Your Excursions

Full day

This morning we head for nearby Paignton, where we board our train on the former Great Western branch line, which takes us along the coast past Goodrington Sands and alongside the River Dart Estuary to Kingswear. Here we take the passenger ferry across the river to the seafaring port of Dartmouth, with its imposing Royal Naval College, to board our river cruise. Sit back and enjoy the wonderful scenery - wooded slopes, secret creeks and enviable houses dotted along the banks of the River Dart.

Full day

This morning we drive to the great port of Plymouth where there is time to explore as well as enjoying a cruise across Plymouth Sound, past the Hoe and famous Drakes Island to the River Tamar where warships can often be seen at anchor. This afternoon we take a superb ride on the South Devon Railway (ticket included). It is one of the longest established steam railways in the south west, operating along seven stunning miles of the Dart Valley between Buckfastleigh and Totnes.

8 Day Holiday Bonus

Full day - As an added bonus on eight day holidays, you’ll also enjoy an extra full day excursion. Today we skirt Dartmoor National Park to reach Morwellham Quay. This museum of living history recreates the Victorian heyday that saw the quay become the greatest copper ore port in Queen Victoria’s Empire. Today you can explore the Victorian town, take a ride on the copper mine railway and visit the animals of BBC’s Edwardian Farm.
