Outstanding value holiday at The Nethway Hotel. Great position in town - family run and TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Award holder!!

Blessed with a balmy climate and famous for its palm trees, it's easy to see why Torquay has attracted visitors since Victorian times. 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. Stroll along the attractive waterfront esplanade to the new Abbey Crescent leisure development and enjoy a drink overlooking Torbay. It is certainly worth exploring the newly refurbished Illuminated Royal Terrace Gardens with wonderful views from the top. 

This hotel has been awarded a Travellers' Choice 2023 Award - meaning they consistently earn great reviews from travellers and are ranked within the top 10% of properties on Tripadvisor for enjoyment and value for money.

FREE BAR OFFER!! Included on this holiday - Free Bar from 8pm to 11pm on selected drinks!! PLUS some Live Evening Entertainment!!

After being collected from your local pick up point around 8.30/9.45am we have comfort stops as required before arriving at the hotel mid afternoon. Settle in to your room and maybe take a stroll before dinner. Relax in the lounge bar after or stroll in to town.

After breakfast we head off for today's excursion. Powderham Castle is beautifully located in a unique, picturesque setting beside the Exe estuary. Six hundred years of history are contained within the walls of one of England's oldest family homes. The Estate has remained in the same family to this day and is currently home to the 18th Earl & Countess of Devon. We have included a fascinating guided tour of the interior and allow plenty of time to explore the lovely gardens and parkland. Enjoy the wonderful views and wildlife around the estate including farmyard animals and hopefully you will spot the 600 Fallow deer that stroll around the grounds. For lunch, head to the Courtenay Café which offers a range of light lunches, refreshments, and delicious cream teas. Entrance fee included.

A relaxing day today. Free for you to explore the town on your own. Stroll in to town - the seafront is a 15 minute walk away - or just hop on the bus outside the hotel. Subject to availability, the hotel will arrange for an optional trip to the highly regarded Babbacombe Theatre for the evening show - extra charge for those who want to go. 

Excursion to Dartmouth. Discover wonderful countryside before we arrive in this beautiful historic town. Home to the famous Naval College which stands guarding the town but with a maritime history which spans much further back in to history including links to Sir Francis Drake & The Pilgrim fathers. So much to see here with narrow streets lined with interesting shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs or you may like to take a boat trip along the river. Returning for free time at the hotel.

We head home with a stop for lunch before arriving back to your local drop off point around 3.00pm.
