After the success of our previous tour 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 Babbacombe offer wonderful views and is also home to the historic Babbacombe Cliff Railway, one of the only original working funicular railways still in existence.
The recently refurbished 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.
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 to 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 in time for a light lunch at the hotel before free time in the afternoon to relax and explore our resort before dinner.
Wednesday We take the coach to nearby pretty Paignton to spend time before taking the scenic ride into the Dartmoor National Park with its heather-covered moorland and deep wooded gorges, beautiful lake-like reservoirs and tumbling rocky rivers. We include entrance to the interesting Dartmoor Prison Museum, one of England’s most famous examples of its kind. We return to Babbacombe with time to relax before dinner.
Thursday Another fine breakfast before setting of on our excursion through Totnes to delightful Dartmouth. There will be time to explore before we return to Babbacombe for our light lunch at the hotel with 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.
