With a morning departure we journey South with comfort stops on route arriving at our hotel late afternoon in time for dinner.


Today we visit the pretty town of Totnes, a charming town with a bustling main street. Each Tuesday morning there is an Elizabethan market where local people and traders go about their daily business dressed in Elizabethan costume. Alongside is an all day craft market. Following Totnes we travel on to Brixham, a picturequse fishing village known as the least commercialised part of the English Riviera. Finally we take a tour around Torbay, a large bay located on Devon’s South coast before returning to our hotel for dinner.


Spend the day at your leisure, embracing all that the beautiful seaside resort of Torquay has to offer. Enjoy the Princess Pier, the marina or a waterfront stroll along the promenade.


Following breakfast we take a morning excursion to Exeter, the small city that packs a big punch! Here you have free time to explore the fantastic visitor attractions. Why not visit the unique underground passes or the magnificent cathedral. In the afternoon we visit Powderham Castle where you will enjoy a guided tour of the ‘Home of Devon’, located on the banks of the River Exe. We will return to our hotel in time for dinner.


We bid a fond farewell to Torquay, with five days worth of memories as we head home arriving in Cumbria late afternoon, early evening.
