Arriving in England’s sunniest city, your afternoon is free to relax or explore the charming city of Exeter. Perhaps visit the Royal Albert Museum, visit the historic quayside or simply take in the views on the green in front of the stunning Norman Cathedral which dates back more than 650 years. By evening, we get together to meet your tour leader and the rest of the group for a welcome meal.

  2. Day 2 Dartmoor, Devonshire Cream Tea and Buckfast Abbey

    Today we explore the rugged beauty of South Devon. Crossing the wilds of the Dartmoor National Park we’ll see desolate landscapes, rocky tors and wild ponies before pausing in one or more of the quaint moorland villages. The charming market town of Tavistock makes for the perfect spot for a traditional cream tea. By afternoon, we make our way to the hidden gem at Buckfast Abbey to enjoy the beautiful abbey church and manicured gardens whose tranquillity belie a tumultuous history. Upon returning to Exeter, enjoy your evening at leisure.

    Overnight: Exeter

    Meals: Breakfast included.

  3. Day 3 Tintagel Castle and Port Isaac

    This morning we cross the county border in to Cornwall. Arriving on the North Cornish coast, we’ll visit Tintagel Castle, a dramatic cliffside fort steeped in Arthurian Legend and reputedly home to Merlin’s cave beneath. Then we’ll pass South along the coast to visit the quintessential fishing village of Port Isaac, better known as Port Wen, the stomping ground of television’s ”Doc Martin”. Here we’ll enjoy a brief walk through the village before free-time to explore. By afternoon, we’ll cross the Cornish Peninsula to the South heading for the seaside resort of Falmouth home to sweeping sandy bays and our overnight base for the next two nights.

    Overnight: Falmouth

    Meals: Breakfast and dinner included.

  4. Day 4 The Cornish Peninsula

    Our day today takes us on an epic excursion to explore the farthest reaches of the Cornish Peninsula. We’ll navigate Cornwall’s dramatic coastlines, discover the historic mines of Poldark country, pause in cobbled fishing towns such as the bohemian artist retreat of St Ives and visit the most southerly point in Britain where only the Atlantic separates you from the Americas. We’ll spot the island monastery of St Michaels Mount and visit the enchanting Minack Theatre – an amphitheatre carved in to the Cornish cliffs over-looking the churning waters of the ocean. After our enjoyable day we’ll return to Falmouth where your evening is free to dine at your leisure.

    Overnight: Falmouth

    Meals: Breakfast included.

  5. Day 5 Eden Project and the Mendip Hills

    It’s an early start, for today we bid farewell to Cornwall but not before making our way to the magnificent Eden Project; set in the colossal crater of a former china clay pit, the site consists of a collection of diverse contemporary gardens and tropical biodomes. Later we’ll continue North passing through the Devonshire countryside and then onwards through Somerset’s picturesque Mendip Hills, an area of protected natural beauty. Our destination this evening is the elegant city of Bath, a city which enjoys UNESCO world heritage status owing to its unique history and architecture.

    Overnight: Bath

    Meals: Breakfast included.

  6. Day 6 Regency Bath and the Roman Baths

    This morning we'll enjoy a brief walk around Bath; you'll feel like you're stepping in to the pages of an Austen novel as you stroll the city's broad avenues and take in the elegant Georgian architecture. Later there is plenty of free time to explore the city independently before using your complimentary tickets to visit the undoubted highlight at the magnificent Roman Baths which date back 2000 years. By evening, we reconvene for a farewell dinner.

    Overnight: Bath

    Meals: Breakfast and dinner included.

  7. Day 7 Farewell to the West Country

    This morning enjoy a leisurely breakfast before bidding farewell to your group and tour leader. After checking out from your hotel, you may choose to explore Bath – perhaps visiting the Jane Austen exhibition or the Georgian house at No. 1 Royal Crescent. Then you can board the train for your journey back to London or travel to Oxford where you can join our tour of central and Northern England, England’s Rustic Charm.
