There is stunning scenery along the coast road and historic towns are dotted throughout the region. The traditional harbour and stylish Princess Pier marina area offer the town a continental atmosphere, with a growing selection of eateries to sample.

Enjoy a lovely breakfast overlooking the sea before we depart for todays excursion to Buckland Abbey. A wonderful National Trust property, Buckland has 700 years of history but is perhaps most famously linked with one of England’s most famous seafarers, Sir Francis Drake. The Abbey is part museum, part house, and filled with treasures such as the legendary Drake’s Drum. Surrounded by meadows, orchards, woodlands and lovely gardens.  Returning for free time at the hotel. Entrance fee included in holiday price. National Trust member discount - £10

Memorable day today as we head first for Totnes where we board one of the excellent river cruise boats. Special cruise today as we head downstream, enjoying the picturesque, lush scenery of the South Hams, looking out for the river wildlife on this 90 minute journey to historic Dartmouth. Disembark and enjoy plenty of time exploring this delightful historic town and finding somewhere nice for lunch. Some lovely shops here - a lovely place to sit and enjoy the views over the estuary to Kingswear and watch the boats bustling along the river. A wonderful day out. Boat fare included in holiday price.

You're on holiday - day at leisure today ! So relax, enjoy your breakfast being cooked, relax around the hotel, take a stroll along the front and potter around the area. If you want to go further afield, the local bus service will take you along to Torquay centre or up the coast to Teignmouth or Dawlish.
