Discover the best of the Devonshire Coast and Dartmoor on this unforgettable tour. Embrace the rich history of the area entwined with its natural beauty on visits to Hartland and Buckfast Abbey, the South Devon Steam Railway, the Beautiful Gardens at RHS Rosemoor and the famously steep cobbled street of Clovelly. Not forgetting local artisans, with their skillfully made glass and wine.

There’s just so much to discover in Devon; From the stunning ancient landscapes of Dartmoor and Exmoor National parks, to the  beautiful coastal villages and towns  of Dartmouth, Lynton, Lymouth, and the village of Clovelly, where no cars are allowed, experience travel as it used to be on the South Devon Steam Railway and tread in the footsteps of the past when we visit famous Buckfast Abbey which is still an active monastery, as well as historic Hartland Abbey and magnificent RHS Rosemoor. We also learn more about the skilled artisans of the area, with a visit to the UK’s last remaining glass workshop at Dartington Crystal, a wine tasting and tour of a local vineyard. We stay in Barnstaple charmingly situated along the banks of the river Taw, an ancient and still thriving market town now the ‘capital’ of North Devon and the perfect base to explore from.
