COACH HOLIDAY ITINERARY
DAY 1 Travel to Devon making suitable comfort stops along the way. Arrive at the hotel to freshen up before our evening meal.
DAY 2 After breakfast enjoy a day at RHS Rosemoor Gardens. Nestled in a Devon valley, Rosemoor blends formal and informal plantings to a magical effect. As a visitor we will experience the newest areas first, beginning with the multi-faceted Formal Garden and then the Stream Field and Lake to the north. These in turn lead toward the South West and Devon Orchards and the very popular Fruit and Vegetable Garden. Walking through the Underpass, discover the contrasting original garden of Lady Anne Berry which consists of many garden ‘rooms’ that blend seamlessly into one. For lunch to be purchased, tuck into delicious award-winning food served in their restaurant with stunning views over the garden. Spanning 65 acres with lots to explore, we’re set for a fabulous day out!
DAY 3 After breakfast enjoy a coach excursion to the Jurassic Coast. Visit the popular South Devon seaside town of Sidmouth, nestling beneath majestic red Triassic sandstone cliffs and the green hills of the Sid Valley. Return to the hotel via Exmouth.
DAY 4 After breakfast spend time in Tiverton. Set on the banks of the Great Western Canal, it’s is full of history and heritage and has a great selection of interesting shops.There are many cafes and restaurants here for lunch to be purchased. This afternoon, enjoy a 2.5-hour horse-drawn barge cruise on the Grand Western Canal. Being one of the last remaining horse-drawn barges in the UK, a trip on the “Tivertonian” offers a truly unique and memorable experience. The barge travels for one hour to East Manley, turns around and then moors up, allowing you the opportunity to take a short walk to see the aqueduct (designed by Brunel’s team of railway engineers). We will hear memorable tales and historical facts about the Grand Western Canal. We arrive back at the hotel for our evening meal.
DAY 5 After breakfast return to home area with suitable comfort stops, including a stop in Salisbury for lunch to be purchased.
