Join our break to this outstanding Brend Hotel for a touch of luxury in the centre of Barnstaple. One of their best!
Lying on the River Taw, Barnstaple is the largest town in North Devon with a history extending back to King Aethelstan. Once a major port, Barnstaple is a thriving market town with a partly pedestrianised centre, historic buildings, charming streets and alleys and a traditional Pannier Market. The dramatic, rugged coastline of the North Devon Coast, where the cliffs seem to dive in to the sea is quite stunning and on a clear day you can see over to South Wales. The stunning Exmoor National Park with its spectacular scenery is also close by with a host of other terrific excursion destinations to explore in the region.
After being collected from your home around 8.00am, we travel to Barnstaple with comforts stops as required and a main stop for lunch before arriving mid/late afternoon with time to relax before dinner.
After breakfast we have an excursion with a scenic drive over the wonderful scenery of Exmoor National Park with a stop in the historic town of Dunster, overlooked by its magnificent castle. Afterwards we continue to Lynmouth for a lunch break in this picturesque port.
In the morning we head for Great Torrington with a visit to Dartington Crystal where we have included a factory tour. Watch the craftsmen at work, transforming hot molten crystal into elegant shapes and hear the fascinating story of this famous brand. Returning for free time in Barnstaple.
Lovely half day excursion today as we visit Appledore. In a picturesque setting overlooking the River Torridge estuary, this thriving fishing village has a selection of galleries, shops and cafes. We continue to Bideford which has a great selection of cafes for lunch with a lovely view of the estuary.
After breakfast we head home with a lunch stop on route. Dropped back to your home around 3.00pm.
