Historic attractions tour

Starting the day at 9.30am, we’ll head straight to Exeter’s Quayside for the first short stop. Then on to Powderham Castle to enjoy a delicious Devon cream tea, followed by a unique tour of one of England’s oldest family homes.

We’ll then drive South into Torbay and visit Orestone Manor for a traditional English lunch in the Edwardian retreat overlooking Lyme Bay. Then a short drive to Kents Cavern for a tour of the Prehistoric Caves, to join the millions of explorers who have ventured inside since 1571.

Leaving Torbay, we’ll head onto Dartmoor Park to visit the spectacular Haytor Rock, where you can enjoy breath-taking views for many miles around. After all the photos, relax and reflect on all the experiences of the day with a swift and comfortable drive back to your hotel.

Dartmoor National Park Tour

We will collect you at 9.30am and head straight to Haytor Rocks to take in the vast sights and enjoy a brisk walk. Then on to Widecombe-In-The-Moor, stroll around the small village, perfect for an irresistable Devon cream tea or something a little stronger!

Then heading on to Dartmeet, a popular beauty spot, cross the River Dart using the remains of the old clapper bridge and hop back over using the big boulders. Then travelling west to Princetown, to visit one of Englands most famous prisons and wander around the interesting on-site Museum as well as a quick stop at the Visitors Centre.

All this before stopping at Postbridge, where you can have a browse around Powdermills Potter, which was once part of a 19th century gunpowder factory! All that’s left, is to relax and unwind during the picturesque drive back.

The South Coast Tour

Starting the day at 8.30am, we’ll head straight to the famous Eden Project. Here you can experience the world’s largest rainforest in captivity and stunning garden displays.

We’ll then drive south to the beautiful Mevagissey and stop for lunch at the exquisite Trevalsa Court Restaurant, boasting its own secluded cove – you could take a quick dip or dabble in the rock pools.

Lastly we’ll head west to St Mawes Castle, which is among the best preserved of Henry VIII’s coastal fortresses and the most elaborately decorated of them all.

Lands end Tour

We will begin our day at 8.30am with a south westerly drive straight to the most famous of Cornish holiday towns – St Ives. A leisurely stroll will take you past many galleries (including the famous Tate), gardens and cafes, a maze of tiny cobbled streets to wander through, with a breath-taking seaside vista to greet you at the end.

We’ll then drive south to the delightful Mount Haven Restaurant for a fresh, local lunch. Overlooking the iconic St Michaels Mount, its an oasis of peace and tranquility. Lastly it’s west to the magical Lands End, an unforgettable, untamed beauty. See the famous signpost and stroll along the spectacular granite clifftops before heading back.
