GBTours’ ‘GET-TOGETHER’ as we take over the Durrant House hotel in Bideford, north Devon.
Meet old friends, make new ones, compare notes! There’s lot’s fun, entertainment, good food and nice trips out - all wrapped up in the camaraderie of like-minded folk.
Friday: We arrive at our hotel in Bideford, north Devon this afternoon for 3 nights.
Saturday: A morning visit to Barnstaple - the main town of north Devon, where we recommend you call into the town’s historic indoor Pannier Market – largely unchanged in 150 years.
Next, a scenic drive through the Devon landscape to National Trust property Knightshayes Court - a spectacular Gothic revival Victorian country house with acres of glorious gardens.
Sunday: We snake through the west of Exmoor and stop at the twin coastal villages of Lynton and Lynmouth – connected by the world’s steepest water-powered railway; a ticket to ride is included.
This afternoon, we visit the world-famous Dartington Crystal where all that glass-blowing will keep you warm and we’ll finish in Dartington with a Devon cream tea before we go back to our hotel.
Monday: Sadly, the fun is over, and we head for home after breakfast.
Note: Knighthayes Court can’t take 5 coaches on the same day so some coaches will visit on Saturday and some on Sunday.
Price includes: 3 nights hotel D/B/B basis with excursions as shown including entrance fees and cream tea. Single room supplement applies.
