Travel to Tiverton in mid-Devon for a 4 night stay.

Day 2
Excursion to the stylish Regency resort of Sidmouth, situated on the Jurassic Coast, England's first natural World Heritage Site. 'A town caught still in a timeless charm' - that was the Sidmouth that captivated the Poet Laureate, John Betjeman, and Sidmouth still captivates today. We continue to the seaside resort of Exmouth, where artists and poets have been inspired over the centuries, for a relaxing River Exe circular cruise, with live commentary on the sights, history and wildlife of the surrounding area.

Tour through the delightful Exmoor National Park to the unique medieval village of Dunster which has over 200 listed buildings, before continuing to the coastal resort of Minehead. Enjoy a nostalgic steam train ride through the glorious Somerset countryside on the West Somerset Railway, the longest steam heritage railway.

Day 4
After breakfast we have some free time in Tiverton, before we watch the world go by very peacefully along the idyllic Grand Western Canal on the last horse-drawn barge trip in the South West - a little bit of 'heaven' in Devon! We visit Bickleigh Mill which is one of Devon's largest rural shopping centres located in a historic working watermill.

Day 5
Time to reluctantly head for home.
