After the success of our previous tours we are delighted to return to Babbacombe in Devon. As alternative destination to the hustle and bustle of adjacent Torquay, Babbacombe boasts its own promenade and of course the famous Babbacombe Model Village. Situated high above two beaches and a harbour the town offers wonderful views and is also home to the historic Babbacombe Cliff Railway, one of the only original working funicular railways still in existence.
The Babbacombe Hotel enjoys a seafront location, overlooking the famous Babbacombe Downs with far reaching views across Lyme Bay. All of the bedrooms are en-suite and there is a lift that serve all floors. A special feature of our tour is a ‘99p Bar’ each night
Monday From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach for the cross country drive to the English Riviera, to arrive at our hotel for a welcoming tea/coffee and time to settle in before dinner.
Tuesday After a leisurely breakfast we enjoy a morning journey to Brixham with its beautiful harbour and maze of narrow, winding streets. Explore the harbour side shops, watch the fishermen, or just watch the world go by. We return to Babbacombe for free time in the afternoon to relax and explore our resort before dinner.
Wednesday A visit to rugged Dartmoor spending time in Widdecombe of ‘Uncle Tom Cobley’ fame before a scenic drive through the National Park to the great Maritime centre of Plymouth. The city is an extraordinary blend of vibrant modern city and historic seafaring port in a picturesque harbour setting. The Elizabethan Barbican where Drake, Raleigh and the Pilgrim Fathers weighed anchor is a great attraction
Thursday Another fine breakfast before a morning visit to Teignmouth a real hidden gem then on to the county capital, Exeter, noted for its mighty Norman cathedral, stylish shops and interesting museums. We return to the hotel for time to relax before dinner on our final evening.
Friday Following breakfast we return to our home areas after a relaxing break on the English Riviera.
