We depart and make our way to Devon
arriving late afternoon at our hotel where we
enjoy 4 nights stay with dinner bed and
breakfast with tea/coffee and biscuits served on


Our frst stop this morning is the
picturesque resort of Woolacombe with its
superb beaches and after our break here we
head for the coastal town of Ilfracombe, with its
whitewashed houses and grand Victorian villas.
We have the rest of the day here where we can
obtain lunch, explore and take in the aura of a
traditional seaside resort.


Today is Market Day in Barnstaple and
we have the day free to explore the town. On a
crook of land between the rivers Taw and Yeo it
retains the charm of its ancient origins and at
the heart is the splendid town hall, elegant
Georgian building with the High Street partly
pedestrianised and the Pannier Market with its
great canopied roof is a focal point of this
fascinating town.


This morning we have a full day out
to North Cornwall and the popular resort of
Bude. We make our way through Bideford and
past Clovelly onto the ‘Atlantic Highway’ which
runs way down into South Cornwall. Bude has a
history of smugglers. In the 19th century the
town was notorious for the ‘Wreckers’ who
plundered the ships that came to grief off the
coast. Then a visit to Affinity Devon Outlet
Shopping Centre before we return to the hotel.


After breakfast we depart and head
for home.
