Day 1 After your taxi pick up, we make our way to North Devon, making suitable refreshment stops along the way. We arrive at our hotel late afternoon.

Day 2 We visit the picturesque resort of Lynmouth where you can explore the narrow streets or maybe take the cliff railway to the twin town of Lynton. In the afternoon we visit Arlington Court, an unexpected gem on the edge of Exmoor. The regency house set in an extensive estate and contains a huge variety of treasures. We also visit the Carriage Museum, home to a large collection of horse-drawn vehicles.

Day 3 This morning we visit Bideford, where you could visit the Pannier Market and artisan shops. In the afternoon we have Hartland Abbey, cherished home of the Stucley family since it was gifted to them at the dissolution of the monasteries, filled with treasures and memorabilia collected over many generations.

Day 4 After a leisurely breakfast and time to take a walk in Barnstaple, we travel up to the pretty harbour town of Ilfracombe where you can purchase lunch in one of the many pubs and cafés. In the afternoon we visit Saunton Sands, where we visit another Brend Hotel for a delicious cream tea.

Day 5 We depart after breakfast and travel to the Clarks Village complex in Street, with over 90 different stores. We arrive back in the local area late afternoon.

The Royal & Fortescue Hotel

A former coaching inn right in the centre of Barnstaple, this historic threestar Brend Hotel combines old world character and charm with the convenience of a modern hotel. All rooms are equipped with TV, telephone, WiFi, hairdryer and hospitality tray. There is a lift to all floors, but some steps throughout.
