Babbacombe is situated on the outskirts of Torquay on the English Riviera and offers stunning panoramic views over Lyme Bay from its clifftop promenade.
Quieter than Torquay, the town has a good variety of shops, pubs and cafes. For the energetic, there are footpaths to Oddicombe and Babbacombe Beaches. Within easy walking the St Marychurch Shopping precinct offers a variety of shops and cafes and nearby is the famous Babbacombe Model Village.
We are delighted to be staying at the Hotel de la Mer and look forward to seeing Luke and his friendly team once again.
After being collected from your local pick up point around 8.30am we shall have comfort stops on route as required before arriving at the hotel mid afternoon for a friendly welcome. During our stay there will be some evening entertainment.
In the morning we head off for a visit to the historic Market town of Totnes. Boasting it’s very own currency, The Totnes Pound, Totnes lies on the banks of the River Dart with a fascinating history to discover. Many of the medieval buildings can still be seen around the town with narrow streets lined with timber-framed shops and houses. Renowned for its alternative lifestyle the town has a lovely atmosphere to enjoy. Great shopping too! Returning to Babbacombe with free time to explore before dinner.
Today we have an excursion along the edge of Dartmoor to Plymouth. We will be joined by a local guide for a coach tour which will include Plymouth Hoe, Devonport Naval Dockyard, Brunel’s magnificent Royal Albert Bridge and the Barbican area before free time in the city centre. A very popular and enjoyable day.
We depart in the morning and head home, stopping on route for lunch before arriving back in the local area around 4.00pm.
