Devon & Cornwall Coasts (based in Bideford)

Devon & Cornwall Coasts (based in Bideford)

Based at the ROYAL HOTEL




5 DAYS FROM £359


Located at the western tip of England, the counties of Devon and Cornwall encompass everything from genteel villages to vast Atlantic-facing strands of golden sand and wild expanses of granite moorland. North Devon features dramatic coastlines, rugged moors and verdant valleys whilst the Atlantic coast of North Cornwall stretches for over forty miles along a wildly beautiful landscape where towns and villages huddle between the cliffs for protection against the sea. Our base for the tour is the attractive historic harbour town of Bideford in Devon with its pastel coloured houses, famous Pannier market, antique shops and narrow alleyways leading up from the river and quay (locally known as drangs).


Our base here is the very comfortable ROYAL HOTEL which stands proudly by Bideford Bridge with glorious views over the River Torridge. Dating back to the 17th century, the hotel oozes charm and character and features a fine restaurant and lounge/bar which serves drinks and snacks throughout the day. All of the very well appointed en suite bedrooms have tv, telephone, hairdryer and hospitality tray. A passenger lift serves all floors.

Departing Newark early morning, we travel via Warwickshire skirting the scenic Cotswolds to join the motorway system which takes us south into Devon and our base at Bideford.

Tuesday 8th – Thursday 10th October
Scheduled excursions during our stay will include the following:
• Full day tour calling at Boscastle; one of the most picturesque and unspoilt villages in North Cornwall. Set in a narrow ravine and steeped in history, Boscastle has a famous witchcraft museum along with many interesting craft shops, art galleries and cafes. Time permitting we return via the seaside resort of Bude with its’pastel painted beach huts and wide sandy beaches.
• Free day at leisure in the delightful town of Bideford with time to visit the famous Pannier Market so called because of the wicker baskets which farmers wives once carried their wares in.
• Full day tour via the pretty Devon village of Appledore to the picturesque fishing village of Clovelly which clings to a 400 foot cliff with cottages which tumble down the steep cobbled street to an ancient 14th century quay. Please note – there are attractions at the top of the village for those who cannot manage the steep hill and a land rover transfer service for the journey back up to the village is available at a small additional cost.

Friday 11th October
