Highlights: Lynton & Lynmouth, Dunster, Exmoor National Park, Bideford, Bude, Barnstaple
Set amid the dramatic coastline, with marvellous sea views and magnificent surrounding countryside, it is easy to see why Ilfracombe is such a popular touring centre. Built around its ancient harbour, and nestling snugly into the breathtaking Atlantic coast, Ilfracombe was simply made for holidays. Explore the narrow lanes leading down to the harbour, the craft shops, famous beach tunnels and traditional seaside shops, and discover the lush rolling Devon countryside and the wild beauty of Exmoor on our included excursion programme.
FULL DAY: A lovely full day excursion taking-in the enchanting North Devon Coast, Exmoor and 'Doone Country' - the landscape that inspired the classic novel ‘Lorna Doone’. We visit the unspoiled
medieval village of Dunster, dominated by its romantic castle and once described as 'a perfect relic of feudal times'. Then it’s past Minehead to the lovely twin towns of Lynton and Lynmouth, set one above the other and linked by a cliff railway.
FULL DAY: A full day excursion to Bideford and Bude. This morning we head to the historic port of Bideford, across the bridge that spans the River Torridge, to the busy quay. There is time to explore the narrow streets before following the traditional Atlantic Highway into Cornwall and the seaside resort of Bude with its magnificent golden beach.
HALF DAY: Today’s excursion heads for the ancient market town of Barnstaple, where there is time to shop in the historic Pannier Market for Devon specialities such as clotted cream and lace.
