  • We make our way across Exmoor to the twinned coastal towns of Lynton & Lynmouth.  The towns are set between steep hillsides and deep wooded valleys, separated by a dramatic descent, and are joined by a unique water powered railway.  Following our free time here we continue to the seaside town of Minehead where we spend the rest of the day before returning to the hotel. 
  • We enjoy a scenic morning as we travel via Appledore and Westward Ho! making brief stops at each to marvel at the spectacular views.  We continue to the pretty privately owned village of Clovelly, which remains a fully functioning working fishing village, clinging to a 400 foot cliff, overlooking Bideford Bay.  Watch the film show of the history of the village at the Visitor Centre, browse the shops & craft centre before strolling down the street to the working port, visiting Kingsley Museum and Fisherman’s Cottage along the way (our entrance fee to the village includes the film show, two museums and Clovelly Court Gardens).
  • Please Note: The Village has steep cobbled streets and may not be suitable for people with walking difficulties, however they do operate a Land Rover Service, for which there is a small charge (not included in the cost).
