chance to look around the pleasant town. Moving on we head for delightful Dartmouth with its many naval connections, including the Royal Naval College. We have lunchtime here and you can enjoy a lovely stroll along the busy harbour, or just sit and watch the boats. Late afternoon we return to the hotel.


Homeward bound.
