The North Devon Explorer (I)    
The North Devon Explorer (I)
5 Days- BID9

 Steam Trains through rolling hills, Honey Farms and gorgeous Gardens – that’s why we love north Devon!




Day 1: We arrive at our hotel this afternoon for 4 nights.

Day 2: Through the Devon countryside to Tiverton where we join a horse-drawn barge on the Grand Western Canal for a delightful boat trip with memorable tales, anecdotes and historical facts.

Next, to Bishops Lydeard for a date with a steam train and a 20-mile scenic journey through the gently rolling Quantock hills to Minehead.

Then, snaking through the Exmoor National park and stopping a while in the twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth – connected by an unusual water-operated cliff railway opened in 1890 and you have a ticket to ride!

Day 3: We drop in on Quince Honey Farm for all things Bees (and honey) see inside the hives for an intimate view of honey bee society and take some yummy honey home.

Next, we take a country road through the Devon landscape for an afternoon of relaxed pleasure at RHS Rosemoor – one of the most splendid Gardens in England and a must while you’re in these parts.

Day 4: A free day so you can explore the nearby town of Bideford if you wish.

Day 5: We leave for home after breakfast and make a suitable stop on the way back.

Price includes; 4 nights D/B/B and all coach travel and trips out as stated. Single room supplement £29
