- Duration: 4 Days
- Product code: PDMXYX
Famous for its long sandy beaches, level promenade and colourful pier, Paignton lies on England’s beautiful English Riviera on Devon’s southern coast. The long and flat seafront esplanade offers lovely views across Torbay with leisure facilities for the visitor. The town has some lovely public gardens and good shopping with an abundance of cafes and restaurants. Paignton lies on the fantastic South West Coast Path with a chance to enjoy a coastal stroll. Plenty of lovely excursion destinations in the area.
After being collected from your local pick up point (approx 8.00/9.00am) we have refreshment stops as required before arriving at the hotel mid-afternoon. Time to settle in and perhaps take a stroll before dinner. Evening entertainment every night of your stay.
We visit the lovely town of Totnes. Nestling alongside the River Dart, this charming market town dates back to Saxon times and has a wide variety of shops giving the town a lovely atmosphere. Returning to the hotel for free time.
A memorable excursion today. We have included a return journey on the Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway plus ferry to Dartmouth. The station in Paignton is a 10 minute level walk form the hotel. We board the train for a fantastic nostalgic trip through the wonderful Devon countryside to Kingswear, where we board the short ferry crossing over the River Dart estuary to Dartmouth. Plenty of time in this lovely town (one of our favourites!) and home to the famous Naval College, before taking the boat back across to join the return train journey to Paignton. Lovely day out.
We head home in the morning and have a stop for lunch on route before arriving back in the local area around 3.00/4.00pm.
