On the doorstep of the vibrant town of Torquay, Babbacombe is situated high on top of red sandstone cliffs looking down over a stunning coastline and harbour and out across to Lyme Bay. With its own colourful promenade of boutique shops, Babbacombe is popular with all visitors and it has all you need for a restful holiday.
Monday: We depart the Travel Centre this morning and make our way to Babbacombe with a stop en route. We aim to arrive at the hotel late afternoon.
Tuesday: This morning we depart the hotel and for a River Exe Cruise, sailing from Exmouth. Your Skipper will give you a live commentary on the history of the area, the beautiful sights and the resident and visiting wildlife.
Wednesday: We leave the hotel this morning to take a train ride from Paignton to Kingswear. The scenery on this picturesque line is breath-taking, from spotting dolphins to seals, kingfishers to buzzards, pheasants, herons and egrets, the wildlife is superb. With such a varied range of scenery and wildlife, this is one of the finest heritage steam railway journeys anywhere in Europe. From here we take the foot ferry to Dartmouth where you will have some free time.
Thursday: Today we have a visit to Torquay for some free time, with the afternoon free in Babbacombe.
Friday: We bid a fond farewell to the hotel staff as we head back this morning to Hugglescote, arriving back late afternoon.
