Join us for a bit of pre Christmas cheer in lovely Sidmouth. The pretty town is quiet, unhurried and unspoilt and situated on the glorious south Devon coast, set between deep red cliffs on the edge of Devonís heathery uplands. With a festive theme throughout our stay guests will be assured of that Christmassy feeling!
The 3 star, family run Royal York and Faulkner is a firm favourite with our clients. It is ideally situated on the centre of the esplanade overlooking the sea and adjacent to the shopping centre. The well-appointed bedrooms are all en-suite and include tea/coffee making facilities and all are served by a lift. There will be entertainment on each evening.
Sunday Our door to door service takes you from your home to the waiting Club Class coach for the journey to the South West. We spend time in the famous maritime city of Bristol then on to Sidmouth arriving at our holiday hotel late afternoon. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served on arrival.
Monday A delightful drive through the Otter Valley to Budleigh Salterton, a charming resort overlooked by high cliffs known as the Floors, then on to Exmouth, Devonís oldest seaside resort and one of great naval and historic importance. We later return to the hotel for dinner this evening.
Tuesday Joining the coach we head to Exeter. As Devonís capital, Exeter is a vibrant, modern city with a historical past pre-dating the Romans. This is reflected in its fascinating visitor attractions including underground passages, museums, the magnificent Exeter Catherdal and the Roman wall at the cityís historic quayside. Indulge in a spot of Christmas shopping or explore the Historic Quayside. After a good stay we return to the hotel for afternoon tea Christmas cake and dinner which is followed by entertainment.
Wednesday Today we visit the county town of Dorchester on Market day when the town is transformed by a huge bustling market, part covered and including a local farmers market, brica- brac and fresh seafood. Our return is by way of the Hardy Monument for impressive views and the Chesil Beach coastal road. This evening a traditional Christmas dinner, complete with all the trimmings, is served.
Thursday Our homeward journey includes glorious Somerset scenery, retracing our outward journey before returning to our home area late afternoon after our enjoyable pre-Christmas break.
