This quintessential bucket and spade resort appeared in The Guardian in late 2016, being described as one of "Britain's most booming seaside towns, undergoing a style revival with Michelin starred restaurants and swanky yachts"! You only have to drive along the seafront or take a stroll along the promenade to know that this is true.



We depart Lincolnshire for the South coast, with comfort stops on the way.


This morning we visit one of the pretty villages in this area. Your driver will allow time for you to explore before departing for an afternoon scenic tour of the Dartmoor National Park, Dartmoor was one of the first National Parks to be designated in Britain in 1951. It boasts stark and beautiful moors, huge stone tors, ancient clapper bridges and the famous Dartmoor ponies. Its moorland landscape is characterised by rough grazing land, wooded valleys and distinctive granite tors.


Today has been set aside for you to enjoy your resort, Torquay is a real Devon foodie town, part of England's Seafood Coast with a delicious selection of the freshest fish and seafood on offer from the nearby fish market. There are eateries galore and even a top Michelin star restaurant, The Elephant. Live music brings the delightful harbourside to life on warm summer evenings where there are many places to eat and drink al fresco, but many a cosy pub and eatery to enjoy in the cooler months too.


This morning we travel to Paignton Zoo, See the majestic giraffes tower over ostriches, black rhinos and cheetahs in the Savannah. Visit the birds soaking up the heat in the dry plains of the desert and definitely don't miss our tigers, lions, gibbons, gorillas and orangutans swinging around in the wooded forest. See pelicans, ducks, flamingos and cranes in the sanctuary of the Wetland; while many geckos, snakes and lizards can be found in the humid and steamy Tropical Forest. This afternoon we have free time to explore at your leisure.


After breakfast we depart the hotel and travel up the road to the House of Marbles, Be amazed and amused at House of Marbles. Lots of wonderful sights to behold for all ages. Shop at House of Marbles for quality toys, games, gifts and realise there is so much more. Discover the glassworks where you can see traditional and modern glassmaking techniques at work. They have museums of games, glass, pottery and marbles, bespoke interactive marble runs plus many nooks and crannies filled with charm and tradition. This afternoon we travel to Buckfast Abbey, this beautiful Abbey has a firmly rooted Benedictine spirit, you will have free time to enjoy the spectacular architecture and maybe enjoy some refreshments as you relax and take in the atmosphere.

We say farewell to our hosts and travel back to Lincolnshire, with comfort stops on the way.
