Day 1: You’ll arrive at the hotel late afternoon with time to settle-in and freshen-up before dinner followed by seasonal entertainment tonight
Day 2: We visit two picturesque coastal fishing villages. Appledore. Sit on one of the benches on the Quay side and enjoy watching all the various craft come and go.
There is everything from fishing boats small and large to beautiful yachts.
While sitting and watching all the activity why not buy some superb fish and chips and finish it off with an ice-cream from the Hockings ice-cream van. This glorious ice-cream is actually made in Appledore and you will find it on sale all over North Devon.
Next, on to Ilfracombe. Nestling snugly amongst the rugged cliffs is charming Ilfracombe. The town has grown up around an ancient harbour where today fishing vessels mix with pleasure craft. With its array of shops, cafés and bars, it has an almost continental atmosphere.
We return to our hotel late afternoon.
This evening’s dinner is a traditional Christmas ‘Lunch’ with all the trimmings and glass of Bubbly and a visit from Santa.
Day 3: Day out to the market town of Barnstaple where you will find the famous Pannier marker. Later we call into Atlantic Shopping Village - North Devon’s unique outlet shopping destination.
Day 4: Today is left free so you can browse Bideford at your own pace.
It’s ‘New Years Eve’ Party night tonight with optional fancy dress!
Day 5: Time to go home. We leave after breakfast and make a suitable stop on the way back.
